Hounds of Love Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

"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

Oh, here I go
It's coming for me through the trees
Oh, help me, someone
Help me, please

And 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

But nothing real
I just can't deal with this
But I'm still afraid to be there

Among your hounds of love
And feel your arms surrounding me
I've always been a coward
I never 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
Oh, help me, darling
Help me, please

And 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, yeah
Your love

And 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, yeah
