Letís talk about magic. Because music, at its best, is a kind of magic that lifts you up and takes you somewhere else. ďI want my music to sound like throwing yourself out of a tree, or off a tall building, or as if youíre being sucked down into the ocean and you canít breathe,Ē says Florence Welch. ďItís something overwhelming and all-encompassing that fills you up, and youíre either going to explode with it, or youíre just going to disappear.Ē Florence writes her best songs when sheís drunk or has a hangover, because thatís when the freedom, the feral music comes, creating itself wildly from the fragments gathered in her notebooks and in her head. ďYouíre lucid,Ē she explains, ďbut youíre not really there. Youíre floating through your own thoughts, and you can pick out what you need. I like those weird connections in the universe. I feel that lifeís like a consistent acid trip, those times when things keep coming back.Ē Florence herself is a mass of contradictions: sheís tough yet sheís terrified, a bundle of nerves and passion, of darkness and pure joy. ďI feel things quite intensely, which is why the music has to be so intense. Iím either really sad or really happy, Iím tired or completely manic. Thatís when Iím at my most creative, but itís also dangerous for me. I feel I could write some good songs, or break some hearts. Or tables. Or glasses.Ē

As a performer she can seem fearless, but sheís also far too quick to pass judgement on herself. This is the woman, after all who got into Camberwell art college by making a huge floral sign telling herself ĎYou are a twat.í She says sheís a geek, who loses all control when in love. Sheís also something increasingly rare and precious in a time of karaoke pop: an artist who has found her own, authentic voice. Her soaring, epic vocals, quirky melodies and self-contained musical world have already won her the 2009 Critics Choice Award at the Brits. Some compare her to Kate Bush. Youíll also find touches of Tom Waits and Nick Cave in her dark visions, and if you heard a little of Bjork too, sheíd find it a compliment. But mainly, Florence is out on her own: an exhilarating place to be, she points out, but also a little scary. Her debut album ĎLungsí is made of harps, choirs, drums, elevator shafts, bits of metal, love, death, fireworks, string quartets, stamping, sighing, strange electronic wailing, lambs, lions, sick, broken glass, blood, moon, stars, drink, coffins, teeth, water, wedding dresses.. and the silences in between. The songs are full of Gothic imagery, of fairytale flights of fantasy, and although much has been read into her lyrics, Florence says itís usually simple. ďEverything is about boys!Ē she laughs. ďThe whole album is about love Ė and pain. People see my lyrics as crazy, but to me itís an honest, heartfelt album. I didnít set out to be wacky. I just want it to be emotive.Ē Florence grew up in Camberwell, south London, the oldest of three children. One of her earliest musical memories is standing on top of the trunk where her dad kept his vinyl collection, dancing with him to the Rolling Stones. She started singing along to Nina Simone and Dusty Springfield at home, expanded her vocal range with arias, then became a pre-teen skatepunk before getting lost in the Camberwell art college squat party scene. Itís an eclectic mix, but for her, the common thread is always the emotion. ďAnything that has real feeling in it always excites me. Sam Cookeís ĎA Change is Going To Comeí, Eva Cassidy singing ĎWade In The Waterí, even Rhiannaís ĎUmbrellaí Ė Iím obsessed with music. Iíll play Beyonce, Lil Wayne, Bob Dylanís ĎHurricaneí, Bruce Springsteenís ĎGoing Downí.

Florence found her own space by going out to clubs and pubs, by singing onstage and in her bedroom. By the time she left school, sheíd already written songs like ĎKiss With A Fistí, and knew she wanted to make music but not how to go about it. So after a year working behind a bar she went to art school, making tents under the desk to sleep off her hangovers while trying to convince her tutors she was an installation. It wasnít until she wrote the haunting ĎBetween Two Lungsí that it all came together. Instead of percussion, Florence pounded the studio walls with her hands. She built the melody on the piano even though itís not an instrument she knows how to play, and recorded the backing vocals first, before writing the top line. Itís bonkers and totally unconventional, but of course it is also glorious Ė a strange but yearning song about losing yourself in love. ďIíd found my voice, and I just felt euphoric,Ē she recalls. ďItís been a real process of me learning that the way I wanted to do it was actually the right way. This whole album has been about having faith in myself.Ē As for The Machine, itís a flexible beast. It can go right down to Florence and a drum kit or a piano, but right now itís a seven-piece band including long-term collaborators Rob Ackroyd (guitar), Chris Hayden (drums), Isabella Summers (keyboards) and Tom Monger (harp). ďIíve worked with most of them for a long time and they know my style, know the way I write, they know what I want.Ē Live, Florence and The Machine become an entirely different beast. No two performances are ever alike, and clad in clothes often culled from local second-hand shops that day, Florence goes at it like a woman possessed. ďItís just this sense of total freedom,Ē she says. ďIt sounds so cheesy, but I want to touch people. Not in a weird way. I just want to help them feel what Iím feeling.Ē

Plans

A New Year's Anxiety

It's seconds before the new years
No clouds to block your forward vision
Everything's how it appears
You've fucked your nut with friends under boundless conditions
Seconds later
Unfortunately it clicks
Promises made
Boxes to tick
Clean slate only means you're doing the shit you
Stifled on the last one

Now you know the truth you hide in fear of this confession
Hide behind the drugs you take and run the wrong direction
All the plans you break you made at will to you discretion
Just wait will it blows

Plans
It depends what they're made from
And
If they're made from the strong stuff
We
Can be man one depends on
Or
Become undone by the same bluff
It's
Another road block my name's on
It's
Another plan made to go wrong
But
I'll never quit while the days long
No
Just wait until it blows

The best laid plans of mice and men
Afghan agley
Scribe my thoughts with bloody pen
And still find them washed away.
Wouldn't mind my life with plans and some sense
for a least a day.
Or,
Just wait until it blows!

Seconds later...

Lean From The Middle

So you think that you're right and you're original
So you think that you're tight
But you're a typical cynical individual whimsical
To the take
But never give at all
You're fucking miserable ways are going to kill us all
But now I'm the cynic
And
Your best response to this shit is
Is it
In it I give a moral
You fucking bin it
Been there, done that
But sorry geez I live in it
And I understand the complexities within it
The whole thing is
Do as I say not what I do
I don't think I care that much to follow through
So join the queue
Fuck that shit
I'll follow you

But don't you think that you're big because you're dependable
Or is it something you like just being sensible
Constable cool
Logic to the rule
Frowning aloud at the clowning around of a fool

Life can be so damn fine
If you let loose a little
Pressure builds up inside
We must escape the middle
Escape through both extremes
Deep dreams to hallucinogenic riddles
My way seeks no ways peace
Like I said
We all lean from the middle

Soul-searchers and Shadow-lurkers
Two side of the white line
Giving the last respects to my city before it unwinds
Peoples
Who are trying to be better that equals put the pressure up
Battles
People shaking their rattles and putting flags up
The federals are
Cowards abusing the power for the people to stand up
Because time and time again
The people who are right are put in a round up
Their theories are bound up
So fuck my rights

I'm tearing the ground up
The big and the bad
the bold, the best
They're taking control of the situation
Blunt knifes will help you confess
You try to run and just like the rest
They're taking their guns
Filling them with arms
And will a boom!
Taking out your chest

I'm making a statement
And paving my way through time
Rhymes are just a medium
Lives are on the line
If you relate the things that you see
To the things that you think
You might be overwhelmed by the stench of the city stink
Supposedly our race is enlightened
By that alone
Shit!! I'm frightened
I double dare any fucker who wants to put that in writing

The clouds are swelling
Thunderstorms are dwelling
Electrical static tension's inventing lightening provisions
This is pre-superstition
They're day to day fucking vision
Ashok is for telling division
Resulting in blood collisions
What
Ninety five open your eyes and realize
That people die and people leave their lives living lies
But...

Sunday

Started on the Sunday
Afternoon
My heart is playing that same old tune
Birds are singing on my heart
And I'm felling the same way again
And I just don't know why I can't keep these feelings off my mind
There's Something about you

Started on a Sunday afternoon

And you came and you stopped me from crying
I want to thank you
I want to thank you
I want to thank you

Started on a Sunday afternoon

And I just know why I can't keep thinking of you all the time
there's something wrong with my mind

And it's sunday afternoon and I don't know what to do about you

Radix

Seek to find your mentor
Styrofoam people made up by inventors
Add a little heat and crack up under pressure
Cold as on old bone a Napoleonic gesture
Alone with a dial tone
Splitting alone at the fork tongue
Sinners and no-goers are divides against the chosen young
Roll with the horn blowers and slow-a-ways with the pollen bun
And sweet old Charis
Cherish these moments of stolen fun or tumble and perish
'Cos troubles up at the lobby for stiff pricks and
Dry jokes you know
Rebellion doubles up when they sun it up and they finally know
Troubles up at the very top of the slimy slope
A to b straight-line liars in shiny coats

Money, money, money, money is an Ism
Money, money said it is, said it isn't
Money, money, money, money is an Ism
Stop chasing stars
Radix malorum est cupiditas

Sorted out in systems
The paper people
Slamming the cold choke of resemblance
Of stats and facts
Compared to the feeling of a heartbeat
It's about as true as a cold dew touching your
Rubber shoe or your bare feet
You're banging on resistance
And so you should
'Cos soon they'll buckle up and listen
I said they would
For never a moment changed positions
Force your decision
Because the wind blows in the way that fate chose your mission
Think slow
But never sink low to submission
The kink slows in the strongest armour in the kingdom
In the deep rows of perfection sowed
Reaped and endless
Amounts of senses that by consensus

Are senseless
End of point end of fucking sentence
End of joint end of my repentance
All can join in the motion for acceptance

Money, money, money, money is an Ism
Money , money said it is, said it isn't
Money, money, money, money is an ism
Stop chasing stars

I hate the way that you're worth more in places
You want to exploit
Can't I trade my bowl of soup for your professional viewpoint

Franky Boy

I can't white for shit these days
It seems I'm slowing
I was knocked out by a fucked up day
And I'm nowhere going
My head hurts and a flash back flirts with
A numbing feeling
That life ain't taken happy away so it's time it's stealing
So I rock back
And rack up my balls to break my reeling
Coded
I'm stuck till I'm dead so death is healing
I've been in a terrible state of introspection
Locked inside the shell of myself by life's deception

It takes time to develop a life you like,
Statistics will lie
Finding a balance will shed a new light on
The greatest of lies
Existing for nothing but kissing and hugging
Could be that you're a pilling and fucking
Could be that you're digging a hole for the brother
Who never could handle his function

From farcical fiends and set backs
To magical dreams and jet packs
We're splitting the seams and wandering free of
The feeling we're nothing but hard facts
Flesh, bones, blood and sinew
We'll all continue
To rumble and rage and shatter the cage that we're all born intro

So take time to be nice
And live life to the full
Sometimes it1s hard life and sometimes it's cool
Be strong it's not long before my friends you'll see
That power is the mind and knowledge is the key

I've made mistakes but none of them paid for
I've got karma running after me paybacks that I'm late for
I'm far from harmony and I know that I'd be grateful
If someone harder that me
Would shake the hurt out of me
Would tell me how life should be
But no one's up for the task
They know that kids of today are growing up too fast
They know the theory on play is bolting up the past
With all the things that they've seen
And all the broken dreams
It's harder to think that breathe

So what do you think that we do
We trouble and manage a moment to hold up and
Think it through
With the old adage of having had no love ou luck to boot
Some of the peeps on this planet are gold dust and
Honey dew

No thanks to you

So take time to be nice
And live life to the full
Sometimes it1s hard life and sometimes it's cool
Be strong it's not long before my friends you'll see
That power is the mind and knowledge is the key

I deliberately rolled up with my face on
Perceptionís the power that be, but I prove my point
With my patience
I'm fickle for vanity
And I've found a voice for the vacant
Part of my mentality
When I tell you I don't give a fuck if I see you eyeing me
I'm not telling you how you should be
I'm telling you strictly that there's more to this life than you see
The book and the cover
Uncover and hear how reality breathers
Simplistically rhythmic
It's rhythm encrypted
No beat is a misfit

Always Ashok

Up for fun
Up for pleasant changes
Down to volatile fucks with brains in cages
Up for good conversations
Up for saying I'm not lazy I'm just patient

Down to grumpy sound techs at sound checks
Up for "Ashok'd in town", please the crowd sets
Chris and Luke are the sound creeds are due
Let me tilt my respects to the peeps in the room

Just live and breathe together
This too will pass nothing lasts forever
All please perceive this motive
The world is hopeless without happiness

Seeking our pleasure
Leisurely working on songs
Get together and see what the vibe raises
This all depends on the girls and the geez
That you're among
Ashok's amongst the best in the world for this
King of status

We've come along to say
To prove to you Ashok's about music
We pass along the days
Gagging for someone who doesn't go and abuse it
Think this thought when you breathe
Would you know you were breathing without feeling it
Think this through and you'll see
Ashok's applying is nature upon its music

Seeking our pleasure
Leisurely working on songs
Get together and see what the vibe raises
This all depends on the girl and the geez you're among
Ashok's amongst the best in the world for this king of status

'Cos you've got crawl before you can walk
And you've got to cry before you can talk
And you've got to scream before you can sing
And you've got to lose before you win
So I'm going to crawl, I'm going to walk, I'm going to cry
I'm going to talk

Seeking our pleasure
Leisurely working on songs
Get together and see what the vibe raises
This all depends on the girl and the geez you're among
Ashok's amongst the best in the world for this king of status

We've come along to say
To prove to you Ashok's about music
We pass along the days
Gagging for someone who doesn't go and abuse it
Think this thought when you breathe
Would you know you were breathing without feeling it
Think this through and you'll see
Ashok's applying is nature upon its music

Seeking our pleasure
Leisurely working on songs
Get together and see what the vibe raises
This all depends on the girl and the geez you're among
Ashok's amongst the best in the world for this king of status

We've come along to say
To prove to you Ashok's about music
We pass along the days
Gagging for someone who doesn't go and abuse it
Think this thought when you breathe
Would you know you were breathing without feeling it
Think this through and you'll see
Ashok's applying is nature upon its music

Under The Thumb

I used to listen to him sitting on my shoulder
But he's losing my affection
I've fallen for another
He made me do some bad things
but you make me do the worst
He's been around for centuries
But you were still the first
He may have fire and brimstone
All the power in the world
But I'm not trying to impress him
Now that I'm your girl
He says he wants me back
And I don't know what to do
Because I don't need the devil
Now that I've got you

He has so many tricks
But next to you he looks the fool
And it's no longer for him
That I keep on breaking rules
When he told me to take one
You tell me to take four
When he said smash the window
You say break down the door
He sent me pearls and roses
A diamond necklace too
But I don't need the devil now that I got you

We don't need the devil now we've got each other
We don't need the storm when we're making our own thunder
Now we don't need The Reeper we're already six feet under

Well you can pull the trigger
And I will load the gun
You can tie the knot
And I'll make sure that your hung
If you can find the pills,
I will make that bed.
Because I don't need the devil
I've got you instead!

I'm different now
That I was when he was about
I don't know how
but something was lost or damaged at lights out
Something went
It vanished
And was never replaced
Something bent or broke
And now there's nothing but space
Something changed about me
Something crucial
Not my name
Blymes
It was something useful
Fuck the games
Tell me
Was it something beautiful
The dutiful brotherly aspect that was torn
Away of the funeral
I fell halved
I can't explain it
At first I laughed so hard
It locked the pain in
As rain swept
In tandem with the concept of prophetic fallacy
I tried to put into context the extent of the tragedy

But nothing was happening
I guess I was panicking
To get with the plan again
Nothing was rubbing in
I had to stop fumbling
Because there's nothing but trouble in
Rummaging for the truth
When there's nothing more pummelling that the proof
That something as powerful as the 'two'
Could be so easily damaged or even reduced
So where's this leave you now
You're not alone
But you're not the same
And that's the difference in a daily way
Anyway past the trivia lies the main meal
That even a myriad of counterpoints couldn't help reveal
I think in some weird way
This could work out
I'm smiling up, right
And he's smiling back down
But since I'm gravity bound I think
Fuck it
I'm going to move on around
And not forget

So fucking forget about it
It's a different purpose, not a different outfit
Look at me mouth in and pronounce it
Heís my brother
So fucking forget about it
Welcome to Neverland, my myopic elephant
Where you remember benevolence can get you anything
So lucking up is irrelevant

So fucking forget about it

Decadence

Let's get dramatic
Heart-felt and graphic
Sweet smell from dancing girls gone frantic
Symptomatic of rough beat original
No seat
Lifting your feet up no intervals
No sleep
Buzzing from cocaine
Numbing the dull pain that I got from the kid with no name
Now I'm broke and choked up on my eyeballs
Rummage the room for pune and the different viable's
No scruples man stands insatiable
Black or white which puss looks the flavourful Ripe
Red lip, wet type you're craving for
Hey mate, what you waiting for
Red blood males don't entertain bluffing
Wagging our tails some men wait for nothing
Criminals fucking on bail
Ring the bell
Pavlov's dog's are gonna to leave a slug trail

As the female constituency don't make a fool of yourselves
Be proud to use your body
but remember all men are going to wag their tails
And if the man you want is taken and all the plan
You've had have failed
There's a bar at the back full of brooze
To help you choose which one will respond to the bell
There's a bar at the back full of brooze
To help you choose which one will respond to the bell

Agreed! Affirmative
Check the rubber rolls are either firm or ribbed
Each time I learn that a rubber really helps me give
Because with a sleeve on my dick I hardly felt the shit
So I'm a G
Who can make a sensible girl 'gasm
Count the contraction and ride through the spasms
But remember throughout this is rhythm
It starts with the music and ends in the bedroom
Flicking on the bean like a string with a plectrum
Ramming to the beat like a drum and bass section
Many men have different manners of play
Women are a habit a day to some
Some of them say the same to save their name from the label of layman
From the fact that they pay them
It's a shame that they say it then
What's the problem with a Roos' and another hen
It's natural as a liar in the government
What's the problem with a Roos' and another hen
It's natural as a liar in the government

Geri Gigolo

 

You can't call me anytime
I'll be waiting by the phone at the old folks home

I had a mild stroke of genius
She had a heart attack
Wearing the seediest waxed anorak
Smoothing out the creases
Creating balance
Put together a thesis on the life long challenge
Pulling out my penis
The lady screamed
To call me cock heinous
I called her mean, pulled out the green
Smoken the fiend out and told her lean
This ain't the type of light that I lit when I set the scene
You're wearing to many clothes so respect the theme
I know the set not wet but wet's the dream
Let's not upset the techs who select
The beans for this Triple X, direct, sex machine

I like Amphets'. Peps and Textramine
I like fucking with flesh straight
Fresh from street scenes
I'm a man of obscene ventures
I'll fuck the the old lady so hard so guard you're dentures
I'm highly aroused by independent pensioners
The stinky stench of wenches widget on benches
I'll guard the old puddie' from bullies and dark hunches
And keep on stickling until my thirst quenches
I have a right mind to dig motes and trenches
Build a picket sign scribed with two lines
The bag-of-bone remains of my geriatric adventures
No photographic flashes or moral clashes or lectures

They call me the Geri-Gigolo
I don't sell drugs but I do love the old
My diamond studded cross charms believers
Playing menopauses into conceivers
Cracking the frost, giving them fevers
I'll preach the second coming to the drumming of the beavers
Get some yummy grand mummy loving dick-eaters
Instead of those you-no-stop-go-dick teasers

You can call me anytime
I'll be waiting by the phone at the old folks home

There are two ways to picture your self
The best or worst, the last or first
The lucky as fuck or the one who's cursed
Any situation facing us it's instantaneous
The worst-thing-that-can-happen and future are simultaneous
The brainiest will even conform to the simple sameness
When broken down the logic abounds with pounds of genius
Hear me out: the tactical nemesis isn't a fall out
It's invented with the greatest invention to bring your all out but

Religion has abused the position for fucking centuries
Hell eternal, flames infernal await sinner's entries
Fuck what you think you might know
Because I'm oblivious
Starting with that heaven and hell shit, you serious
If god's such a fucking fair guy, all nice all kind
Then there can't be an eternal hell
For a finite crime
What I want to know is what part you made up because
Christianity ficked up from day dot
Was it the part

Where you scammed the layman for food and taxes
Consequentially invent the classiest axis
Or the part where you starved the hard up of education
Consequentially
Cement the segregation
Fuck what you think might know because I'm above it all
As culpable as cardinals fucked on coke at carnivals
And fuck what you think you might know because
We're original
Systematically fucker off with pope-like, criminals

You cant call me anytime
I'll be waiting by the phone at the old folks home

They call me the Geri-Gigolo
I don't sell drugs but I do love the old
My diamond studded cross charms believers
Playing menopauses into conceivers
Cracking the frost, giving them fevers
I'll preach the second coming to the drumming of the beavers

Get some yummy grandmummy loving dick-eaters
Instead of those you-no-stop-go
Dick teasers

Slow Tune

When you told me I looked lovely
And we walked into the park
Something started on that day
Something happened to my heart, something strange
It was a quiet rain that fell upon your face
And I knew then that I had won the losing race
The losing race

Nothing was strange
Nothing was simple or permanent nothing had changed
Up in the firmament
Love was determined to come down and make its name
The prodigal choice, love is the voice
That fans the flame, that burns away and shoot to fame
And in its place
It shaped a face
Blinds your mind in some temporal stasis
All the while trying to figure out
Trying to figure
Who the face is
You just want in to be mine

There's a rose on the table
It's been there for a while
It's the last thing you gave me

Simple as that
Divine is the word
Young is the mind
Sin of the logo
You never know when you just
Don't know
The power's so potent
You're in love
With the word love and know it fits in to the moment

It's the last thing you gave me

You could be right
This could be love at the fist sight
But just because it exists, it's not your birthright
If the problem persists it could be a cursed night
Let the smiles of the present dictate the presence of heavenly pleasantries
And the let laughter live long along the cosy breeze

I would love to live in a moment
A wandering Ronin
Running around in a freeze frame of a moment stolen
A swollen memory
I'd love to tuck up and sleep in it
I want to believe in it
That happiness is eternal
It won't just recede and quit
It must supersede the shit
Can't crumble and bleed to bits
There's something of beauty in every one man's smile
I'm willing to plead my wits

Not wanting scene to change
I've planted my seeds of pain
Them and the greenery
Intravenously cleaning up in my veins
Not wanting the feeling to go

But as the wind blows

So much this world keep on turning

Happy Slap

You hit me once, I hit you back
You gave a kick, I gave a slap
You smashed a plate over my head
Then I set fire to our bed

My black eye casts no shadow
Your red eye sees no pain
Your slaps don't stick
Your kicks don't hit
So we remain the same

Blood sticks, sweat drips
Break the lock if it don't fit

A kick in the teeth is good for some
A kiss with a fist is better than none

I broke your jaw once before
I spilled your blood upon the floor
You broke my leg in return
So let's sit back and watch the bed burn

So kiss me with your broken jaw
I'll hold you like I did before, darling
And holding hands together
We'll wage a little war, a little war

I'll break your feet so you can't sleep
I'll break your teeth so you can't eat
Keep you up at night always ready for a fight

You broke my feet so I couldn't sleep
You broke my teeth so I couldn't eat
Keep me up at night Always ready, ready, ready for a fight

Lungs

Dog Days Are Over

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 and loving behind
You canít carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses
Because 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 back
Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses
Because here they come

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

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses
Because here they come

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

Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)

The looking glass, so shiny and new
How quickly the glamour 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 I've 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
Before I make 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

Raise it up, raise it up
Raise it up, raise it up

And in the spring I shed my skin
And it blows away with the changing wind
The waters turn from blue to red
As towards the sky I offer it

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

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

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

This is a gift

I'm Not Calling You A Liar

I'm not calling you a liar
Just don't lie to me
I'm not calling you a thief
Just don't steal from me
I'm not calling you a ghost
Just stop haunting me
And I love you so much
I'm gonna let you
Kill me

There's a ghost in my lungs
And it sighs in my sleep
Wraps itself around my tongue
As it softly speaks
Then it walks, then it walks with my legs

To fall, to fall, to fall, at your feet
Though but for the grace of god go on
And when you kiss me I'm happy enough to die

I'm not calling you a liar
Just don't lie to me
And I love you so much
I'm gonna let you
I'm not calling you a thief
Just don't
And I love you so much
I'm gonna let you
Oh I'm not calling you a ghost
Just don't

There's a ghost in my mouth
And it talks in my sleep,
Wraps itself around my tongue
As it softly speaks
Then it walks, then it walks
Then it walks with my legs

To fall, to fall, to fall
To fall, to fall, to fall at your feet
Oh but for the grace of God go I
And when you kiss me, I'm happy enough

Howl

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 veins
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
Starts so soft and sweet and turns them into hunters
Hunters, hunters, hunters
Hunters, hunters, hunters

The fabric of your flesh, pure as a wedding dress
Until I wrap myself inside your arms I cannot rest
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground

And howl

Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers
Starts so soft and sweet and turns them into hunters

A man who's pure of heart and says his prayers by night
May still become a wolf when the autumn moon is bright

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
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground

Kiss With A Fist

You hit me once
I hit you back
You gave a kick
I gave a slap
You smashed a plate
Over my head
Then I set fire to our bed

You hit me once
I hit you back
You gave a kick
I gave a slap
You smashed a plate
Over my head
Then I set fire to our bed

My black eye casts no shadow
Your red eye sees no pain
Your slaps don't stick
Your kicks don't hit
So we remain the same
Blood sticks and
Sweat drips
Break the lock if it don't fit
A kick in the teeth is good for some
A kiss with a fist is better than none
A-woah a kiss with a fist is better than none

Broke your jaw once before spilt your blood upon the floor
You broke my leg in return
Sit back and watch the bed burn
Well love sticks sweat drips
Break the lock if it don't fit
A kick in the teeth is good for some
A kiss with a fist is better than none
A-woah a kiss with a fist is better than none

You hit me once
I hit you back
You gave a kick
I gave a slap
You smashed a plate over my head
Then I set fire to our bed

You hit me once
I hit you back
You gave a kick
I gave a slap
You smashed a plate over my head
Then I set fire to our bed

Girl With One Eye

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

You made me cry
You made me cry
You made me cry

I said, hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out of my pie
I said, hey, girl with one eye
Get your filthy fingers out my pie

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

Drumming Song

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

Thereís 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 drumís 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
I can hear this beat it fills my head up
And gets louder and louder
It fills my head up and gets louder and louder

I run to the river and dive straight in
I pray that the water will drown out the din
But as the water fills my mouth
It couldnít wash the echoes out
But as the water fills my mouth
It couldnít wash the echoes out

I swallow the sound and it swallows me whole
Till thereís nothing left inside my soul
As empty as that beating drum
But the sound has just begun

As I move my feet towards your body
I can hear this beat it fills my head up
And gets louder and louder
It fills my head up and gets louder and louder

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

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

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
I can hear this beat it fills my head up
And gets louder and louder
It fills my head up and gets louder and louder

Between Two Lungs

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that carried 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
I have this breath and I hold it tight
And I keep it in my chest with all my might
I pray to god this breath will last
As it pushes past my lips
As I...

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that passed from you to me

Cosmic Love

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
In the shadow of your heart

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

My Boy Builds Coffins

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

My boy builds coffins for the rich and the poor
Kings and Queens they've 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 itís a blessing, some say itís 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 ones been made, he can't see it again
He crafts every one with love and with care
Then it's thrown in the ground it just isn't fair

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

Hurricane Drunk

No walls
Can keep me protected
No sleep
Nothing inbetween me and the rain
And you can't save me now
I'm in the grip of a hurricane
I'm gonna blow myself away

I'm going out
I'm gonna drink myself to death
And in the crowd
I see you with someone else
I brace myself
Cause I know it's going to hurt
But I like to think at least things can't get any worse

No home
I don't want shelter
No calm
Nothing to keep me from the storm
And you can't hold me down
'Cause I belong to the hurricane
It's gonna blow us all away

I'm going out
I'm gonna drink myself to death
And in the crowd
I see you with someone else
I brace myself
Cause I know it's going to hurt
But I like to think at least things can't get any worse

I hope that you see me
Cause I'm staring at you
But when you look over
You look right through
Then you lean and kiss her on the head
And I never felt so alive, and so dead

I'm going out
I'm gonna drink myself to death
And in the crowd
I see you with someone else
I brace myself
Cause I know it's going to hurt
I'm going out, woah-oh-o

I'm going out
I'm gonna drink myself to death
And in the crowd
I see you with someone else,
I brace myself
Cause I know it's going to hurt
I'm going out, woah-oh-o
I'm going out, woah-oh-o
I'm going o-o-o-o-o-o-out
I'm going out, woah-oh-o
I'm going out

Blinding

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 realise 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 world

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

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

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 world

Snow White's stitching up the circuit boards
Synapse slipping through the hidden door
Snow White's stitching up the circuit board

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 world

Snow White's stitching up the circuit boards
Synapse slipping through the hidden door
Snow White's stitching up the circuit board
Synapse slipping through the hidden door

You've Got The Love

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 saviour's love is real
Your love is real

You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love

Time after time I think oh Lord whatís the use
Time after time I think itís 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've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
ĎCause 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

You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love

Ceremonials

Only If For A Night

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

And I heard your voice
As clear as day
And you told me I should concentrate
It was all so strange
And so surreal
That a ghost should be so practical
Only if for a night
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And the only solution was to stand and fight
And my body was loose and I was set alight
But she came over me like some holy right
And although I was burning, you're the only light
Only if for a night

In the grass was so green
Against my new clothes
And I did cartwheels in your honour
Dancing on tiptoes
My own secret ceremonials
Before the service began
In the graveyard doing handstands

And I heard your voice
As clear as day
And you told me I should concentrate
It was all so strange
And so surreal
That a ghost should be so practical
Only if for a night

And the only solution was to stand and fight
And my body was loose and I was set alight
But she came over me like some holy right
And although I was burning, you're the only light
Only if for a night

Madam, my dear, my day
Tell me what all this sayings about
Tell me what all this sayings about

And I heard your voice
As clear as day
And you told me I should concentrate
It was all so strange
And so surreal
That a ghost should be so practical
Only if for a night

Only if for a nightÖ

Shake It Out

Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play

And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues drawn
It's always darkest before the dawn

And I've been a fool and I've been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I'm always dragging that horse around

All of his questions, such a mournful sound
Tonight I'm gonna bury that horse in the ground
'Cause I like to keep my issues drawn
But it's always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, oh woah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, oh woah
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I'm gonna cut it out and then restart
'Cause I like to keep my issues drawn
It's always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, oh woah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, oh woah
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah

And it's hard to dance with the devil on your back
Given half the chance would I take any of it back
It's a fine romance but it's left me so undone
It's always darkest before the dawn

Oh woah, oh woah...

And I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't
So here's to drinks in the dark at the end of my rope
And I'm ready to suffer and I'm ready to hope
It's a shot in the dark aimed right at my throat
'Cause looking for heaven, found a devil in me
Looking for heaven, found a devil in me
But what the hell, I'm gonna let it happen to me

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, oh woah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, oh woah
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, oh woah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, oh woah
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah

What the hell

What The Water Gave Me

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 up a long time
And all this longing
And the ships are left to rust
That's what the water gave us
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
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 couldn't have it any other way

'Cause she's a crueller mistress
And the bargain must be made
But oh, my love, don't forget me
When I let the water take 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

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

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow

Never Let Me Go

Looking up from underneath
Fractured moonlight on the sea
Reflections still look the same to me
As before I went under

And itís peaceful in the deep
A cathedral where you cannot breathe
No need to pray no need to speak
Now I am under all

And itís breaking over me
A thousand miles down to the sea bed
Found the place to rest my head
Never let me go
Never let me go
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
In the crushes of heaven for a sinner like me
But the arms of the ocean delivered me

Though the pressures hard to take
Itís the only way I can escape
It seems a heavy choice to make
And now I am under all

And itís breaking over me
A thousand miles down to the sea bed
Found the place to rest my head
Never let me go
Never let me go

And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
In the crushes of heaven for a sinner like me
But the arms of the ocean delivered me

And itís over
And Iím going under
But Iím not giving up
Iím just giving in

Iím slipping underneath
So cold and so sweet

And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
So sweet and so cold
And all this devotion I never knew at all
In the crushes of heaven for a sinner released
But the arms of the ocean delivered me
Never let me go
Never let me go
Deliver me
Never let me go
Never let me go
Deliver me
Never let me go
Never let me go
Deliver me
Never let me go
Never let me go

And itís over
And Iím going under
But Iím not giving up
Iím just giving in

Iím slipping underneath
So cold and so sweet

Breaking Down

All alone
It was always there you see
And even on my own
It was always standing next to me

I can see it coming from the edge of the room
Creeping in the streetlight
Holding my hand in the pale gloom
Can you see it coming now
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh, I think I'm breaking down again
Oh, I think I'm breaking down

All alone
Even when I was a child
I've always known
There was something to be frightened of

You know that I can see you coming from the edge of the room
Creeping in the streetlight
Holding my hand in the pale gloom
Can you see it coming now

Oh, I think I'm breaking down again
Oh, I think I'm breaking down

All alone
On the edge of sleep
My old familiar friend
Comes and lies down next to me

And I can see you coming from the edge of the room
Smiling in the streetlight
Even with my eyes shut tight
I still see you coming now

Oh, I think I'm breaking down again
Oh, I think I'm breaking down again
Oh, I think I'm breaking down again
Oh, I think I'm breaking down

Lover To Lover

I've been losing sleep
I've been keeping myself awake
I've been wandering the streets
For days and days and days

Oh if Iím row to row
Back to back
Lover to lover
And black to red
But I believe, I believe

Thereís no salvation for me now
No space among the clouds
And I feel Iím heading down
But thatís alright
Thatís alright
Thatís alright
Thatís alright

And Iíve been taking chances
Iíve been setting myself up for the fall
And Iíve been keeping secrets
From my heart and from my soul

Going from row to row,
Back to back,
Lover to lover,
Black to red,

But I believe, I believe
Thereís no salvation for me now
No space among the clouds
And I feel Iím heading down
But thatís alright
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Thatís alright
Thatís alright
Thatís alright

Row to row
Back to back
And lover to lover
And black to red
And row to row
Back to back
And lover to lover

No space among the clouds
And I feel Iím heading down
But thatís alright
Thatís alright
Thatís alright
Thatís alright
Thatís alright
Thatís alright

Row to row
Back to back
And lover to lover
And black to red
And row to row
Back to back
Lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover

No salvation for me now
No salvation for me now
No salvation for me now
No salvation for me now

No Light, No Light

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 night time fear, you are the morning when it's clear
When it's over you're the start, you're my head, you're my heart

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, no light, tell me what you want me to say

Through the crowds I was crying out and
In your place there were a thousand other faces
I was disappearing in plain sight
Heaven help me, I need to make it right
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You want a revelation, you wanna get right
But, it's a conversation, I just can't help tonight
You want a revelation, some kind of resolution
You want a revelation
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, no light, tell me what you want me to say

Would you leave me if I told you what I've done
And would you leave me if I told you what I've become
Because it's so easy to sing it to a crowd
But it's so hard, my love, to say it to you out loud

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, no light, tell me what you want me to say
You want a revelation, you wanna get right
But it's a conversation I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation, some kind of resolution
You want a revelation
You want a revelation, you wanna get right
But it's a conversation I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation, some kind of resolution
Tell me what you want me to say

Seven Devils

Holy water cannot help you 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 criminal

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
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
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

And now all your love will be exorcised
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
It's a symphony

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
Before the day is done
Before the day is done

They can keep me high
'Til I tear the walls
'Til I save your heart
And to take your soul
What have we done
Can it be undone
In the evil's heart
In the evil's soul

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

Heartlines

Oh the river, oh the river, it's running free
And all joy, all the joy it brings to me
But I know it'll have to drown me
Before it can breathe easy

And I've seen it in the flights of birds
I've seen it in you
The entrails of the animals
The blood running through

But in order to get to the heart,
I think sometimes you have to cut through
But you can
You can
You can
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Keep it up, I know you can
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
'Cause I am

Honestly, you're not a sea and land over land
Creepin' and a-crawlin' like the sea over sand
Still I follow heartlines on your hand
This fantasy, this fallacy, this tumbling storm
Echoes of a city that's long overgrown
Your heart is the only place that I call home
Can I be returned
You can
You can
We can

Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Keep it up, I know you can
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand

What a thing to do
Oh whoa oh
What a thing to choose
But no, in some way I'm there with you
Up against the wall on a Wednesday afternoon

Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Keep it up, I know you can
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
'Cause I am

Spectrum

When we first came here
We were cold and we were clear
With no colors in our skin
We were light and paper thin

And when we first came here
We were cold and we were clear
With no colors in our skin
'Til we let the spectrum in

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

And when we come for you
We'll be dressed up all in blue
With the ocean in our arms
Kiss your eyes and kiss your palms
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And when it's time to pray
Dressed up all in grey
With metal on our tongues
And silver in our lungs

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

And when we come back we'll be dressed in black
And you'll scream my name aloud
And we won't eat and we won't sleep
We'll drag bodies from a ground

So say my name
And every color illuminates
And we are shining
And we'll never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
As every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
We are shining
Say my name
Say my name
And we will never be afraid again

All This And Heaven Too

And the heart is hard to translate
It has a language of its own
It talks and turns and courts sighs and present proclamations
In the grand days of great men and the smallest of gestures
And short shallow gasps

But with all my education I canít seem to command it
And the words are all skipping and coming back all damaged
And I will put them back in poetry if I only knew how
I canít seem to understand it
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
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
ĎCause Iíve been scrawling it forever but it never makes sense to me at all

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 I canít seem to command it
And the words are all skipping and coming back all damaged
And I will put them back in poetry if I only knew how
I canít seem to understand it

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
ĎCause Iíve been scrawling it forever but it never makes sense to me at all

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
ĎCause Iíve been scrawling it forever but it never makes sense to me at all

No, words are a language that doesnít deserve such treatment
That all of my stumbling phrases never amounted to anything worth this feeling

All this heaven never could describe such a feeling as Iím here

Words were never so useful Ďtil I was screaming out a language that I never knew existed before

Leave My Body

I'm gonna be released from behind these lines
And I don't care whether I live or die
And I'm losing 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 your past
One grand moment
Is all I ask

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

I don't need a husband, don't need no wife
And don't need the day, I don't need the night
And I don't need the birds let them fly away
And I don't want the clouds, they never seem to stay

I don't want no future
I don't need no past
One grand moment
Is all I ask

I don't want your future
I don't need your past
One grand moment
Is all I ask

I'm gonna leave my body
(Moving up to higher ground)
I'm gonna lose my mind
(History keeps pulling me down)
Said I'm gonna leave my body
(Moving up to higher ground)
I'm gonna lose my, lose my mind
(History keeps pulling me, pulling me down)
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Pulling me down
Pulling me down
Pulling me down
Pulling me, pulling me down

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

Yeah, said I'm gonna leave my body
(Moving up to higher ground)
I'm gonna lose my mind
(History keeps pulling me down)
(Moving up to higher ground)
(History keeps pulling me, pulling me down)

Addicted To Love

( Robert Palmer Cover / Live )

The lights are on, but you're not home
Your mind is not your own
Your heart sweats, your body shakes
Another kiss is what it takes

You can't sleep, you can't eat
There's no doubt, you're in deep
Your throat is tight, you can't breathe
Another kiss is all you need

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You're gonna have to face it
You're addicted to love

You see the signs, but you can't read
You're running at a different speed
You heart beats in double time
Another kiss and you'll be mine, oh

A one track mind
You can't be saved
ĎCause oblivion is all you crave
If there's some left, left for you
And you don't mind if you do

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough,
You're gonna have to face it
Youíre addicted to love

Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love

The lights are on, but you're not home
Your will is not your own
You're heart sweats, your teeth grind
Another kiss and you'll be mine

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You're gonna have to face it
You're addicted to love

Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to loveÖ

All I Want For Christmas Is You

( Live Maida Vale 2008 )

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

Are you hurting the one you love

( Demo and Live )

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 *
Leave them sleeping in the middle of the floor
Are you hurting the one you love
And watch the water fall
Are you hurting the one you love
And if heaven knows then who else does
Are you hurting the one you love
You said you got to heaven, but it wasn't enough

I could not stop
Stop
I could not stop
Stop
I could not stop
Stop
I could not stop
Oh stop
I could not stop

* On the demo, Florence admitted she just mumbled a slur of words that rhymed as she was recording it
On the live song now the lyrics are the one below

Bedroom Hymns

( Ceremonials Deluxe Edition )

This is a good a place to fall as any
We'll build our altar here
Make me your Maria
I'm already on my knees

You had Jesus on your breath
And I caught Him in mine
Sweating out confessions
The undone and the divine

'Cause this is his body, this is his love
Such selfish prayers and I can't enough, oh
Yeah, I can't get enough

Spilt bitter tears, I did this for you
Spilling over the idol, the black and the blue
The sweetest submission, drinking you in
The wine and the women, the bedroom hymns

'Cause this is his body, this is his love
Such selfish prayers and I can't get enough, oh
I can't get enough
Yeah, I can't get enough

I'm not here looking for absolution
Because I've found myself an old solution
I'm not here looking for absolution
Because I've found myself an old solution

This is his body, this is his love
Such selfish prayers, I can't get enough
This is his body, oh, this is his love
Such selfish prayers, I can't get enough

I can't get enough
I can't get enough
Yeah, I can't get enough

Bird Song

Well I didn't tell anyone
But a bird flew by, saw what I had done
He set up a nest outside
And he sang about what I'd become

He sang so loud, sang so clear
I was afraid all the neighbours 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 now I couldn't get him out
So I trapped him under a cardboard box
Stood on it to make him stop

I picked up the bird, and above the din
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

But 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
I couldn't scream and I couldn't shout

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
The song was coming from my mouth

From my mouth
From my mouth
From my mouth...

Breath Of Life

( Snow White And The Huntsman OST )

I was looking for a breath of life
For a little touch of heavenly light
But all the choirs in my head say, no, oh oh

To get a dream of life again
A little vision of the sight at the end
But all the choirs in my head say, no, oh oh

But I would need one more touch
Another taste of heavenly rush
And I believe, I believe it so, oh oh oh

And I would need one more touch
Another taste of divine rush
And I believe, I believe it so, oh oh oh

Whose side am I on
Whose side am I
Whose side am I on
Whose side am I

And the feel of it rushes through me
From my heart down to my legs
But the room is so quiet, oh oh oh

And although I was losing my mind
It was a call that was so sublime
But the room is so quiet, oh oh oh

I was looking for a breath of life
A little touch of heavenly light
But all the choirs in my head say, no, oh oh
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
To get a dream of life again
A little vision of the sight at the end
But all the choirs in my head say, no, oh oh

It's a long way and it's come from paper
And I always say, we should be together
I can see the look, because this song has ended
And if you are gone, I will not be long
(Be long, be long, be long)

And I started to hear it again
But this time it wasn't you
And the room is so quiet, oh oh oh

And my heart is the heart of a life
For the devil to dance again
And the room is too quiet

I was looking for the breath of a life
A little touch of a heavenly life
But all the choirs in my head say no, oh oh

Can't Speak French

( Girls Aloud Cover )

I wait
I wait underneath the covers I lie beside you
And who ever question any crying I do?
My heavy heart is beating out of rhythm each time inside you
And I fall a little harder everytime that I do

But you're living it up
You totally
Got me stuck in a rut
You're made for me
How am I gonna step up
To say to you
I got the feeling, boy, I want you, want you

The conversation is tough
Because you're totally
Walking round all the stuff
You wanna say to me
Words are never enough
Oh baby, you turn my dust to gold

I can't speak French so I let the music do the talking talking now
I can't speak French so I let the music do the talking, oh oh oh
Oh, I can't speak French so I let the music do the talking talking now
I'm in deep friend so I let the music do the talking

I gotta let you know
I wanna give into my temptation
And let my feelings show
I gotta let you know-oh

I gotta let you know
I wanna give into my temptation
Let my feelings show
I gotta let you know-oh-oh-oh

I can't speak French ho ooh oh how oh oh
I can't speak French so I...talking now
I can't speak French so I let the music do the talking talking now
I can't speak French so I let the funky music do the talking

I can't speak French so I let the music do the talking talking now
I'm in deep friend so I let the music do the talking
I can't speak French so I let the music do the talking talking now
I can't speak French so I let the music do the talking
I can't speak French so I let the music do the talking talking now
I'm in deep friend so I let the music do the talking
Oh Oh Oh
I can't speak French oh oh oh oh...

Donkey Kosh (a.k.a Little Donkey)

( Florrible and Misrabella )

With a donkey on my shoulder
And a jackal on my back
I'll carry these, my children
Keep them safe from attack

The donkey makes it hard to dance, the jackal sings too loud
The donkey cries when it's alone, and the jackal is too proud

Little donkey is getting restless
Getting heavier as it grows
And the jackal, spoiled and spiteful
Keeps biting at my nose

I would have a lover
A husband, and a child
But the donkey is too jealous
And the jackal is too wild

It's too wild

You ask me why I keep them
Why I love them so
Why they get away with murder
As they grow and grow and grow, oh

I keep them 'cause I made them
They come from in my heart
With each mistake I make
Creative, and torn apart

And when it's time to feed them
Before they go to bed
I give them my confessions
Baked within their bread

Little donkey is getting restless
Getting heavier as it grows
And the jackal, spoiled and spiteful
Keeps biting at my nose

Little donkey is getting restless
Getting heavier as it grows
And the jackal, spoiled and spiteful
Keeps biting at my nose

Not Fade Away

( Buddy Holly cover - Rave on Buddy Holly LP )

I'm gonna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
I wanna love you night and day
Know my love not fade away
You know my love will not fade away

My love is bigger than a Cadillac
I try to show it and you drive me back
Your love for me got to be real
For you to know just how I feel

A love for real'll not fade away
A love for real'll not fade away

I'm gonna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
A love to last more than one day
ĎCause a love for real won't fade away
Well love is love and not fade away

I'm gonna show you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
A love to last more than one day
Cause love is love and not fade away
Love is love and not fade away
Yes love is love and not fade away
Love is love and not fade away

Love is love not
Love is love and not fade away
Love is love not
Love is love and not fade awayÖ

Don't tell me

( I'm not calling you a liar unreleased version )

I'm not calling you a liar
Just don't lie to me
I'm not calling you a thief
Just don't steal from me
I'm not calling you a ghost
Just stop haunting me
I love you so much
That I'm gonna let you kill me

Don't tell me what you've done
Don't tell me what you've done
Don't tell me what you've done

Don't tell me what you've done
Don't tell me what you've done
Don't tell me what you've done

I'm too tired to fight
I'm just gonna lay right here
But I'm too angry to sleep
Without you near
I'm not at home with myself
But I'm not at home with you either
I'm too scared to leave
But I never seem safe here

There's a ghost in my lungs and it sighs in my sleep
Wraps itself around my chest as it softly speaks
Then it walk with my legs with my legs to fall at your feet

There's a ghost in my lungs and it sighs in my sleep
Wraps itself around my chest as it softly speaks
Then it walk with my legs with my legs to fall at your feet

Don't tell me what you've done
Don't tell me what you've done
Don't tell me what you've done

Don't tell me what you've done
Don't tell me what you've done
Don't tell me what you've done

I'm not calling you a liar
Just don't lie to me
And I love you so much
That I'm gonna let you kill me

Fairytale Of New York

( Duet with Billy Bragg )

Billy :
It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me: won't see another one
And then they sang a song
The rare old mountain dew
I turned my face away and dreamed about you
Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
Iíve got a feeling
This yearís for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
Where all our dreams come true

Florence :
They got cars big as bars
They got rivers of gold
But the wind whips right through you
Itís no place for the old
When you first took my hand on a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me Broadway was waiting for me
You were handsome

Billy :
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They yelled out for more
Sinatra was swinging
All the drunks they were singing

Florence :
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night

Florence and Billy :
And the boys from the NYPD choir
Were singing Galway Bay
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

Florence :
Youíre a bum youíre a punk

Billy :
Youíre an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed

Florence :
You scumbag you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray god itís our last

Florence and Billy :
And the boys of the NYPD choir's
Still singing Galway Bay
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

Billy :
I could have been someone

Florence :
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you

Billy :
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Canít make it out alone
Iíve built my dreams around you

Florence and Billy :
And the boys of the NYPD choir's
Still singing Galway Bay
And the bells are ringing out
For Christmas day

Falling

( Lungs Deluxe edition )

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

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

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

I dance with myself, I drunk myself down
Found people to love, left people to drown
I'm not scared to jump, I'm not scared to fall
If there was nowhere to land I wouldn't be scared at all
At all
At all

Fall
Fall

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

Flakes

( Mystery Jets cover / Lungs Limited edition )

This song
Is one I never thought that I'd play
But if you want me gone
There are kinder ways to say
So long than spitting in my face

They don't teach these things at school
They just lay down the rules which are there for you to break
Which are there for you to break

If I'm wrong
Then dust me off and put me in my place
Drop a bomb
Shall you blow me away without even a trace
I'll be gone and I won't give chase

'Cause when you're in pieces,
You pick up the bits, and nothing fits
And the wind blows you away
And the wind blows you away
And the wind blows you away
And the wind blows you away

I pray
There will come a day when I think of you and I smile
These days
Everything seems to last only a while
Remember the names
For the day when we'd have a child

But the trouble with dreams
They're not what they seem, 'cause when you awake
They fall through your fingers in flakes
They fall through your fingers in flakes
They fall through your fingers in flakes
They fall through your fingers in flakes

Galaxy Of The Lost

( Lightspeed Champion Cover )

Hate to think
What would happen if I started to drink like you
Maybe I will loosen up
So pour me another gin

Guzzle down
My neck will burn as we kiss
and I'm sick in your mouth
I know you want more
Lick my open wounds and add some ice
And choke on my sick vice
Oh girl, the lights are on

Trapped in bed
As the poison slowly creeps in and stops me dead
Should have known better
Than to cave in to such fantasies

Guzzle down,
My neck will burn as we kiss
And I'm sick in your mouth
I know you want more
Lick my open wounds and add some ice
And choke on my sick vice
Oh girl, the lights are on

I feel better now I've seen you
But deep inside my bones feel like timber
And I am shaking at the tension
And I will shudder at the mention

Goin' Down

( Bruce Springsteen cover with Kid Harpoon )

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 going 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

Halloween

( Florrible and Misrabella )

Well let me tell you a story now
About a judge a thief and a wife and a clown
Cos' on this fine fine day one of them
Goes down

The judge said to the thief boy it's a fine day for justice
And the thief said to the judge oh man it's a fine fine day for love
The wife said to the clown, my dear you gotta take the judge down
And the clown, the clown he just smiled

As the clown stood covered in the judge's blood he cried
Well I will be a fool no more
I will be a fool no more
As he turned and cart wheeled out the door

Now let me tell you something
The thief the thief and the wife
Well they left that day
Left the clown covered in the judges blood alone

The clown frowned as he fell to the ground
It's a fine, fine day for love
It's a fine fine fine fine day
A fine fine day for fools

And I will be a fool no more
Because of you

Halo

( Beyonce cover / Radio 1's live lounge )

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
Gravity can't forget
To pull me back to the ground again

It's like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin'
The risk that I'm takin'
I ain't ever 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

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

I can see your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo, halo, halo

Hardest of Hearts

( Lungs Deluxe Edition Version )

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
We don't care if it hurts or we're holding too tight

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 it 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

My heart swells like a water at waves
Can't stop myself before it's too late
Hold on to your heart
'Cause I'm coming to take it
Hold on to your heart
'Cause I'm coming to break it

Hold on hold on hold on hold on hold on
Hold on hold on hold on hold on hold on
The hardest of hearts (hold on, hold on)
The hardest of hearts (hold on, hold on)
The hardest of hearts (hold on)

Heavy in Your Arms

( Twilight Eclipse Soundtrack )

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

I'm so heavy, heavy
Heavy in your arms
I'm so heavy, heavy
So heavy in your arms

This will be my last confession
"I love you" never felt like any blessing
Whisper it like it's a secret
Uttered to condemn the one who hears it
With a heavy heart

Heavy. Heavy. Heavy. I'm so heavy in your arms
(I'm so heavy) Heavy, heavy. I'm so heavy in your arms
(I'm so heavy) Heavy, heavy. I'm so heavy in your arms
(I'm so heavy) Heavy, heavy. I'm so heavy in your arms

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
But he never let me down
When he held me in his arms
My feet never touched the ground

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

Here Lies Love

( David Byrne & Fatboy Slim Feat. Florence Welch )

When I was a young girl in Leyte
My dresses were all hand-me-downs and scrubs
Iíd see the people smile, and I would sing for them
How happy they all seemed when I would dance

We lived a stoneís throw from the palace
A simple country girl who had a dream
Ladies passing by of better class than I
How much it meant to me
To be like these

Is it a sin to love too much?
Is it a sin to care?
Iíd do it all for you
How can it be unfair?
I know that when my numberís up
When I am called by God above
Donít have my name inscribed into the stone
Just say, ďHere lies love!Ē ďHere lies love!Ē Here lies love!Ē
Just say, ďHere lies love!Ē ďHere lies love!Ē Here lies love!Ē

The most important things are love and beauty
It doesnít matter if youíre rich or poor
To prosper and to fly
A basic human right
The feeling in your heart that youíre secure

Is it a sin to love too much?
Is it a sin to care?
Iíd do it all for you
How can it be unfair?
I know that when my numberís up
When I am called by God above
Donít have my name inscribed into the stone
Just say, ďHere lies love!Ē ďHere lies love!Ē Here lies love!Ē
Just say, ďHere lies love!Ē ďHere lies love!Ē Here lies love!Ē
I know that when my numberís up
When I am called by God above
Donít have my name inscribed into the stone
Just say, ďHere lies love!Ē ďHere lies love!Ē Here lies love!Ē
Just say, ďHere lies love!Ē ďHere lies love!Ē Here lies love!Ē

Hospital Beds

( Cold War Kids cover )

There's nothing to do here
All just lie and complain
In bed at the hospital
Coming and going
Asleep and awake
In bed at the hospital

I've got one friend
Laying across from me
I did not choose him
He did not choose me
We have no chance
Of recovering
Laying in hospitals
Joy and misery
Joy and misery
Joy and misery

Put out the fire boys
Don't stop, don't stop
Put out the fire on us

Put out the fire boys
Don't stop, don't stop
Put out the fire on us

Bring your buckets by the dozen
Bring your nieces and your cousins
Oh, put out the fire on us

Bring your buckets by the dozen
Bring your nieces and your cousins
Oh, put out the fire on us

I've got one friend
Laying across from me
I did not choose him
He did not choose me
We have no chance
Of recovering
Laying in hospitals
Joy and misery
Joy and misery
And joy and joy and joy and joy
And joy and joy and misery

I Don't Wanna Know

( Mario Winians cover )

Somebody said they saw you
The person you were kissing wasn't me
And I will never ask you
I just kept it to myself

I don't wanna know
If you're playing me keep it on the low
Cos my heart can't take it anymore
And if you're creeping please don't let it show
Oh baby, I don't wanna know

Did he touch you better that me
Watch you fall asleep
I'll show you all those things
All the thing you do to me
If you're better of that way
Then it's more than I can say
If you wanna do you're thing
Then stay away from me, oh

If you're playing me keep it on the low
Cos my heart can't take it anymore
And if you're creeping please don't let it show
Oh baby, I don't wanna know

If I Had A Heart

( Live / Blinding Intro )

If I had a heart I would love you
If I had a voice I would sing
I promise you the stars up above you
Promise you my gold diamond ring

And we sing...

Jackson

( Johnny Cash Cover

We got married in a fever
Hotter than a pepper sprout
We've been talking about Jackson
Ever since the fire went out

I'm going to Jackson
I'm gonna mess around
I'm going to Jackson
Look out Jackson town

Well, go on down to Jackson
Go ahead and wreck your health
Go play your hand you big-talkin' man
And make a big fool of yourself
You're going to Jackson
Go comb your hair
Honey, I'm gonna snowball Jackson
See if I care

When I breeze into the city
People gonna stoop and bow
All them women gonna make me
Teach 'em what they don't know how
I'm going to Jackson
And loose my coat
Yeah I'm going to Jackson
"Goodbye," that's all she wrote
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
But they'll laugh at you in Jackson
And I'll be dancing on a Pony Keg
They'll lead you 'round town like a scalded hound
With your tail tucked between your legs
You're going to Jackson, you big-talkin' man
And I'll be waiting in Jackson
Behind my Jaypan Fan

We got married in a fever
Hotter than a pepper Sprout
We've been talkin' about Jackson
Ever since the fire went out
We're going to Jackson, and that's a fact
We're going to Jackson, ain't never coming back

We got married in a fever
Hotter than a pepper sprout'
We've been talking about Jackson
Ever since the fire went out
Ever since the fire went out
Ever since the fire went out

I Heard It Through The Grapevine

( Marvin Gaye cover / Live Dazed Tv Party )

Oh, I bet you're wondering how I knew
Bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
If that's true please tell me love

It took me by surprise my love baby
When I found out yesterday

Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Now I'm just about to lose my mind,honey honey

I know a man ain't supposed to cry
But these tears I can't hold inside
See losing you would end my life you see
Cos you mean that much to me

And you could have told, me yourself
That you love someone else

Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Now I'm just about to lose my mind,honey honey
I know
That you're letting me go
Honey hone I know
That you're letting me go
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be my baby
Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be my baby
Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be my baby
Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be my

I Love It

(Icona Pop cover / Dev Hynes & Florence Welch / Live at Human Rights Campaign Benefit)

I got this feeling on a summer day when you were gone
I crashed my car into the bridge, I loved, I let it burn
I threw your shit into a bag and tossed it down the stairs

I don't care, I love it
I don't care, I love it
I don't care

I got this feeling on a summer day when you were gone
I crashed my car into the bridge, I loved, I let it burn
I threw your shit into a bag and tossed it down the stairs

'Cause I don't care
I don't care
I don't care

You're on a different road, I'm in the Milky Way
You want me down on earth, but I am up in space
You're so damn hard to please, we gotta kill this switch
You're from the 70's, but I'm a 90's

And I don't care
I don't care
I don't care
I love it

And I got this feeling on a summer day when you were gone
And I crashed my car into the bridge, I loved, I let it burn
I threw your shit into a bag and tossed it down the stairs

'Cause I don't care
I don't care
I don't care
I love it

Landscape

( Ceremonials Deluxe Edition )

She can't see the landscape anymore
It's all painted in her grief
All of her history etched out at her feet

Now all of the landscape, it's just an empty place
Echoes and warning, mountains of tenderness

Cause she's just like the weather, can't hold her together
Born from dark water, daughter of the rain and snow
Cause it's burning through the bloodline
It's coming down the family tree
Rolling in the landscape, darling, in between you and me

She wants the silence but fears the solitude
She wants to be alone and together with you
So she ran to the lighthouse, hoped that it would help her see
She's sober at the lighthouse and then washed out to sea
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Cause she's just like the weather, can't hold her together
Born from dark water, daughter of the rain and snow
Cause it's burning through the bloodline
It's coming down the family tree
Rolling in the landscape, darling, in between you and me

I wanna give you back the open sky
Give you back the open sea
Open up the ages, darling, for you to see

You put the gun into your mouth to die
You put the lid and spit out
Cause it's running in the family
Oh the rich and

Cause she's just like the weather, can't hold her together
Born from dark water, daughter of the rain and snow
Cause it's burning through the bloodline
It's coming down the family tree
Rolling in the landscape, darling, in between you and me

Last Christmas

( Wham Cover / Live )

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby do you recognise me
Well it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me

Merry Christmas, I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying "I Love You" I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

A crowded room, friends with tired eyes
I'm thinking of you and your soul of ice
My God I thought you were someone to rely on
Me, I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man undercover but you tore me apart
Oh, oh now I've found a real love you'll never fool me again

'Cause last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special
Someone special
Someone special
I'll give it to someone special

My Baby Just Care For Me

( Nina Simone Cover / Live )

My baby don't care for shows
My baby don't care for clothes
He cares for me
My baby don't care for cars and races
My baby don't care for high-tone places

Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Lana Turner's smile
Is something he can't see
My baby don't care who knows
My baby just cares for me

My baby don't care for shows
My baby don't care for clothes
He cares for me
My baby don't care for cars and races
Baby, baby don't care for
He don't care for high-tone places

Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Liberace's smile
Is something, something he can't see
Is something he can't see
I wonder what's wrong with baby
My baby just cares for
Oh my baby just cares for
My baby just cares for me

My Best Dress

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

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

Oh! Darling

( The Beatles Cover / Live )

Oh, darling.
Please believe me.
I'll never do you no harm
Believe me when I tell you
I'll never do you no harm

Oh, darling
If you leave me
I'll never make it alone
Believe me when I beg you
Don't ever leave me alone

When you told me
You didn't need me anymore
Well, you know, I nearly
Broke down and cried
When you told me
You didn't need me anymore
Well, you know, I nearly
Fell down and died

Oh, darling
If you leave me
I'll never make it alone
Believe me when I tell you
I'll never do you no harm

When you told me
You didn't need me anymore
Well, you know, I nearly
Broke down and cried
When you told me
You didn't need me anymore
Well, you know, I nearly
Fell down and died.

Oh, darling
Please believe me
I'll never let you down

Believe me when I tell you
I'll never do you no harm

Over The Love

( The Great Gatsby OST )

Ever since I was a child
I've turned it over in my mind
I sang by the piano
Tore my yellow dress and
Cried and cried and cried
And I don't want to see what I've seen
To undo what has been done
Turn off all the lights
And let the morning come, come

Now there's green light in my eyes
And my lover on my mind
And I sing from the piano
Tear my yellow dress and
Cry and cry and cry
Over the love of you

On this champagne-drunken home
Against the current of old
Everybody see I love him
'Cause it's a feeling that you get
When the afternoon is set
On the bridge into the city

And I don't want to see what I've seen
To undo what has been done
Turn off all the lights
Let the morning come

Now there's green light in my eyes
And my lover on my mind
And I sing from the piano
Tear my yellow dress and
Cry and cry and cry

'Cause you're a hard soul to save
With an ocean in the way
But I'll get around it
I'll get around it
'Cause you're a hard soul to save
With an ocean in the way
But I'll get around it

Now there's green light in my eyes
And my lover on my mind
And I sing from the piano
Tear my yellow dress and
Cry and cry and cry and
Over the love of you

Cry and cry and cry and
Over the love of you
Cry and cry and cry and
[I can see the green light
I can see it in your eyes]
Over the love of you
Cry, cry, cry, cry

I can see the green light
I can see it in your eyes
I can see the green light
I can see it in your eyes
I can see the green light
I can see it in your eyes

Pearls and Roses

( Ashok 'Under the Thumb' cover )

I used to listen to him, sitting on my shoulder
But he's losing my affection, I've fallen for another
He made me do some bad things, but you make me do the worst
He's been around for centuries, but you were still the first

He may have fire and brimstone, all the power in the world
But I'm not trying to impress him now that I'm your girl
He says he wants me back, and I don't know what to do
ĎCause I don't need the devil now that I've got you

When he'd tell me to take one, you tell me to take four
And when he'd say smash the window, you say break down the door

He sent me pearls and roses, a diamond necklace too
Oh, but I don't need the devil now that I got you
We don't need a storm when we're making our own thunder
And we don't need the Reaper; we're already six feet under

If you can pull the trigger, I will load the gun
And if you can tie the knot, I will make sure that your hung
If you can find the pills, I will make that bed
And I don't need the devil, I've got you instead

If you can pull the trigger, I will load the gun
And if you can tie the knot, I will make sure that your hung
If you can find the pills, I will make that bed
And I don't need the devil, I've got you instead

Postcards from Italy

( Beirut cover )

The times we had
Oh when the wind would blow with rain and snow
Were not all bad
We put our feet just where they had, had to go
Never to go

The shattered soul
Following close but nearly twice as slow
In my good times
There were always golden rocks to throw
At those who admit defeat too late
Those were our times, those were our times

And I will love to see that day
That day was mine
When she will marry me outside by the willow trees
And play the songs we made
They made me so
And I would love to see that day
Her day was mine

Remain Nameless

( Ceremonials Deluxe Edition )

I was born in a big grey cloud
Screaming out a love song
All the broken chords and unnamed cries
What a place to come from

I wish to remain nameless
And live without shame
'Cause what's in a name, oh
I still remain the same

You can call it what you want
You can call me anything you want
You can call us what you want
You can call me anything you want
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Everybody lets you down
In this free fall of a town
What a difference of the rushing out
Tell me what you're running from

I know everybody lets you down
And I'll do the same
But know I'll always be around
This can remain the same

Call me when you need me
Call me anything you want
Darling believe me
Nothing I haven't done before

Call me when you need me
Call me when you need me
Darling believe me
Darling believe me

Call me when you need me
Call me when you need me
Darling believe me
Darling believe me

Call me when you need me
Call me when you need me
Darling believe me
Darling believe me

Call me when you need me

Small Hands

( Florrible and Misrabella )

I can safely say that last night
Was the worst night of my life
And I apologize
For everything I might have said or done
I can't remember a thing

I don't remember falling down
I don't remember getting up
And I certainly don't remember drinking that much

Last night was the worst night
Of my life
And I apologize
For everything I might have said or done

I can't remember anything about it
So I'm gonna shout it

I'm sorry for what I said
And I'm sorry for what I did
But I can't remember any of it

Still Life

( The Horrors cover / Duet with Florence Welch )

Under a sky, no one sees
Waiting, watching it happening
Don't hurry give it time
Things are the way they have to be
Slow down, give it time
Still life, you know I'm listening
The moment that you want is coming if you give it time

When you wake up, when you wake up
You will find me
When you wake up, when you wake up
You will find me
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Under a sky, no one else sees
I'm here watching it's happening
The sky clears, the sun hits
And I'm here waiting it's happening
The moment that you want is coming if you give it time

When you wake up, when you wake up
You will find me
When you wake up, when you wake up
You will find me

When you wake up, when you wake up
You will find me
When you wake up, when you wake up
You will find me

Strangeness and Charm

( Ceremonials Deluxe Edition )

Hydrogen in our veins, it cannot hold itself, my blood is boiling
And the pressure in our bodies that echoes up above it is exploding
And our particles that burn it all because they yearn for each other
And although we stick together it seems that we are stranging one another

Sweet Nothing

(Calvin Harris feat. Florence Welsh / 18 Months LP)

You took my heart and you had it in your mouth
And with the word all my love came rushing out
And every whisper, it's the worst
Empty out by a single word
There is a hollow in me now

So I put my faith in something I know
I'm living on such sweet nothing
But I'm tired of hope with nothing to hope
I'm living on such sweet nothing
And it's hard to learn
And it's hard to love
When you're giving me such sweet nothing
Sweet nothing, sweet nothing
You're giving me such sweet nothing
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
It isn't easy for me to let it go
'Cause I swallow every single word
And every whisper, every sigh
It swept this heart of mine
And there is a hollow in me now

So I put my faith in something I know
I'm living on such sweet nothing
But I'm tired of hope with nothing to hope
I'm living on such sweet nothing
And it's hard to learn
And it's hard to love
When you're giving me such sweet nothing
Sweet nothing, sweet nothing
You're giving me such sweet nothing

And it's not enough
To tell me that you care
When we both know the words are empty air
You give me nothing
Nothing

Sweet nothing
Sweet nothing

Swimming

( Lungs Limited Edition Version )

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

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

I was sinking and now I'm sunk
I was drinking and now I'm drunk
Your songs remind me of swimming
But somehow I forgot

I tried to remember the chorus
I can't remember the verse
ĎCause 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 anymore
Your songs remind me of swimming
But I can't swim anymore

Pull me out the water, cold and blue
I open my eyes and see that it's you
So I dive straight back in the ocean
So I dive straight back in the ocean.

Take a deep breath, suck the water in my chest
Take a deep breath, suck the water in my chest
Cross my fingers and hope for the best

Then all of a sudden, I heard a note
It started in my chest and ended in my throat
Then I realized, then I realized
Then I realized I was swimming
Yes I was swimming
And now I'm swimming
Yes I am swimming.

Your songs remind me of swimming
Which I forgot when I started to sink

Your songs remind me of swimming
Which I forgot when I started to sink

Oh, your songs remind me of swimming
Which I forgot when I started

Your songs remind me of swimming
Which I forgot when I started

To sink

Take Care

( Drake Cover / Live BBC )

Know youíve been hurt by someone else
I can tell by the way you carry yourself
If you let me, hereís what Iíll do
Iíll take care of you
'Cause Iíve loved and Iíve lost

Iíve asked about you and they told me things
My mind didnít change, I still feel the same
A life with no fun, please donít be so ashamed
Iíve got mine, youíve got yours we both know, we know
They donít get you like I will
My only wish is I die real
'Cause that truth hurts, and those lies heal
You canít sleep thinking that he lies still
So you cry still, tears all in the pillow case
Big girls all get a little taste
Pushing me away so I give her space
Dealing with a heart that I didnít break
Iíll be there for you, I will care for you
I keep thinking you just donít know
Trying to run from that, say youíre done with that
On your face girl, it just donít show
When youíre ready, just say youíre ready
When all the baggage just ainít as heavy
And the parties over, just donít forget me
Weíll change the pace and we'll just go slow
You wonít ever have to worry
You wonít ever have to hide
You've seen all my mistakes
So look me in my eyes

'Cause if you let me
Hereís what Iíll do
Iíll take care of you
'Cause Iíve loved and Iíve lost

Itís my birthday, I'll get high if I want to
Canít deny that I want you, but I'll lie if I have to
'Cause you donít say you love me
To your friends when they ask you
Even though we both know that you do, you do
One time, been in love one time
You and all your girls in the club one time
All so convinced that youíre following your heart
'Cause your mind donít control what it does sometimes
We all have our nights though, donít be so ashamed
Iíve got mine, youíve got yours, we both know, we know
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Know youíve been hurt by someone else
I can tell by the way you carry yourself
If you let me, hereís what Iíll do
Iíll take care of you
'Cause Iíve loved and Iíve lost
Iíve loved and Iíve lost
Iíve loved and Iíve lost
Iíve loved and Iíve lost

The Chain

( Fleetwood Mac Cover / Live )

Listen to the wind blow
Watch the sun rise
Run in the shadows
Damn your love, damn your lies

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain

Listen to the wind blow
Down comes the night
Run in the shadows
Damn your love, damn your lies

Break the silence
Damn the dark, damn the light

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain

Run in the shadows
Chain, keeps us together
Run in the shadows
Chain, keeps us together
Run in the shadows
Chain, keeps us together...

The Rat

( The Walkman cover )

When I used to go out
I'd know everyone I saw
Now I go out alone If I go out at all

When I used to go out
I'd know everyone I saw
Now I go out alone If I go out at all

You gotta know to be asking a favor
You gotta know to be calling my number
I know, we've been through this before

Can't you hear me I'm calling on your door
Can't you see me I'm bleeding on your wall
Can't you hear me when I'm calling out your name

Throwing Bricks

( Live MTV Session )

I built a man made out of bricks, and lived inside his chest
I beat my head against the wall to make a heart deep in his breast
I smashed my fist against his ribs to suck the air inside
And swing by swing, and blow by blow, I brought that man to life

I built a man and cut his skin, and lived inside his heart
I pumped it with my fingertips, and loved it from the start
And with every beat I gave him a heartbeat of my own
And filled his veins with the blood I had

Till his blood,
Till his blood,
Till his blood,
Was my own

Oh, I'd build you up, but we're not made of the same stuff,
And even though I knocked you down, you're so much stronger than me
Well, I would build you up, but we're not made of the same stuff,
And even though I knocked you down, you're so much stronger than me

Try A Little Tenderness

( Connelly, Woods & Campbell / Live MTV Unplugged )

Oh she may be weary
And young girls they do get wearied
Wearing that same old shaggy dress
When she gets weary
Try a little tenderness

You know she's waiting
Just anticipating
A thing that she'll never
Never, never, possess
While she's there waiting
Try a little tenderness
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
It's not sentimental, no no no
She has her grief and care
But the soft words
They are spoke so gentle
It makes it easier to bare

You won't regret it, no
Young girls they don't forget it
Love is their whole happiness
But it's all so easy
All you've gotta do is try
All you've gotta do is

Squeeze her, don't tease her
Never leave her
Try a little tenderness
Don't leave her, no no
Try a little tenderness

Ye Olde Hope

( A.k.a Tear out your tongue )

Old hope, got stuck in your throat
Wound its way round your neck, and caused you to choke
That old hope, made of rope,
Held you tight as the chair legs broke

When they found you hanging in the wood
You said, "At least, now, I don't have to be kind or good,
I'll be cruel, and I'll be obscene,
Tear out my tongue, Ďcause I've been redeemed"

When they found you hanging in the wood
You said, "At least, now, I don't have to be kind or good,
I'll be cruel, and I'll be obscene,
Tear out my tongue, Ďcause I've been redeemed"

Save my blushes for the grave,
No shy glance, no coy restraint,
And I won't hang my head, and I won't repent,
Won't face the wall and count to ten

Five, six, seven, eight, nine... ten

Well they tore you down, and they tore out your tongue,
And they made you kneel for all the things that you done
But you wouldn't cry, and you wouldn't beg,
You just grinned, and tore out your teeth instead

And when they found you hanging in the wood
You said, "At least, now, I don't have to be kind or good,
I'll be cruel, and I'll be obscene,
Tear out my tongue, Ďcause I've been redeemed"

You Got The Dirtee Love

( Dizzee Rascal ft Florence )

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 ainít made yet,
Got a benz on tik that they ainít paid yet,
Spend their pay cheque
In the west end on the weekend
Got no money by the end of the weekend.
But they donít care cos their life is a movie,
Starring Louis V, paid for by yours truly,
Truthfully, itís a joke, like a bad episode of hollyoaks
Canít keep up with the cover notes,
So they got bad credit liviní on direct debit,
In debt but they still donít get
Cos they too busy liviní the high life, the night life
Hugginí the high way, liviní large
And they all say

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

Check it, yo
Let me take you down to London city
Where the attitudes bad and the weather is shitty
Everybodyís on the paper chase, its one big rat race
Everybody got a screw face
So many too fake
Checking the height, they say they ready to ride
Iím on the inside looking at the outside
So itís a accurate reflection
City wide north east west and the south side
Everywhere I go thereís a girl on the corner
Guns and drugs got the city like a sauna,
And itís getting warmer and out of order
Trying to put a struggling mother to a morner
Mr politician can you tell me the solution
Whatís the answer whatís the conclusion
Is it an illusion, is it a mirage.
I see youngers dieing coz their tryna live largeíí
And they all say

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

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

Check it, yo
We are living in the days of the credit crunch
Give me the doh
Iím trying have a bunch
But I canít have rice for lunch
Itís not there ainít enough to share
Ainít fair never dreamed that he could be rare
Who cares who dares to make a change
Everybody in the club trying to make it rain
But not for famine just for the sake of habit
15 minutes of fame and everythingís the same
Again and again I see the same thing
Everybody acting like they their plane sailiní
I see rough seas ahead maybe a recession
And then a depression in whatever profession
This is my confession I canít fight Iím in the forefront
Living for money ready to start like a bungee jump
With no rope but I ainít trying to see the bottom
Because thatís were I came from, I ainít forgotten

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

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
