Like real people do - Hozier
Tabbed by:Eamonn

Tuning:Standard

(Two of the hammer ons arrive as the bass does, rather than picked together 
with the hammer on following. as far as i can make out anyway.A little awkward
but sounds like what he is doing.)
Lyrics attached to music above.

I had a thought, dear
However scary,
About that night,
The bugs and the dirt
Why were you digging?
What did you bury,
Before those hands pulled me
From the earth?

I will not ask you where you came from,
I will not ask you and neither should you.

Honey just put your sweet lips on my lips
We should just kiss like real people do.

I knew that look dear,
Eyes always seeking
Was there in someone
That dug long ago,
So I will not ask you
Why you were creeping,
In some sad way I already know.

I could not ask and neither could you.

Honey just put your sweet lips on my lips
We could just kiss like real people do.

(this part seems to be different from live to ep,
 this is a mix of what I could hear.)
