Hozier – Unknown / Nth Lyrics

Hozier Unknown / Nth Lyrics

You know the distance never made a difference to me
I swam a lake of fire, I’d have walked across the floor of any sea
Ignored the vastness between all that can be seen
And all that we believe
So I thought you were like an angel to me

Funny how true colors shine in darkness and in secrecy
If there were scarlet flags, they washed out in the mind of me
Where a blindin’ light shone on you every night
And either side of my sleep
Where you were held frozen like an angel to me

It ain’t the being alone (Sha-la-la)
It ain’t the empty home, baby (Sha-la-la)
You know I’m good on my own (Sha-la-la)
Sha-la-la, baby, no, it’s more the being unknown
So much of the livin’, love, is the being unknown

You called me angel for the first time, my heart leapt from me
You smile now, I can see its pieces still stuck in your teeth
And what’s left of it, I listen to it tick
Every tedious beat
Going unknown as any angel to me

Do you know I could break beneath the weight?
Of the goodness, love, I still carry for you
That I’d walk so far just to take
The injury of finally knowin’ you

It ain’t the being alone (Sha-la-la)
It ain’t the empty home, baby (Sha-la-la)
You know I’m good on my own (Sha-la-la)
Sha-la-la, baby, no, it’s more the being unknown
And there are some people, love, who are better unknown

Mm-mm-hmm
