hounds of love lyrics – futureheads

when i was a child, running in the night,
i was afraid of what might be
hiding in the dark and hiding on the street,
and of what was following me

uh oh oh oh oh
the hounds of love are calling
i’ve always been a coward,
uh oh oh oh oh

and i don’t know what’s good for me
well here i go, it’s coming at me through the trees
help me, someone, help me, please
take your shoes off, and i will throw them in the lake,
and i will be, two steps on the water

i found a fox, who was caught by dogs,
he let me take him in my hands
his little heart, it beat so fast
and i’m ashamed to be running away
from nothing real, i just can’t deal with this
i feel ashamed to be there uh oh oh oh oh oh

among your hounds of loving
and feel your arms surround me
i’ve always been a coward, and i don’t know what’s good for me
oh, here i go, don’t let me go, hold me down
it’s coming at me through the trees
help me, someone, help me, please
take my shoes off, and i will throw them in the lake,
and i will be, two steps on the water
and i will be, two steps on the water

do you know what i need, do you know what i need,
i need love love love love love, yeah
take my shoes off, and throw them in the lake,
and i will be, two steps on the water

do you know what i need, do you know what i need,
i need love love love love love, yeah
do you know what i need, do you know what i need,
i need love love love love love, yeah
