Almost (Sweet Music)

Hozier

I came in from the outside
Burned out from a joyride
She likes to roll here in my ashes, anyway

Played from the bedside
Stella by starlight
There was my heart
The drums that start off night and day

The same kind of music haunts her bedroom
I'm almost me again, she's almost you

I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playin' in the dark
Be still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playin' in the dark
But still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me

Tell me who, and I'd be thanking 'em
The numbered lovers of Duke Ellington
Do I owe each kiss to lip and cheek
As soft as Chet can sing?

Let's get lost and let the good times roll
Let's smoke rings from this paper doll
Blow sweet and thick
'Til every thought of it don't mean a thing

I got some color back
She thinks so, too
I laugh like me again
She laughs like you

I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playin' in the dark
But still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playin' in the dark
But still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't

I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know

The very thought of you and am I blue?
A love supreme seems far removed
I get along without you
Very well some other nights

Lord, the radio newsreader chimes
Reporting Russian lullabies
She'll turn to me, awake, and ask
Is everything alright?

And Lord, I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playin' in the dark
But still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playin' in the dark
But still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playin' in the dark
But still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playin' in the dark
But still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me
