Hozier – In The Woods Somewhere lyrics

Her head was warm,
Her skin was soaked.
I called your name 'til the fever broke.

When I awoke
The moon still hung.
The night so black that the darkness hummed

I raised myself.
My legs were weak.
I prayed my mind be good to me.

An awful noise
Filled the air.
I heard a scream in the woods somewhere.

A woman's voice!
I quickly ran
Into the trees with empty hands.

A fox it was,
He shook afraid.
I spoke no words, no sound he made.

His bone exposed,
His hind was lame.
I raised a stone to end his pain.

What caused the wound?
How large the teeth?
I sure knew eyes were watching me.

The creature lunged.
I turned and ran
To save a life I didn't have.

Deer in the chase
There as I flew
Forgot all prayers of joining you.

I clutched my life
And wished it kept.
My dearest love I'm not done yet

How many years
I know I'll bear
I found something in the woods somewhere

    I think he tried to kill himself because of a woman he lost. He failed his suicide attempt and when he fought to keep himself alive he realized he didn't actually want to die along with her (hopes of joining her) and he felt as though he missed her but he still wanted to live.
