hounds of love lyrics – the 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

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

among your hounds of loving
and feel your arms surround me
i’ve always been a coward, and i dont 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 your 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
