The radio may be bound and determined to make us all sick of the song “Take Me To Church” by Hozier – but I am still a HUGE fan of the rest of his new self-titled album.
It turns out it’s one of those rare gems on which every song is good. And, if that doesn’t convince you to go listen to it* right there, then nothing else I could ever say will!
This guy has soul, amazing talent, and beautiful lyrics. Check out a few of my favorite of his songs (it was hard to choose!) in today’s Sunday Songbird.
“I had a thought, dear,
About that night,
The bugs and the dirt,
Why were you digging?
What did you bury,
Before those hands pulled me,
From the earth?
I will not ask you where you came from,
I will not ask you and neither should you,
Honey just put your sweet lips on my lips,
We should just kiss like real people do…”
Like Real People Do – Hozier
“When, my, time comes around,
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth,
No grave can hold my body down,
I’ll crawl home to her,
My baby never fret none,
About what my hands and my body done,
If the Lord don’t forgive me,
I’d still have my baby and my babe would have me…”
Work Song – Hozier
