21 Genius Hozier Lyrics That Will Actually Give You Goosebumps

About two months ago, after a five-year hiatus, Andrew Hozier-Byrne released a well-awaited EP, Nina Cried Power, and today marks the release of a new single 'Movement.'

Since the release of 'Take Me to Church,' I have been a huge fan of the amazing Irish musician. Hozier's music is incredibly thought-out and simultaneously soothes the soul and awakens the kindred, lost wandering part of you.

Here's a compilation of some of my favorite lyrics up-to-date from both his old album, Hozier, as well as the EP, Nina Cried Power.

Be warned: I got goosebumps while re-listening to all these brilliant creations. And if you haven't, check out 'Movement' that was released earlier today.

From Eden, Hozier

Shrike, Hozier.

6. "All you have is your fire and the place you need to reach. Don't ever tame your demons, but always keep 'em on a leash."

7. "It's not the waking, it's the rising."

Nina Cried Power, Nina Cried Power.

8. "I will not as you where you came from, I will not ask you,  neither should you."

Like Real People Do, Hozier.

9. "Babe, there's something so tragic about you, something so magic about you; don't you agree?"

From Eden, Hozier.

10. "We'll lay here for years or for hours, your hand in my hand, so still and discreet."

In A Week, Hozier.

11. "Her eyes and words are so icy, oh,  but she burns like rum on fire."

Cherry Wine, Hozier.

12. "I've no language left to say it, all I do is crave to her."

Foreigner's God, Hozier.

13. "Honey, you're familiar like my mirror years ago."

From Eden, Hozier.

14. "'Cause there's no better love that's laid beside me. There's no better love that justifies me, there's no better."

Better Love, Hozier.

15. Give your heart and soul to charity 'cause the rest of you, the best of you, honey, belongs to me."

NFWMB, Nina Cried Power.

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

Jackie and Wilson, Hozier.

17. "You and I nursing on a poison that never stung, our teeth and lungs are lined with the scum of it."

Sedated, Hozier.

18. "There's an art to life's distractions; to somehow escape the burn weight. The art of scraping through."

Someone New, Hozier.

19. "I turned and ran to save a life I didn't have."

In the Woods Somewhere, Hozier.

20. "My lover's got humor, she's the giggle at a funeral. Knows everybody's disapproval, I should've worshipped her sooner."

Take Me to Church, Hozier.

21. "We tried the world, good God, it wasn't for us."

Jackie and Wilson, Hozier.

I hope some, if not most, of these lyrics blew your mind. If they did, definitely follow along with his musical journey.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

1875
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11105

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
