Hozier – In the Woods Somewhere Lyrics

[Verse 1]
My head was warm
My skin was soaked
I called your name ’til the fever broke
When I awoke
The moon still hung
The night so black that the darkness hums

[Verse 2]
I raised myself
My legs were weak
I prayed my mind be good to me
An awful noise
Filled the air
I heard a scream in the woods somewhere

Ooh, oo-ooh, oo-ooh

[Verse 3]
A woman’s voice
I quickly ran
Into the trees with empty hands
A fox it was
He shook afraid
I spoke no words, no sound he made

[Verse 4]
His bone exposed
His hind was lame
I raised a stone to end his pain
What caused the wound?
How large the teeth?
I saw new eyes were watching me

Ooh, oo-ooh, oo-ooh

[Verse 5]
The creature lunged
I turned and ran
To save a life I didn’t have
Dear, in the chase
There as I flew
Forgot all prayers of joining you

[Verse 6]
I clutched my life
And wished it kept
My dearest love, I’m not done yet
How many years
I know I’ll bear
I found something in the woods somewhere

Ooh, oo-ooh, oo-ooh
