Jackie and Wilson

Hozier

So tired trying to see from behind the red in my eyes
No better version of me I could pretend to be tonight
So deep in the swill with the most familiar of swine
For reasons wretched and divine

She blows out of nowhere on the 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

'Cause with my mid-youth crisis all said and done
I need to be youthfully felt 'cause God I never felt young

She's gonna save me
Call me 'baby'
Run her hands through my hair
She'll know me crazy
Soothe me daily
Well, yet she wouldn't care
We'll steal her Lexus
Be detectives
Ride 'round picking up clues
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson
Raise 'em on rhythm and blues

Lord it'd be great to find a place to escape sometime
Me and my Isis growing black irises in the sunshine
Every version of me dead and buried in the yard outside
Sit back and watch the world go by

Happy to lie back watch it burn and rust
We tried to work good God it wasn't for us

She's gonna save me
Call me 'baby'
Run her hands through my hair
She'll know me crazy
Soothe me daily
Well, yet she wouldn't care
We'll steal her Lexus
Be detectives
Ride 'round picking up clues
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson
Raise 'em on rhythm and blues

Cut clean from the dream that night let my mind reset
Lookin' up from a cigarette and she's already left
I start diggin' up the yard for what's left of me and our little vignette
For whatever poor soul is coming next

She's gonna save me
Call me 'baby'
Run her hands through my hair
She'll know me crazy
Soothe me daily
Well, yet she wouldn't care
We'll steal her Lexus
Be detectives
Ride 'round picking up clues
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson
Raise 'em on rhythm and blues
