SHRIKE
Hozier


I couldn't utter my love when it counted
Ah, but I'm singing like a bird 'bout it now
I couldn't whisper when you needed it shouted
Ah, but I'm singing like a bird 'bout it now

The bites on above
But never would form
Like a cry at the final
Breath that is drawn

Remember me, love
When I'm reborn
As the shrike to your sharp
And glorious thorn

And I had no idea on what ground I was found in
All of that goodness is goin' with you now
Then when I met you, my virtues uncounted
All of my goodness is goin' with you now

Driving alone
Following your form
Hung like the pelt
Of some prey you had worn

Remember me, love
When I'm reborn
As a shrike to your sharp
And glorious thorn

I fled to the city with so much discounted
Ah, 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

I was hatched by your warmth
Thus transformed
But you're grounded and giving
And darkening scorn

Remember me, love
When I'm reborn
As a shrike to your sharp
And glorious thorn
