Swan Upon Leda Songtext
von Hozier

Swan Upon Leda Songtext

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

The gateway to the world
Was still outside of reach of him
Would never belong to angels
Had never belonged to men
The swan upon Leda
Empire upon Jerusalem


A grandmother smuggling meds
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

The gateway to the world
The gun in a trembling hand
When nature unmakes the boundary
The pillar of myth still stands
The swan upon Leda
Occupier upon an ancient land

The gateway to the world
Was still outside the reach of him
Would never belong to angels
Had never belonged to men
