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

Do do do do do
The hounds of love are haunting me
Oo oo oo oo oo
I've always been a coward
Oo oo oo oo oo
And I don't know what's good for me

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

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

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

Do do do do do
Among your hounds of love
Oo oo oo oo oo
And feel your arms surrounding me
Oo oo oo oo oo
I've always been a coward
Oo oo oo oo oo
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

Do do do do do
I don't know what's good for me
I don't know what's good for me
I need la la la la la yea yo yea yo
Your love

Do do do
Take your shoes off
And throw them in the lake

Do you know what I really need?
You know what I really need?
I need la la la la la yeah


Alternative

When I was a child
Running away from nothing
Heading for home (didi-do do didi-dow dow)
Now hounds of love are haunting (didi-do do didi-dow dow)
I've always been a coward (didi-do do didi-dow dow)
And I don't know what's good to me

C'mon
Run run run run run run honey
Run from the hounds of love
Run run run run run, run honey
Run from the hounds of love
Run run run run run keep running
Run from the hounds of love
They need lo-lo-lo-lo-love yeah

Do you know what I really need?
I know what I really need
But I don't know what's good for me
I don't know what's good for me

Oh I
I need love
Now hounds of love are haunting me
I've always been a coward
And I don't know what's good for me
I never know what's good to me

C'mon
Run run run run run run honey
Run from the hounds of love
Run run run run run keep running
Run from the hounds of love
Run run run run run run honey
Run from the hounds of love

So run run run run honey
Run run honey
Run run run run

Run run run run keep running
Run from the hounds of love
Run run run run run run honey
Run from the hounds of love

Run

Run from the hounds of love
