about

Debut single for Danish electronica duo Owl in the Woods. A melancholic love song about loss and failure - to a 4/4 beat.

lyrics

All in your honour
All in your honour
All in your honour
Though I have no idea why

It's all in your honour
Though I have no idea why
My idea of beauty must be wrong
Since my mind keeps the lie

'Cuz sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds
Lillies that fester smell far worse than weeds
Sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds
Lillies that fester smell far worse than weeds

I should know better
Know better than to proceed
To let my brain get entangled
In the roots of this seed

Sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds
Lillies that fester smell far worse than weeds

I should know better
I should know better

'Cuz sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds
Lillies that fester smell far worse than weeds
Sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds
Lillies that fester smell far worse than weeds
