the signs as hozier songs/covers

((pls don’t get mad if you got a cover because anything is just great in hozier tbh))

aries: problem || tell me, tell me baby // why can’t you leave me? // cause even though I shouldn’t want it // I gotta have it // I want you!

taurus: run || rushing ashore to meet her // foaming with loneliness // white hands to fondle and beat her // give her his onliness // rare is this love, keep it covered // I need you to run to me, run to me, lover // run ‘til you feel your lungs bleeding

gemini: someone new || there’s an art to life’s distractions, // to somehow escape the burning weight, the art of scraping through, // some like to imagine,
The dark caress of someone else, I guess any thrill will do

cancer: like real people do || I will not ask you where you came from // I will not ask and neither should you // honey just put your sweet lips on my lips // we should just kiss like real people do

leo: foreigner’s god || wondering who I copy // mustering some tender charm // she feels no control of her body // she feels no safety in my armsI’ve no language left to say it // but all I do is quake to her // breaking if I try convey it // the broken love I make to her

virgo: take me to church || If the heavens ever did speak // she’s the last true mouthpiece // every Sunday’s getting more bleak // a fresh poison each week

libra: cherry wine || 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

scorpio: sedated || you and I nursing on a poison that never stung // our teeth and lungs are lined with the scum of it // somewhere for this, death and guns // we are deaf, we are numb // free and young and we can feel none of it

sagittarius: jackie and wilson || she blows outta nowhere, roman candle of the wild // laughing away through my feeble disguise // no other version of me I would rather be tonight // and, lord, she found me just in time

capricorn: do I wanna know? || I dreamt about you nearly every night this week // how many secrets can you keep? // 'cause there’s this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow and I play it on repeat // until I fall asleep // spilling drinks on my settee

aquarius: from eden || honey, you’re familiar like my mirror years ago // idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on its sword // innocence died screaming, honey, ask me I should know // I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

pisces: work song || boys, when my baby found me // I was three days on a drunken sin // I woke with her walls around me // nothin’ in her room but an empty crib // and I was burnin’ up a fever // I didn’t care much how long I lived // but I swear I thought I dreamed her // she never asked me once about the wrong I did
