Hozier – Cherry Wine lyrics

Her eyes and words are so icy
Oh but she burns
Like rum on the fire

Hot and fast and angry
As she can be

I walk my days on a wire.

It looks ugly, but it's clean,
Oh momma, don't fuss over me
.

The way she tells me I'm hers and she is mine
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.

Calls of guilty fall on me
All while she stains
The sheets of some other

Thrown at me so powerfully
Just like she throws with the arm of her brother.

But I want it, it's a crime
That she's not around most of the time
.

The way she shows me I'm hers and she is mine
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
Blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine
.

Her fight and fury is fiery
Oh but she loves
Like sleep to the freezing

Sweet and right and merciful
I'm all but washed
In the tide of her breathing.

And it's worth it, it's divine
And I can have this some of the time
.

The way she shows me I'm hers and she is mine
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.

    A song about a relationship what isn't completely full of love. But you accept the love what you get. Because you think that's what you deserve. He tells about her like she's his muse. Even when his world is tearing apart. Isn't it weird that many people live like this?
    I love this song so much, it makes me think of my ex boyfriend who treated me like shit. Tears streaming while listening to this.
