Foreigner’s God Lyrics – Hozier


[Verse 1]
She moved with shameless wonder
The perfect creature rarely seen
Since some liar brought the thunder
When the land was godless and free

Her eyes look sharp and steady
Into the empty parts of me
But still my heart is heavy
With the hate of some other man’s beliefs

[Pre-Chorus]
Always a well dressed fraud
Who wouldn’t spare the rod
Never for me

[Chorus]
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
The purest expression of grief

[Verse 2]
Wondering who I copy
Mustering some tender charm
She feels no control of her body
She feels no safety in my arms

I’ve no language left to say it
But all I do is quake to her
Breaking if I try convey it
The broken love I make to her

[Pre-Chorus]
All that I’ve been taught
And every word I’ve got
Is foreign to me

[Chorus]
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
The purest expression of grief

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
The purest expression of grief

Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner’s God
The purest expression of grief
