Be - Hozier

When all the worst we fear lifts all its weight
When the gyre widens on and when the wave breaks
When St. Peter loses cool and bars the Gates
When Atlas acts so mad it makes his arms shake
When the birds are heard again and they're singing
Once atrocities [?] in shame
And when the earth is trembling on some new beginnin'
With the same sweet shock of when Adam first came

Be, be, be, be
Be as you've always been
Be, be, be, be
Be as you've always been (lover, be good to me)

Be as you've always been (lover, be good to me)
Be like the love that discovered the sand (lover, be good to me)
That freed the first man and will do so again
And lover, be good to me (lover, be good to me)
Be that hopeful feeling when Eden was lost (lover, be good to me)
That's been destroyed after since the master was crossed (lover, be good to me)
Which side of the [?]
Oh lover, be good to me

When the man who gives the order
Is born next time round on the boats sent back
When the body is starvin' at the border
Or on TV giving people the sack
Lord, when the sea rises to meet us
Oh and there's nothing left for you and I to do
Oh and there's nobody upstairs to receive us
When I have no kind words left, lover you will

Be, be, be, be
Be as you've always been
Be, be, be, be
Be as you've always been (lover, be good to me)

Be love in its disrepute (lover, be good to me)
Scorches the hillside and salts every root (lover, be good to me)
And watch as it's slowing and starving the troops
And lover, be good to me (lover, be good to me)
Be there, in your stairs you stay (lover, be good to me)
Or be like the roses you hold in your hand (lover, be good to me)
That will grow bold in a barren and desolate land
Oh lover, be good to me (lover, be good to me)

Love won't you be,
Love won't you be,
Be as you've always been?
Love won't you be,
Love won't you be,
Be as you've always been?
Love won't you be,
Love won't you be,
Be as you've always been?
Love won't you be,
Love won't you be,
Be as you've always been?

(Lover, be good to me)
