Dermot Kennedy – The Killer Was A Coward lyrics
See the killer was a coward
Dark deeds in dark towers
So he fled when they came
Blowing brass, carrying chains

They want to lock him in the dark
They want to kill what's in his heart
And they left the town to hunt him down
And they left one man to hold it down

But when they get back he's in the throne
Looks like the killer's fucking clone
Says he's got ideas of his own
But there's one thing he'd kill to know

See there's a hero in the crowd
And his heart starts beating loud
Says the killer took his friend
And decides that this is where it ends

So at night the king's walking the tower
His eyes lit up with all the power
But the hero's ghosting by the guards
And his heart is carrying a charge

He stabs him in his cunning heart
The scream tore sea and sky apart
So you want fears? We still got several
At least the killer's dancing with the devil

The hero did it for days
When you don't know if the moon'll even come
And then it lays down
And I'm telling you, man, it's sweet when it does
And when I think of you I think of spirit definded
I think of all the love we shared in a very dark time

The hero did it for the summer
For long days with that sun in your hair
For fires and family
For the phrase "don't ever leave me"

Sorrow won't be finding me no more
Sorrow won't be finding me no more
Sorrow won't be finding me no more
When you're coming home now

Sorrow won't be finding me no more
Sorrow won't be finding me no more
Sorrow won't be finding me no more
When you're coming home now
