Hounds Of Love

It's in the trees!
It's coming!

When I was a child
Running in the night
Afraid of what might be
Hiding in the dark
Hiding in the street
And of what was following me

Now hounds of love are hunting
I've always been a coward
And I don't know what's good for me

Here I go
It's coming for me through the trees
Well, help me someone, help me please
Take my shoes off
And throw them in the lake
And I'll be two steps on the water

I found a fox, caught by dogs
He let me take him in my hands
His little heart, it beats so fast
And I'm ashamed of running away
From nothing real
I just can't deal with this
I'm still afraid to be there

Among your hounds of love
And feel your arms surround me
I've always been a coward
And never know what's good for me

Here I go
It's coming for me through the trees
Well, help me someone, help me please
Take my shoes off
And throw them in the lake
And I'll be two steps on the water

When I was a child
Running in the night
Afraid of what might be
Hiding in the dark
Hiding in the street
And of what was following me

Now hounds of love are hunting
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 for me through the trees
Well help me darling, help me please
Take my shoes off
And throw them in the lake
And I'll be two steps on the water

I don't know what's good for me
I don't know what's good for me
I need love, love, love, love, yeah
Your love

Take your shoes off
And throw them in the lake

Do you know what I really need?
Do you know what I really need?
I need love, love, love, love, yeah
