June
Florence + the Machine Lyrics


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

(Oh)
(Oh)
(Oh)
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 have 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

Always down to hide with you
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

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



Sanjana Shanker

i wrote a poem for my love loosely inspired by this song.



"june"


we stood hand in hand
and watched the towers that held up the sky
come tumbling down, an apocalypse in painstaking slow motion.
i clenched your hand tight and said,
"just say the word. i'll hide away with you."
this is june.
a comforting voice says hold on to each other
and we do, pressed tight like book pages
eloquent skinship saying all i have wanted to tell you.
this is june.
hide me in the hollows between your bones
and i'll wrap you in my arms for the rainy season,
hands pressed to ribs, lips to neck
as though i could melt into your skin
and learn how to forget
the cavernous hunger that knaws
at my lungs when it gets too quiet.
your hands on scarred shoulders, pull me down to earth.
this is june. this is june.

June
Florence + The Machine
Produced by Emile Haynie & Florence Welch
Album: High As Hope

[Verse 1]
The show was ending and I had started to crack
Woke up in Chicago when the sky turned black
And you're so high, you're so high, you have to be an angel
And I'm so high, I'm so high, I can see an angel

[Pre-Chorus]
I hear your heart beating in your chest
The world slows till there's nothing left
Skyscrapers look on like great, unblinking giants
In those heavy days in June
When love became an act of defiance

[Chorus]
Hold on to each other
Hold on to each other
Hold on to each other
Hold on to each other

[Verse 2]
And you were broken-hearted
And the world was too (2)
And I was beginning to lose my grip
And I have always held it loosely
But this time I admit
I felt it really start to slip
And choirs sing in the street
And I would come to you
To watch the television screen
In your hotel room
I'm always down to hide with you

[Chorus]
Hold on to each other
Hold on to each other
Hold on to each other
Hold on to each other

[Outro]
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 have to be an angel
And 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

Sometimes it feels as if nobody knows me
Shall i always walk this road alone?
This road ive paved, one who shouts of failed attempts at grasping love
This body, i see looking back at me as i stare in the mirror
Speaks in silent trembles of the spine
While i lie in bed, i cannot forsake you
Im sorry that i tried to destroy you after you helped me build everything ive ever created in life
Creature of destruction
That is i
As i attempt to build some sort of bridge between you and i
I feel alone as you reach out to me
But my mind tells me all i see are hallucinations
Created by my false sense of hope
That the ones i think i love, know how to really love

I feel like crying, this is the first album Florence + the machine have released since my mum died, her birthday Is in June. Hearing "hold on to eachother" reminded me of what she always said to me and my sister, she always told us she wouldn't be here forever so my sister and I had to always hold on to eachother, and we will

DIANA ROBLERO

gosh...

Murilo Figueiredo

I went through the same in 2018, just 2 weeks before this album came out. And since then this record has helped me to heal in some many, many ways.

Jenifer Loggins

The beginning of the very first song of the album -
Florence: The show is ending
Me: What? 🤨

Anthony Smith

I would have liked your comment but it's on a good number so I commented instead 😁

"those heavy days in june when love became an act of defiance" i can't stop thinking about that line

Anushree Mishra

I kinda wrote a poem inspired by it, but I changed it to "love has always been an act of defiance" because this line really hit me hard as a lesbian

Joanna Standen

Absolutely! Me too!

Andie P.

A year later and the timing is spot on for the current climate. ✨
