Hozier – Nina Cried Power especially for those in Direct Provision

Published on Sep 12, 2018
Listen to Nina Cried Power from the Nina Cried Power EP: https://Hozier.lnk.to/NCPID Follow Hozier : https://Hozier.lnk.to/FollowID Hozier Store : https://Hozier.lnk.to/StoreID I’m very proud to present the video for ‘Nina Cried Power’, directed by Jon Hozier-Byrne and Patrick Ryan. This song was intended as a thank you note to the spirit and legacy of protest; to the artists who imbued their work with the vigour of dissent, and a reflection on the importance of that tradition in the context of the rights, and lives, we enjoy today. My hope for this video is much the same. Ireland has undergone a socio-cultural sea change, the results of which will benefit generations to come. We are witness to a new Ireland waking to the consciousness of itself; a kinder, more inclusive nation. This video is an attempt to acknowledge just a handful of those who have fought for this new Ireland, and whose work continues to inspire me. Thank you to Christina Noble, for showing the limitlessness of human kindness, and its ability to achieve the seemingly impossible. Thank you to Bernadette McAliskey and Eamon McCann, who fought for the bitterly-resisted equal right to vote, and who bore witness to atrocity and would not be silenced. Thank you to Joe Caslin, who literally coated Dublin city itself with reflections on our capacity for compassion as a people. Thank you to Saoirse Long, whose honesty revealed not only our own failures as a people, but laid bare the true face of what barred the way of progress for women’s reproductive rights. Thank you to Panti Bliss, who remains a leading voice advocating for inclusion, and a standard-bearer for the new Ireland we are watching unfold. Thank you to Victoria Chimera for fighting tirelessly for equal opportunities in education. Thank you to Anna Cosgrave, who provided real leadership to my generation, and brought new widespread visibility to the issue of reproductive rights. Thank you to Simone George for her indelible spirit, and for fighting injustice in its many forms. Thank you to Grace Dyas whose decisions in work and life give to us an example of bravery and conscience. Thank you to Sinéad Burke for pushing tirelessly for inclusivity in her industry and beyond. Thank you to Maria Walsh for using her platform to promote gender equality, and the right for everyone to love who they love. Thank you to Colm O’Gorman, for his unwavering dedication to human rights and his fearless speaking of truth to power. Thank you to Ellie Kisyombe for reminding us of the meaning of home. Thank you to Stephen Rea for the work he does both for UNICEF, and for Ireland itself. Thank you to Sam Blanckensee for their important work on gender recognition legislation. Thank you to Florence Adebambo and Aaron Edo for reminding us of the bright future that awaits those who have joined us from afar, and how that future needs to be fought for. Thank you to Blessings Moyo and Lucky Khambule for reminding us how much further we have to go, and how we must strive to do better. Thank you to Mavis Staples, for giving to the world a timeless example of how worthwhile the raising of one’s voice is, in song and in protest. Thank you to you all for your work, for joining us on set and allowing us to play you the song for the first time. You are all truly inspirational figures, and this video is for you.

It’s not the wakin’, it’s the risin’
It is the groundin’ of a foot uncompromisin’
It’s not forgoin’ of the lie, It’s not the openin’ of eyes
It’s not the wakin’, it’s the risin’

It’s not the shade we should be casting
It’s the light, it’s the obstacle that casts it
It’s the heat that drives the light
It’s the fire it ignites
It’s not the wakin’, it’s the risin’

It’s not the song, it is the singin’
It’s the heaven of the human spirit ringin’
It is the bringin’ of the line
It is the bearin’ of the rhyme
It’s not the wakin’, it’s the risin’

And I could cry power (power)
Power (power)
Power, Lord!
Nina cried power
Billie cried power
Mavis cried power
And I could cry power
Power (power)
Power (power)
Power, Lord!
Curtis cried power
Patti cried power
Nina cried power

It’s not the wall, but what’s behind it
Oh, the fear of fellow men is near assignment
And everything that we’re denied
By keepin’ the divide
It’s not the wakin’, it’s the risin’

And I could cry power (power)
Power (power)
Power (power)
Power, Lord!
Nina cried power
Lennon cried power
James Brown cried power
And I could cry power
Power (power)
Power (power)
Power
Billy cried power
Joni cried power
Nina cried powerAnd I could cry power
Power has been cried by those stronger than me
Straight into the face that tells you to rattle your chains
If you love bein’ freeAh, Lord, I could cry power
Power (power)
‘Cause power is my love when my love reaches to me
James Brown cried power
Seger cried power
Marvin cried power
Yeah ah, power
James cried power
Millie cried power
Patti cried power
Billie, power
Dylan, power
Woody, power
Nina cried power

Hozier – Almost (Sweet Music)

Hozier – Almost (Sweet Music) (Official Video)

Almost (Sweet Music) Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I came in from the outside, burned out from a joy ride
She likes to roll here in my ashes anyway
Played from the bedside is “Stella by Starlight”
That was my heart, the drums that start off “Night and Day”

[Pre-Chorus 1]
The same kind of music haunts her bedroom
I’m almost me again, she’s almost you

[Chorus]
I wouldn’t know where to start
Sweet music playing in the dark
Be still, my foolish heart
Don’t ruin this on me
I wouldn’t know where to start
Sweet music playing in the dark
Be still, my foolish heart
Don’t ruin this on me

[Verse 2]
Tell me who, and I’ll be thanking them
The numbered lovers of Duke Ellington
Do I owe each kiss to lip and cheek as soft as Chet can sing
Let’s get lost and let the good times roll

Let smoke rings from this paper doll
Blow sweet and thick
’til every thought of it don’t mean a thing

Cherry Wine

Hozier

Her eyes and words are so icy
Oh but she burns
Like rum on the 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 momma, 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
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
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.
