Letra Hozier – To Be Alone

Never feel too good in crowds
With folks around, when they’re playing
The anthems of rape culture loud
Crude and proud creatures baying
All I’ve ever done is hide
From our times when you’re near me

Honey, when you kill the lights, and kiss my eyes
I feel like a person for a moment of my life
But you don’t know what hell you put me through
To have someone kiss the skin that crawls from you
To feel your weight in arms I’d never use

It’s the god that heroin prays to
It feels good, girl, it feels good
To be alone with you
There are questions I can’t ask
Now at last the worst is over
See the way you hold yourself
Reel against your body’s borders

I know that you hate this place
Not a trace of me would argue
Honey, we should run away, oh, someday
Our baby and her momma
And the damaged love she makes

But I don’t know what else that I would give
Than try to kiss the skin that crawls from you
Than feel your weight in arms I’d never use
It’s the god that heroin prays to
It feels good, girl, it feels good
To be alone with you
