Shrike by Hozier
Released : 2018

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

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

[Instrumental Interlude]

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
And I was 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
