Jackie and Wilson
by Hozier



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

Cheap lows out of nowhere, roman candle of while
Laughing away through my feeble disguise
No other version of me I would pretend to be tonight
Cause Lord she found me just in time

Cause with my... crisis all said and done
I need to be youthfully felt
Cause Lord I never felt young
She's gonna save me call me baby go right into my head
She'll know me crazy soon be failing as she wouldn't care
We'll still her ex's be detective I found taking her blues
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson, raise em on rhythm and blues

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

Every... like that, watch it burn and rust
We tried to work, good god it wasn't for us
She's gonna save me, call me baby, running her hands through my hair
We'll still her ex's be detective I found taking her blues
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson, raise em on rhythm and blues

Cut clean from the dream at night with my mind upset
Looking up from the cigarette, she's already left
Start thinking of the art what's left of me... yet
One episode is coming next

She's gonna save me, call me baby, running her hands through my hair
She'll know me crazy soon be failing as she wouldn't care
We'll still her ex's be detective I found taking her blues
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson, raise em on rhythm and blues
