Hozier - To Be Alone
Key of G# Major/F Minor
Notes: Notes are played over every word. Listen to song for timing.
On the final line of the verse the bracketed area in tab is played multiple times. Listen for timing
I'm not 100% sure on the Bridge. I am having a hard time hearing any chords during it to be honest. It builds
and to me, sounds like F notes at different areas of the guitar (other instruments too) + strength.
Enjoy!

VERSE 1
(Verse Riff & Bass)

Never feel too good in crowds,
With folks around
When they're playing
The anthems of rape culture loud,
Crude and proud
Creatures baying
All I've ever done is hide
From our times
When you're near me
Honey, when you kill the lights
And kiss my eyes
I feel like a person for a moment of my life

Bridge #1

F 
But you don't know what hell you put me through
F
To have someone kiss the skin that crawls from you
F
To feel your weight in arms I'd never use
F                                  G# - A#
It's the god that heroin prays to

Chorus #1

F                             G# - A#
It feels good, girl, it feels good
F                             G# - A#
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
F                             G# - A#
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
F
Oh to be alone with you


(Verse Bass & Verse Riff while singing notes)


Verse #2 
(Verse Riff & Bass)

There are questions I can't ask
Now at last
The worst is over
See the way you hold yourself
Reel against
Your body's borders
I know that you hate this place
Not a trace
Of me would argue
Honey, we should run away
Oh someday
Our baby and her momma
And the damaged love she make

Bridge #2

F
But I don't know what else that I would give
F
Than try to kiss the skin that crawls from you
F
Then feel your weight in arms I'd never use
F
It's the god that heroin prays to

Chorus #2

G#- A#
F                              G# - A#
It feels good, girl, it feels good
F                             G# - A#
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
F                              G# - A#
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
F
Oh to be alone with you

(Verse Bass & Verse Riff w/ humming notes)

Chorus #3

G# - A#

F                              G# - A#
It feels good, girl, it feels good
F                             G# - A#
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
F                              G# - A#
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
F
Oh to be alone with you

Never feel too good in crowds,
With folks around
When they're playing
The anthems of rape culture loud,
Crude and proud
Creatures baying
All I've ever done is hide
From our times
When you're near me
Honey, when you kill the lights
And kiss my eyes
I feel like a person for a moment of my life

But you don't know what hell you put me through
To have someone kiss the skin that crawls from you
To feel your weight in arms I'd never use
It's the god that heroin prays to

It feels good, girl, it feels good
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
Oh to be alone with you

There are questions I can't ask
Now at last
The worst is over
See the way you hold yourself
Reel against

Honey, we should run away
Oh someday

And the damaged love she make

But I don't know what else that I would give
Than try to kiss the skin that crawls from you
Then feel your weight in arms I'd never use
It's the god that heroin prays to

It feels good, girl, it feels good
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
Oh to be alone with you

It feels good, girl, it feels good
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
It feels good, girl, it feels good 
Oh to be alone with you
