Dermot Kennedy – This Woodland Won't Listen lyrics
[Verse 1]
The monks kicking out at the birds in the square
You pushed your boat down the hill
That's not fair
Said you worked real hard on that
You said "I was just sailing for fun"
But I know his crest will have fallen when darkness has won

[Chorus]
Oh we were darkness
You were hope
You give me happiness ten fold
And now whenever I roam I'm not alone
You give me strength and I'll hold on

[Verse 2]
The king loaned his castle to someone he thought he knew
But greed sat in the throne, now the raiders are strolling through
He lay slumped in the valley
Nothing more than a broken man, no
Promising the wildlife that he'll take it all
All back if he can, oh no

[Chorus]
Oh we were darkness
You were hope
You give me happiness ten fold
And now whenever I roam I'm not alone
You give me strength and I'll hold (oh no)

[Bridge]
The trees don't walk they run wild
Saddle up the nights [?]
I would have seen you cast off into nothing
You couldn't see me but our hearts were almost touching
White horses running, that's all that what you wrote
And that sunset was stunning me too
Nothing proud down there
Running down won't get one sorry prayer from me
From me

Cause I'm not dragging you out, no
No I'm not dragging you out, no
This isn't me calling you out
I'm not calling you out

[Outro]
Just leave your shoes by the edge of the woods
You've never quite caught me but then, nobody could
Well I was free
Because I'd broken free and I was running
