Florence + The Machine Remain Nameless

I was born in a big gray 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

Everybody lets you down

In this brief hole of a town

What a difference of the rushing out

Tell me what you’re running from

I know everybody lets you down

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

Call me when you need me

Darling, believe me, darling, believe me

Darling, believe me, darling believe me

Call me when you need me

Call me when you need me

Call me when you need me

Call me when you need me

Darling, believe me

Darling, believe me

Darling, believe me

Darling, believe me

Call me when you need me

Call me when you need me

Call me when you need me

Call me when you need me

Darling, believe me

Darling, believe me

Darling, believe me

Darling, believe me

Call me when you need me

Call me when you need 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

Call me when you need me

Florence + The Machine Sky Full Of Song

How deeply are you sleeping or are you still awake?

A good friend told me you’ve been staying out so late

Be careful, oh, my darling, oh, be careful what it takes

From what I’ve seen so far, the good ones always seem to break

And I was screaming at my father and you were screaming at me

And I can feel your anger from way across the sea

And I was kissing strangers, I was causing such a scene

Oh, the heart it hides such unimaginable things

Grab me by my ankles, I’ve been flying for too long

I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

And I want you so badly but you could be anyone

I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

Hold me down, I’m so tired now

Aim your arrow at the sky

Take me down, I’m too tired now

Leave me where I lie

And I can tell that I’m in trouble when that music starts to play

In a city without seasons, it keeps raining in LA

I feel like I’m about to fall, the room begins to sway

And I can hear the sirens but I cannot walk away

Grab me by my ankles, I’ve been flying for too long

I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

And I want you so badly but you could be anyone

I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

Hold me down, I’m so tired now

Aim your arrow at the sky

Take me down, I’m too tired now

Leave me where I lie

I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight

I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight

And I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight

And I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight

Hold me down, I’m so tired now

Aim your arrow at the sky (shoot, shoot, shoot)

Take me down, I’m too tired now

Leave me where I lie (Fire)

Hold me down, I’m too tired now

Aim your arrow at the sky (shoot, shoot, shoot)

And take me down, I’m too tired now

Leave me where I lie (Fire)

Florence + The Machine Rabbit Heart

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

Florence + The Machine What Kind Of Man

I was on a heavy tip

Tryna cross a canyon with a broken limb

You were on the other side

Like always, wondering what to do with life

I’d already had a sip

So I’d reasoned I was drunk enough to deal with it

You were on the other side

Like always, you could never make your mind

And with one kiss

You inspired a fire of devotion

That lasted for twenty years

What kind of man loves like this?

To let me dangle at a cruel angle

Oh my feet don’t touch the floor

Sometimes you’re half in and then you’re half out

But you never close the door

What kind of man loves like this?

What kind of man?

What kind of man loves like this?

What kind of man?

You’re a holy fool all colored blue

Red feet upon the floor

You do such damage, how do you manage

Tryna crawling back for more?

And with one kiss

You inspired a fire of devotion

That lasted for twenty years

What kind of man loves like this?

What kind of man loves like this?

What kind of man?

What kind of man loves like this?

What kind of man?

But I can’t beat you

Cause I’m still with you

Oh mercy I implore

How do you do it?

I think I’m through it

Then I’m back against the wall

What kind of man loves like this?

What kind of man?

What kind of man loves like this?

What kind of man?

What kind of man loves like this?

What kind of man?

What kind of man loves like this?

What kind of man?

Florence + The Machine Breath Of Life

I was looking for a breath of life

For little touch of heavenly light

But all the choirs in my head sang, “No!”

To get a dream of life again

A little vision of the start and the end

But all the choirs in my head sang, “No!”

But I needed one more touch

Another taste of heavenly rush

And I believe, I believe it’s so

[Not in the music video:]

And I needed one more touch

Another taste of divine rush

And I believe, I believe it’s so

Whose side am I on? Whose side am I?

Whose side am I on? Whose side am I?

And the fever began to spread

From my heart down to my legs

But the room is so quiet

And although I wasn’t losing my mind

It was a chorus so sublime

But the room is too quiet

(the fever)

I was looking for a breath of life

A little touch of heavenly light

But all the choirs in my head sang, “No!”

(fever)

[Not in the music video:]

To get a dream of life again

A little vision of the start and the end

But all the choirs in my head sang, “No!”

[Choir:]

And the fever dream of life

And the chorus so sublime

And the room was too quiet

It’s a harder way and it’s come to claim her

And I always say, we should be together

I can’t sleep alone, ’cause there’s something in here

And if you are gone, I will not belong here

(belong, belong, belong)

And I started to hear it again

But this time it wasn’t the end

And the room is so quiet

And my heart is a hollow plain

For the devil to dance again

But the room is too quiet

I was looking for a breath of life

A little touch of heavenly light

But all the choirs in my head sang, “No!”

Florence + The Machine 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

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 cruel mistress

And a bargain must be made

But oh, my love, don’t forget me

When I let the water take me

So lay me down

Let the only sound

Be the over flow

Pockets full of stones

Lay me down

Let the only sound

Be the overflow

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

Florence + The Machine June

The show was ending and I had started to crack

Woke up in Chicago and the sky turned black

And you’re so high, you’re so high, you had to be an angel

And I’m so high, I’m so high, I can see an angel

I hear your heart beating in your chest

The world slows ’till there’s nothing left

Skyscrapers look on like great, unblinking giants (oh)

In those heavy days in June

When love became an act of defiance

Hold onto each other

Hold onto each other

Hold onto each other

Hold onto each other

You were broken-hearted and the world was, too

And I was beginning to lose my grip

And I always held it loosely

But this time I admit

I felt it really start to slip

And choir singing in the street

And I will come to you

To watch the television screen

In your hotel room

Hold onto each other

Hold onto each other

Hold onto each other

Hold onto each other

You’re so high, you’re so high

You’re so high, you’re so high

You’re so high, you’re so high

You had to be an angel

I’m so high, I’m so high

I’m so high, I’m so high

I’m so high, I’m so high

I can see an angel

Florence + The Machine Spectrum

When we first came here

We were cold and we were clear

With no colors on our skin

We were light and paper thin

And when we first came here

We were cold and we were clear

With no colors on our skin

‘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

And when it’s time to pray

We’ll be 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 our names aloud

And we won’t eat and we won’t sleep

We’ll drag bodies from the 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

Florence + The Machine Tiny Dancer

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band

Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man

Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand

And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

Jesus freaks out in the street

Handing tickets out for God

Turning back she just laughs

The boulevard is not that bad

Piano man he makes his stand

In the auditorium

Looking on she sings the songs

The words she knows the tune she hums

But oh how it feels so real

Lying here with no one near

Only you and you can hear me

When I say softly, slowly

Hold me closer tiny dancer

Count the headlights on the highway

Lay me down in sheets of linen

You had a busy day today

Hold me closer tiny dancer

Count the headlights on the highway

Lay me down in sheets of linen

You had a busy day today

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band

Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man

Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand

And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

But oh how it feels so real

Lying here with no one near

Only you and you can hear me

When I say softly, slowly

Hold me closer tiny dancer

Count the headlights on the highway

Lay me down in sheets of linen

You had a busy day today

Hold me closer tiny dancer

Count the headlights on the highway

Lay me down in sheets of linen

You had a busy day today

Florence + The Machine Dog Days Are Over

Happiness hit her like a train on a track

Coming towards her stuck still no turning back

She hid it ’round corners and she hid it 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 love and your longing behind

You can’t carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over

The dog days are done

Can you hear the horses?

‘Cause here they come

And I never wanted anything from you

Except everything you had and what was left after that too, oh

Happiness hit her like a bullet in the 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?

‘Cause 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 love and your longing behind

You can’t carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over

The dog days are done

Can you hear the horses?

‘Cause here they come

[2x]

The dog days are over

The dog days are done

The horses are coming

So you better run
