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

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

We raise it up this offering
We raise it up

This is a gift it comes with a price
Who is the cordeiro 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...

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

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

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow

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

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

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow

'Cause they took your loved ones
But returned them...

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

Then i put that bird...

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 amor 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 amor I need to see me through

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

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

Time after time I think "Oh...

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


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

“We’re testing out giant video screens and projectors,”...

[Verse 1]

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

[Chorus]

And I would give all this and heaven too,
I would give it all if only for a moment,
That I could just understand the meaning of the word you see,
Cause I’ve been scrawling...

[Verse 1]

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

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 2]

And hen we come for you,
We'll be dressed all in blue,
With the ocean in our arms,...

[Verse 1]

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

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

[Chorus]

Just keep following the heartlines on your head,
Just keep following the heatlines on your head,...

[Verse 1]

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

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 2]

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

[Chorus Repeat]

[Verse 3]

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

[Chorus Repeat] (X2)

[Verse 1]

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

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 2]

And the grama was...

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

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...

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 cantar with your voice, I want to pour it out
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have...

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 por 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...

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

We get dressed up and we go out, baby, for the night
We come início early burning, burning in some fogo 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 amor to drive me wild
But lately girl you get your kicks from just driving me down
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 cozinha sink

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

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

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?...

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

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

No mais dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone
No mais calling like a corvo for a boy, for a body in the garden
No mais dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No mais dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No mais dreaming like a girl so in amor with...

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

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

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

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

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

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

Are you hurting the one you love?
And if heaven knows then who will stop.
Are you hurting the one you love?
You said you got to heaven, but it wasn't enough.

[Verse 1]

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

[Chorus]

Seven devils all around you,
Seven devils in my house,
See they were there when I woke up this morning,
I'll be dead before the dia 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...

[Verse 1]

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

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 2]

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

[Chorus Repeat]

[Verse 3]

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

[Chorus Repeat]

[Verse 4]

You got a road to road,
cama to bed,
Lover to lover and black to red,
Road to road,
cama to bed,
Lover to lover, (X8)
No salvation for me now, (X4)
Oh-oh-oh-oh.
