Hozier – Cherry Wine (Unplugged) | Mahogany Session

Her eyes and words are so icy Oh but she burns Like rum on a fire Hot and fast and angry As she can be I walk my days on a wire It looks ugly but it’s clean Oh mamma, don’t fuss over me The way she tells me I’m hers and she is mine Open hand or closed fist would be fine The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine Calls of guilty thrown at me All while she stains The sheets of some other Thrown at me so powerfully Just like she throws, with the arm of her brother But I want it It’s a crime That she’s not around most of the time The way she shows me I’m hers and she is mine Open hand or closed fist would be fine The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine Her fight and fury is fiery Oh but she loves Like sleep to the freezing Sweet and right and merciful I’m all but washed In the tide of her breathing And it’s worth it It’s divine And I have this some of the time The way she shows me I’m hers and she is mine Open hand or closed fist would be fine The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine

  1. The music and the cameras following the movement together is beautiful along with the blur of candles in the back:)))

  2. I think everyone interprets songs meanings differently but, I knew the first time this song was about a man being abused physically by his girlfriend. It is a subject not discussed or portrayed in movies enough.
    ******There are many men living in this situation and out of shame and fear of being viewed as weak they never seek help.**** If we witness it or suspect it we should intervene if we have any moral fiber!!!

  3. "Hi, I'm Hozier…" I dunno why but his speaking voice gets me weak… Take me to church my knees are jelly

  4. I have never been in any romantic relationship ever. And I know, I've seen domestic abuse being justified. I was always left angry and baffled at the end of the conversation, but this is so beautiful and vulnerable at the same time. I know how helpless love can make a person, how vulnerable and pathetic too, but this song takes everything that I've ever know to a different height. I literally get shivers and goosebumps ever time I hear it. And I am not someone who enjoys being vulnerable, but this makes me vulnerable. And I'm kinda ok with that. I keep on coming back to this. Wish this a person, I wouldn't mind marrying this song. And that's saying something as I'm a commitment fobic person.

  5. There are very few things in this world that are so calming and peaceful, that they just send me to sleep… Bob Ross episodes do it, and so apparently does this version of Cherry Wine… darn it, I love it so much but I'm yawning only a minute in XD

  6. His voice makes me wanna crack open some Norse Mythology on a cold winter day and drink stawberry wine by a fire

  7. * throws underwear on the stage, hopes they dont catch on fire * …is that a thing anymore?

  8. Few seconds in, and watery drops of emotions start falling down my face 🌧️💧🌊

  9. His voice is so powerful. It is great to have someone bringing awareness to the fact that men can be victims of domestic violence. We just don't hear much about it because there is a stigma attached to admitting that a woman hit you. It's an unfair situation. Remember guys, you don't have to stay anymore than a woman has to stay. Leave for your safety and sanity.

  10. yaAllah cow bejambang berkacamata suara berat banget seorang musisi yaAllah sampyan mas gak tahan pengen tak bungkus

  11. Hozier is the kind of being that belongs in a candle lit crypt hidden in the depths of a bustling city, but in a good way

  12. So, is this the Hozier, like the Take Me to Church guy? I’ve never see his face before. If so, I didn’t expect him to look like this.

  13. ***Starts playing the guitar

    Me: fuck this gonna be good
    ***likes video

  14. There is unnecessary pain and there is meaningful pain. I think I'm going through the later with a bit of enjoyment honestly.

  15. it's a relationship with an abusive female in it. The Guy complains in the song. He loves her, but she seems to have her own unique definition of love(the way she shows me I'm hers and she's mine).
    Thanks Hozy.
