Hozier – Arsonist's Lullabye lyrics

When I was a child, I heard voices...
Some would sing and some would scream
You soon find you have few choices...
I learned the voices died with me


When I was a child I'd sit for hours
Staring into open flames
Something in it - had a power,
Could barely tear my eyes away


All you have is your fire...
And the place you need to reach -
Don't you ever, tame your demons
But always keep them on a leash

[Humming]

When I was 16 my senses fooled me
Thought gasoline was on my clothes
I knew that something would always rule me...
I knew this sin was mine alone

All you have is your fire
And the place you need to reach
Don't you ever, tame your demons -
Always keep them on a leash

When I was a man I thought it ended
Well I knew loves perfect ache
But my peace has always depended
On all the ashes in my way

All you have is your fire,
And the place you need to reach
Don't you ever, tame your demons,
Always keep them on a leash...
