Swan Upon Leda Hozier Lyrics

Her husband waits outside
A cryin’ child pushes a child into the night
She was told he would come this time
Without leavin’ so much as a feather behind
To enact at last the perfect plan
One more sweet boy to be butchered by hand

[Chorus]
But the gateway to the world
Was still outside of reach for them
Would never belong to angels
Had never belonged to men
The swan upon Leda
Empire upon Jerusalem
[Verse 2]
A grandmother smugglin’ eggs
Past where the god child-soldier
Setanta stood dead
Our graceful turner of heads
Weaves through the checkpoints like a needle and thread
Someone’s frightened boy waves her on
She offers a mother’s smile and soon she’s gone

[Chorus]
The gateway to the world
Is gone in a tremblin’ hand
When nature unmakes the boundary
The pillar of myth still stands
The swan upon Leda
Occupier upon ancient land

[Instrumental Bridge]

[Outro]
But the gateway to the world
Is still outside the reach of hands
Would never belong to angels
Had never belonged to men
