[Verse 1]
I couldn't utter my love when it counted
Ah, but I'm singing like a bird 'bout it now
I couldn't whisper when you needed it shouted
Ah, but I'm singing like a bird 'bout it now

[Refrain]
Bite on above
But never would fall in
Like a cry at the final breath that is drawn
Remember me, love, when I'm reborn
As a shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn.

[Verse 2]
Had no idea on what ground I was found in
All of that goodness is gone with you now
There when I met you my virtues uncounted
All of my goodness is gone with you now

[Refrain]
Driving alone, following your form
Hung like the pelt of some prey you had worn
Remember me love, when I'm reborn
Is a shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn

[Verse 3]
Flying to the city with so much discounted
Ah, but I'm flying like a bird to you now
Back to the hedgerows where bodies are mounted
Ah, but I'm flying like a bird to you now

[Refrain]
I was hatched by your warmth
thusly transformed
By your grounded and giving
And darkening sworn
Remember me, love, when I'm reborn
like a shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn

Shrike Lyrics

Hozier – Shrike Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I couldn't utter my love when it counted
Ah, but I'm singing like a bird 'bout it now
I couldn't whisper when you needed it shouted
Ah, but I'm singing like a bird 'bout it now

[Refrain]
Bite on above
But never would fall in
Like a cry at the final breath that is drawn
Remember me, love, when I'm reborn
As a shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn.

[Verse 2]
Had no idea on what ground I was found in
All of that goodness is gone with you now
There when I met you my virtues uncounted
All of my goodness is gone with you now

[Refrain]
Driving alone, following your form
Hung like the pelt of some prey you had worn
Remember me love, when I'm reborn
Is a shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn

[Verse 3]
Flying to the city with so much discounted
Ah, but I'm flying like a bird to you now
Back to the hedgerows where bodies are mounted
Ah, but I'm flying like a bird to you now

[Refrain]
I was hatched by your warmth
thusly transformed
By your grounded and giving
And darkening sworn
Remember me, love, when I'm reborn
like a shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn
