hozier: a tribute

this week i mainly listened to one person: hozier. he just released a new song this week, and paired with a new playlist on spotify, “this is: hozier,” this is all i wanted to listen to.

i loved hozier’s self-titled album that was released back in 2014, and after a long wait he is releasing new music now in 2018. this week i just want to go over my favorite songs. i encourage you all to give him a listen if you haven’t already! it’s great music to unwind to and relax (for me at least.)


here are my favorites:

someone new (self-titled album)

“there’s an art to life’s distractions,
to somehow escape the burning weight, the art of scraping through.
some like to imagine,
the dark caress of someone else, i guess any thrill will do.”

and so i fall in love just a little bit every day with someone new

jackie and wilson (self-titled album)

“’cause with my mid-youth crisis all said and done,
i need to be youthfully felt ’cause, god, i never felt young

she’ll know me crazy, soothe me daily, better yet she wouldn’t care

in a week (self-titled album)

“we’ll lay here for years or for hours,
thrown here or found, to freeze or to thaw.
so long, we’d become the flowers
two corpses we were, two corpses i saw.
we’ll lay here for years or for hours,
your hand in my hand, so still and discreet.
so long, we’d become the flowers.
we’d feed well the land and worry the sheep.

and they’d find us in a week,
when the cattle’d show fear.
after the insects have made their claim,
after the foxes have known our taste,
i’d be home with you, i’d be home with you.

and they’d find us in a week,
when the buzzards get loud.
after the insects have made their claim.
after the foxes have known our taste,
after the raven has had his say,
i’d be home with you, i’d be home with you


 

 

until next time,

haley
