Hozier – Shrike

Shrike

[Instrumental]

[Verse 1]
I couldn't utter my love when it counted
But I'm singing like a bird about it now
And I couldn't whisper when you needed it shouted
But I'm singing like a bird about it now

[Chorus 1]
Words hung above, but never would form
Like a cry at the final breath that is drawn
Remember me, love when I'm reborn
As a shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn

[Verse 2]
I'd no idea on what ground I was founded
All of that goodness is going with you now
Then when met you, my virtues uncounted
All of my goodness is going with you now

[Chorus 2]
Dragging along, following your form
Hung like the pelt of some prey you had worn
Remember me love, when I'm reborn
As the shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn

[Verse 3]
I fled to the city with so much discounted
But I'm flying like a bird to you now
Back to the hedgerows where bodies are mounted
Ah but I'm flying like a bird to you now

[Chorus 3]
I was housed by your warmth
But I was transformed
By your grounded and giving
And darkening scorn

[Outro]
Remember me love, when I'm reborn
As the shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn
