Florence Welch is taking her Machine out on tour again, hitting the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on March 16. But this time, the UK chart-topper tells Andy Welch, there’ll be no more rock ’n’ roll antics – it’s all about the music


Amid the deliveries, collections and heavy traffic of a west London industrial estate, something very exciting is happening. While one particular unit’s exterior is just as bland as all the others, its insides contain more colour and drama than any of the passing couriers could possibly imagine.

“We’re testing out giant video screens and projectors,” beams Florence Welch. Her Machine, this time around, consists of a guitarist, bass player, drummer, long-time collaborator Isabella Summers on keyboards, a harpist and an assortment of backing singers. They’re more like a gang than a band.

[Verse 1]

I'm gonna be released from behind these lights,
I don't care whether I leave or die,
And I'm loosing blood,
I'm gonna leave my bones,
And I don't want your heart,
It leaves me cold,
I don't want your future I don't need you past,
One brand moment is all I ask.

[Chorus]

I'm gonna leave my body,
(Moving up to higher ground)
I'm gonna loose my mind,
(The mystery keeps pulling me down)
Said I'm gonna leave my body,
(Moving up to higher ground)
I'm gonna lose my mind,
(The mystery keeps pulling me, and pulling me down)

[Verse 2]

I don't need a husband I don't need no wife,
And I don't need the dead or need the life,
And I don't need the birds let them fly away,
And I don't want the clouds never seem to stay,
I don't want your future I don't need your past,
One bright moment is all I ask,
I don't want your future I don't need your past,

[Verse 1]

And the heart is hard to translate,
It has a language of it's own,
It talks in tongues and quiet sighs and prayers and proclamations,
In the grand days of great men and the smallest of gestures,
In short shallow gasps,
But with all my education,
I can’t seem to commend it,
And the words are all escaping me,
And coming back all damaged,
And I would put them back in poetry,
If I only knew how,
I can’t seem to understand it.

[Chorus]

And I would give all this and heaven too,
I would give it all if only for a moment,
That I could just understand the meaning of the word you see,
Cause I’ve been scrawling it forever,
But it never makes sense to me at all.

[Verse 2]

And it talks to me in tiptoes,
And sings to me inside,
It cries out in the darkest night,
And breaks in morning light.
But with all my education,

[Verse 1]

When we first came here,
We were cold and we were clear,
With no colors on our skin,
We were light and paper thin,
And when we first came here,
We were cold and we were clear,
With no colors on our skin,
Until we let the spectrum in,
Say my name and every color illuminates,
We are shining and we will never be afraid again.

[Chorus]

Say my name and every color illuminates,
We are shining and we will never be afraid again,
Say my name and every color illuminates,
We are shining and we will never be afraid again.

[Verse 2]

And hen we come for you,
We'll be dressed all in blue,
With the ocean in our arms,
Kiss your eyes and kiss your palms,
And when it's time to pray,
We'll be dressed up all in gray,
With metal on our tongues and silver in our lunges,
Say my name and every color illuminates,
We are shining and we'll never be afraid again.

(Yeah-ah-ah, yeah-ah-ah)
(Yeah-ah-ah, yeah-ah-ah)
(Yeah-ah-ah, yeah-ah-ah)
(Yeah-ah-ah, yeah-ah-ah)

Oh the river oh the river it's running free,
Oh the joy oh the joy it brings to me,
But I know it'll have to drown me,
Before I can breathe easy,
And I've seen it in the flights of birds,
I've seen it in you,
And the entrails of the animals in the blood running through,
But in order to get to the heart,
It takes some time you have to cut through.
(We can, I know you can...)

[Chorus]

Just keep following the heartlines on your head,
Just keep following the heatlines on your head,
Keep in up I know you can,
Just keep following the heartlines on your head,
Cause I am.

[Verse 2]

On the sea, on the sea and land over land,
Creeping and crawling like the sea over sand,
Still I follow heartlines on your head,

[Verse 1]

Holy water cannot help me now,
A thousand armies couldn't keep me out,
I don't want your money,
I don't want your crowd,
See I have to tell you,
You're a ...
Holy water cannot help you now,
See I've had to burn your kingdom down,
And no rivers and no lakes can put the fire out,
I'm gonna raise the stakes,
I'm gonna smoke you out.

[Chorus]

Seven devils all around you,
Seven devils in my house,
See they were there when I woke up this morning,
I'll be dead before the day is done,
Seven devils all around you,
Seven devils in your house,
See I was dead when I woke up this morning,
I'll be dead before the day is done,
Before the day is done.

[Verse 2]

And now all your love will be exercised,
And we will find you saying it's to be?
And it's an even sum,
It's a melody,
It's a final cry,

[Verse 1]

You are the hole in my head,
You are the space in my bed,
You are the silence in between,
What I thought and what I said,
You are the nighttime fear,
You are the morning when it's clear,
When it's over you're a star,
You're my head and you're my heart.

[Chorus]

No light no light in your bright blue eyes,
I never knew daylight could be so violent,
A revelation in the light of day,
You can't choose what stays and what fades away,
And I'd do anything to make you stay,
No light no light,
Tell me what you want me to say.

[Verse 2]

In the crowd I was crying out,
And in your place there were a thousand war bed faces,
I was disappearing into plain sight,
Heaven help me I need to make it right,
You want a revelation you want to get it right,
You want a conversation I just can't have tonight,
You want a revelation some kind of resolution,

[Verse 1]

I've been loosing sleep,
I've been keeping myself awake,
I've been wondering the streets: for days and days and days,
Going from road to road,
Bed to bed,
Lover to lover and black to red,
And I believe I believe.

[Chorus]

There's no salvation for me now,
No space amongst the clouds,
And I feel I'm heading down,
That's all right,
That's all right,
That's all right,
That's all ri-i-i-i-i-i-ght.

[Verse 2]

And I've been taking chances,
I've been setting myself up for the fall,
And I've been keeping secrets from my heart and from my soul,
Going from road to road,
Bed do bed,
Lover to lover and black to red,
But I believe I believe.

[Chorus Repeat]

[Verse 3]

Road to road,
Bed to bed,
Lover to lover and black to red,
Road to road,
Bed to bed,
Lover to lov-er-er-er.

[Verse 1]

All a lone it was always there you see,
And even on my own it was always standing next to me,
I can see if coming from the edge of the room,
Creeping in the street light,
Holding my hand in the pail gloom,
Can you see it coming now?

[Chorus]

Oh-oh-oh-oh,
I think I'm breaking down again,
Oh-oh-oh-oh,
I think I'm breaking down.

[Verse 2]

All a lone even when I was child,
I've always known there was something to be frightened of,
And I can see it coming from the edge of the room,
Creeping in the street light,
Holding my hand in the pail gloom,
Can you see it coming now?

[Chorus Repeat]

[Verse 3]

All a lone on the edge of sleep,
My old familiar friend comes a lies down next to me,
And I can see if coming from the edge of the room,
Smiling in the street light,
Even with my eyes shut tight,

[Verse 1]

Well I can't help but frown underneath,
This fractured moonlight on the sea,
Reflections still look the same to me,
That's before I went under,
And it's peaceful in the deep cause this is where you cannot breathe,
No need to pray no need to speak: now I am under,
And it's breaking over me,
A thousand miles down to the see bay,
Found a place to rest my head,
(Never let me go, never let me go-o)
(Never let me go, never let me go-o)

[Chorus]

In the arms of the ocean help carry me,
And all this devotion was rushing out of me,
The crushes are Heaven for a sinner like me,
Let the arms of the ocean deliver me.

[Verse 2]

And though the pressures hard to take,
It's the only way I can escape,
It seems a heavy choice to make but now I am under,
And its breaking over me,
A thousand miles to the sea bay,
I've found a place to rest my head.

[Verse 1]

And I had a dream about my old school,
And she was there all pink and gold and glittering,
I threw my arms around her legs,
Came to weeping (Came to weeping),
Came to weeping (Came to weeping),
And I heard your voice as clear as day,
And you told me I should concentrate,
It was oh so strange,
And so surreal that a ghost should be so practical,
Only if for a night.

[Chorus]

And the only solution was to stand and fight,
And my body was loosing all the satellite,
But you came over me like some holy life,
And I know how this works you're the only light,
Only if for a night.

[Verse 2]

And the grass was so green against my new clothes,
And I did cartwheels in your honor,
Dancing on tiptoes my own secret ceremonials,
Before the service began,
In the graveyard doing handstands,
And I heard you voice as clear as day,

Time it took us
To where the water was
That's what the water gave me
And time goes quicker
Between the two of us
Oh, my love, don't forsake me
Take what the water gave me

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow

And oh poor Atlas
The world's a beast of a burden
You've been holding on a long time
And all this longing
And the ships are left to rust
That's what the water gave us

So lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow

'Cause they took your loved ones
But returned them in exchange for you
But would you have it any other way?
Would you have it any other way?
You could have had it any other way

Florence + The Machine
Bird Song

Well I didn't tell anyone
But a bird flew by
Saw what I done
He set up a nest outside
And he sang about what I've become
He sang so loud
Sang so clear
I was afraid all the neighbors would hear
So I invited him in just to reason with him
I promised I wouldn't do it again

But he sang louder and louder inside the house
And I couldn't get him out
So I trapped him under a cardboard box
Stood on it to make it stop
Picked up the bird and above the dim
I said "That's the last song you'll ever sing"
Held him down broke his neck
Taught him a lesson he wouildn't forget

Then in my dreams began to creep
That old familiar
"Tweet, Tweet, Tweet"

I opened my mouth to scream and shout
I waved my arms and flapped about
But I couldn't scream and I couldn't shout

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that carried me
The sigh that blew me forward

(Chorus)
Because it was trapped
Trapped between two lungs
it was trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs

And my running feet could fly
Each breath sceaming
"We're all too young to die"

Btween two lungs it was released
The breath that passed from you to me
That flew between us as we slept
That slipped from your mouth into mine it krept
(x2)

Because it was trapped
Trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs

Now all the days of begging
The days of theft
No more gasping for a breath
The air has filled me head-to-toe
And i can see the ground far below
I have this breath and I hold it tight
And I keep it in my chest with all my might

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord I just don't care"
But you've got the love I need To see me through

Sometimes it seems that the going is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
Now and then it seems that life is just too much
But you've got the love I need to see me through

When food is gone you are my daily meal
When friends are gone I know my savior's love is real
Your love is real

You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love

Time after time I think "Oh Lord what's the use?"
Time after time I think it's just no good
Sooner or later in life, the things you love you loose
But you got the love I need to see me through

You got the love
You got the love

Let’s Go
Everybody wants to be famous,
Nobody wants to be nameless, aimless,
People act shameless
Tryna live like entertainers,
Want a fat crib with the acres,
So they spend money that they ain’t made yet,
Got a Benz on tik that they ain’t paid yet,
Spend their pay cheque
In the west end on the weekend
Got no money by the end of the weekend.
But they don’t care cause their life is a movie,
Starring Louis V, paid for by yours truly,
Truthfully, it’s a joke, like a bad episode of Hollyoaks,
Can’t keep up with the cover notes,
So they got bad credit livin’ on direct debit in debt
they still don’t get
Cause they too busy livin’ the high life, the night life
Huggin’ the high when livin’ it large
And they all say

Old hope got stuck in your throat,
Wound it's way round your neck caused you to choke.
Old hope made of rope, that held you tight when the chair legs broke.

you said atleast now I don't have to kind nor good.
I'll be cruel and I'll obscene tear out my tongue cause I've been redeemed.

Take my(don't know what she says) or the grave,
no shy glance, no coy restiants, and I wont hang my head,
and I wont repent, wont face the wall and (don't know that one either)

Well they tore you down and they tore out your tongue
and they made you kneel for all the things that you'd done.
but you wouldn't cry, you wouldn't beg,
you just screamed and tore out your teeth instead.

Your songs remind me of swimming,
Which I forgot when I started to sink
Drank further away from the shore,
And deeper into the drink

Sat on the bottom of the ocean,
A stern and stubborn rock
Cos your songs remind me of swimming,
But somehow I forgot

I was sinking, now I'm sunk
And I was drinking, now I'm drunk
I was sinking, now I'm sunk,
And I was drinking, now I'm drunk

I tried to remember the chorus,
I can't remember the verse
Cos that song that sent me swimming,
Is now the life jacket that burst

Rotting like a wreck on the ocean floor,
Sinking like a siren that can't swim no more
Your songs remind me of swimming,
But I can't swim any more

Then all of a sudden, I heard a note,
It started in my chest and ended in my throat
Then I realised I was swimming,
And then I realised I was swimming,
And then I realised I was swimming,

The looking glass so shiny and new
How quickly the glamor fades
I start spinning slipping out of time
Was that the wrong pill to take (Raise it up)
You made a deal and now it seems you have to offer up
But will it ever be enough
(Raise it up raise it up)
It's not enough
(Raise it up raise it up)

Here I am a rabbit hearted girl
Frozen in the headlights
It seems Ive made the final sacrifice

We raise it up this offering
We raise it up

This is a gift it comes with a price
Who is the lamb and who is the knife
Midas is king and he holds me so tight
And turns me to gold in the sunlight

I look around but I can't find you
(Raise it up)
If only I could see your face
(Raise it up)
Instead of rushing towards the skyline
(Raise it up)
I wish that I could just be brave

I must become a lion hearted girl
Ready for a fight

My boy builds coffins with hammers and nails
He doesn't build ships, he has no use for sails
He doesn't make tables, dresses or chairs
He can't carve a whistle cause he just doesn't care

My boy builds coffins for the rich and the poor
Kings and queens them all knocked on his door
Beggars and liars, gypsies and thieves
They all come to him 'cause he's so eager to please

My boy builds coffins he makes them all day
But it's not just for work and it isn't for play
He's made one for himself
One for me too
One of these days he'll make one for you

My boy builds coffins for better or worse
Some say it's a blessing, some say it's a curse
He fits them together in sunshine or rain
Each one is unique, no two are the same

My boy builds coffins and I think it's a shame
That when each one's been made, he can't see it again
He crafts every one with love and with care

When your life is over I won't be sad or bluer
I'll put on my fancy hat, lie down next to you
I'll kiss you once for life; I'll kiss you twice for death
Hold you close for comfort, wearing my best dress

You look so angry when you sleep, your face a troubled frown
So I will smooth your furrowed brow as I lay in the ground
I'll kiss you once for life; I'll kiss you twice for death
I'll hold you close for comfort, wearing my best dress

And as the mourners pass me, I will smile and wave
Thank them for their sympathy and tell them I'll be brave
But once the wake is over, and I'm drunk and feeling fine
I'll go out there and find me another boy to pass the time

As we're dancing cheek to cheek and the lights are laid low
I'll request this song for you, saying into the ground below
Once the song is over, I decide to go to bed
I'll leave him on the dance floor and return to you instead

You smashed a plate over my head

So we remain the same
Love sticks
Sweat drips
Break the lock if it don't fit

A kick to the teeth is good for some
A kiss with a fist is better then none

A kiss with a fist is better then none

I broke your jaw once before
I spilled your blood upon the floor
You broke my leg in return
So sit back and watch the bed burn
Love sticks
Sweat drips
Break the lock if it don't fit

A kiss with a fist is better then none

If you could only see the beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free
Screaming in the dark, I howl when we're apart
Drag my teeth across your chest to taste your beating heart

My fingers claw your skin, try to tempt my way in
You are the moon that makes the night for which I have to howl
My fingers claw your skin, try to tempt my way in
You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to

Howl, howl
Howl, howl

Now there's no rolling back, I'm aching to attack
My blood is singing with your voice, I want to pour it out
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground

Like some child possessed, the beast howls in my breast
I want to find you and tear out all of your tenderness

And howl, howl
Howl, howl

Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers

I was a heavy heart to carry
My beloved was weighed down
My arms around his neck
My fingers laced a crown
I was a heavy heart to carry
My feet dragged across the ground
And he took me to the river
Where he slowly let me drown

My love has concrete feet, my love's an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles, over the waterfall

I'm so heavy. Heavy. Heavy in your arms
I'm so heavy. Heavy. Heavy in your arms

And is it worth the wait,
All this killing time?
Are you strong enough to stand,
Protecting both your heart and mine?
Who is the betrayer
Who's the killer in the crowd?
The one who creeps in corridors
And doesn't make a sound

My love has concrete feet, my love is an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles, over the waterfall

Wrapped around your ankles, over the waterfall

There is love in your body but you can't hold it in
It pours from your eyes and spills from your skin
Tenderest touch leaves the darkest of marks
And the kindest of kisses break the hardest of hearts

The hardest of hearts
The hardest of hearts
The hardest of hearts

There is love in your body but you can't get it out
It gets stuck in your head, won't come out of your mouth
Sticks to your tongue and shows on your face
That the sweetest of words have the bitterest taste

Darling heart, I loved you from the start
But you'll never know what a fool I've been
Darling heart, I loved you from the start
But that's no excuse for the state I'm in

The hardest of hearts
The hardest of hearts
The hardest of hearts

There is love in our bodies and it holds us together
But pulls us apart when we're holding each other
We all want something to hold in the night

Remember those walls I built
Well, baby they're tumbling down
They didn't even put up a fight
They didn't even make a sound

I found a way to let you in
But I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now

It's like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin'
It's the risk that I'm takin'
I ain't never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I'm looking now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you're my saving grace

You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Standing in the light of your halo
Pray it won't fade away

Halo
Halo
Halo
Halo

Hit me like a ray of sun
Shining through my darkest nights
You're the only thing that I want
And I'm addicted to your light

I swore I'd never fall again
But this don't even feel like falling

We sit in the car outside your house
I can feel the heat coming 'round
I go to put my arm around you
And you give me a look like I'm way out of bounds
Well you let out one of your bored sighs
Well lately when I look into your eyes
I'm goin' down

We get dressed up and we go out, baby, for the night
We come home early burning, burning in some fire fight
I'm sick and tired of you setting me up
Setting me up just to knock-a knock-a knock-a me down

I pull you close but when we kiss I can feel a doubt
I remember back when we started
My kisses used to turn you inside out
I used to drive you to work in the morning
Friday night I'd drive you all around
You used to love to drive me wild
But lately girl you get your kicks from just driving me down

She told me not to step on the cracks
I told her not to fuss and relax
Well, her pretty little face stopped me in my tracks
But now she sleeps with one eye open
That's the price she paid

I took a knife and cut out her eye
I took it home and watched it wither and die
Well, she's lucky that I didn't slip her a smile
That's why she sleeps with one eye open
That's the price she paid

I said, hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie
I said, hey, girl with one eye
I'll cut your little heart out cause you made me cry

I slipped my hand under her skirt
I said don't worry, it's not gonna hurt
Oh, my reputation's kinda clouded with dirt
That's why you sleep with one eye open
That's the price you paid

I said, hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie
I said, hey, girl with one eye
I'll cut your little heart out cause you made me cry

I've fallen out of favor and I've fallen from grace
Fallen out of trees and I've fallen on my face
Fallen out of taxis, out of windows too
Fell in your opinion when I fell in love with you

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Sometimes I wish for falling, wish for the release
Wish for falling through the air to give me some relief
Because falling's not the problem, when I'm falling I'm at peace
It's only when I hit the ground it causes all the grief

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Whoa-oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

This is a song for a scribbled-down name
And my love keeps writing again and again
This is a song for a scribbled-down name
And my love keeps writing again and again
And again and again and again and again
And again and again and again and again
And again and again and again and again
And again and again and again and again

There's a drumming noise inside my head
That starts when you're around
I swear that you could hear it
It makes such an all mighty sound

There's a drumming noise inside my head
that throws me to the ground
I swear that you should hear it
It makes such an all mighty sound

Louder than sirens
Louder than bells
Sweeter than heaven
And hotter than hell

I ran to a tower where the church bells chime
I hoped that they would clear my mind
They left a ringing in my ear
But that drum's still beating loud and clear

Louder than sirens
Louder than bells
Sweeter than heaven
And hotter than hell

Louder than sirens
Louder than bells
Sweeter than heaven
And hotter than hell

Louder than sirens
Louder than bells
Sweeter than heaven
And hotter than hell

As I move my feet towards your body

Happiness hit her like a train on a track
Coming towards her stuck still no turning back
She hid around corners and she hid under beds
She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
With every bubble she sank with her drink
And washed it away down the kitchen sink

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming
So you better run

Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your loving, your loving behind
You cant carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
'Cause here they come

And i never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had and what was left after that too, oh
Happiness hit her like a bullet in the head
Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that

A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
So darkness I became

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight

Seems that I have been held in some dreaming state
A tourist in the waking world, never quite awake
No kiss, no gentle word could wake me from this slumber
Until I realized that it was you who held me under

Felt it in my fist, in my feet, in the hollows of my eyelids
Shaking through my skull, through my spine and down through my ribs

No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone
No more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong one

And I could hear the thunder and see the lightning crack
All around the world was waking, I never could go back
'Cause all the walls of dreaming, they were torn wide open
And finally it seemed that the spell was broken

And all my bones began to shake, my eyes flew open

As i commited my crimes in a darkened room
A bird flew by, and saw what i'd done it set up a nest outside
And he sang about what i'd become
He sang so loud
He sang so clear
I was afraid all the neighbours would hear
So i invited him in, to reason with him
I promised i wouldn't do it again
But he sang louder and louder inside the house
And now i couldn't get him out
So I trapped him under a cardboard box
And stood on it to make him stop
I picked up the bird and above the dim i said
"That's the last song you'll ever sing"
Held him down, broke his neck
Taught him a lesson he wouldn't forget

Then i put that bird in a cooking pot
Boiled him up and ate the lot
Then i sat in the silence
Thanked the lord for peace
Coughed up a feather and fell asleep
But in my dreams began to creep
that old familiar tweet tweet tweet

I opened my mouth to scream and shout

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that captured me
The sigh that blew me forward

Because it was trapped
Trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs

And my running feet could fly
Each breath screaming: "We are all too young to die!"

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that passed from you to me
That flew between us as we slept
That slipped from your mouth into mine
It crept between two lungs
It was released
The breath that passed from you to me
That flew between us as we slept
That slipped from your mouth into mine
It crept

Because it was trapped
Tapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs

Now all the days of begging
The days of theft
No more gasping for a breath
The air has filled me head-to-toe
And I can see the ground far below

Are you hurting the one you love?
You say you've found Heaven but you can't find God.
Are you hurting the one you love?
Bite your tongue till it tastes like blood.

Are you hurting the one you love?
So many glasses on the tabletop.
Are you hurting the one you love?
You'd like to stay in heaven but the rules are too tough.

Tough,
It's just too tough.
Tough,
It's just too tough.

Are you hurting the one you love?
When they watched the walls, and the ticking clock.
Are you hurting the one you love?
And was it something you could not stop.

Could not stop.
Stop,
Could not stop.
Stop,
Could not stop.
Stop,
Could not stop.
Stop,
Could not stop.

Are you hurting the one you love?
When you leave them sleeping on the hollow ground.
Are you hurting the one you love?
And lost for themselves.

These are the lyrics to florence and the machine cosmic love. Enjoy!
