I had a thought, dear
However scary
About that night
The bugs and the dirt
Why were you digging?
What did you bury
Before those hands pulled me
From the earth?

I will not ask you where you came from
I will not ask you and neither should you
Honey just put your sweet lips on my lips
We should just kiss like real people do

I knew that look dear
Eyes always seeking
Was there in someone
That dug long ago
So I will not ask you
Why you were creeping
In some sad way I already know

I will not ask you where you came from
I will not ask you and neither should you
Honey just put your sweet lips on my lips
We should just kiss like real people do

Do zombies sing? Talk?

Love this song and this whole album is pretty outstanding... awesome.
As Bill posited last year the lyrics are about lovers alright...but zombies. 
Dreamy, relaxing, lovely.
Rated 7 by Emilie, visiting us in London, but more frequently found in Michigan. pxd

I totally agree, just a young man starting out on his career as a singer songwriter with great potential.  I hope he develops his potential into success and I look forward to hearing more from him as his life unfolds.
Catchy Eldritch wails in the background always add a certain something....
Thought this was Lord Huron for a bit ...
He's just a kid, I think he has BIG talent. Wait and see....

Like real emoji do

I'll have to confess that I just don't get that one. We'll be revisiting the album sometime soon & see what else we come up with.

 
For what it's worth, you have all the best songs of his already up.

Please do not play Take Me To Church. Other joints have that one covered pretty well.

Male Enya, but maybe more to him than that?

 
The music of hers I've heard is generally all synthesizers with cryptic lyrics, and much more "ethereal" by design.  This guy seems more like a folk guitarist with some ethereal elements - more down-to-earth than his fellow Gael.
Very nice indeed.
local station has been playing him for awhile and he had a free show broadcast - very nice.
I like him. 
Saw a little Hozier performing at Coachella on the telly.  I apologize Hozier, you do have talent.

Lovely yes, but a bit healthier than ...Mogadon. (Isn't he related to Voldemort?).
