Between Two Lungs
Florence + the Machine Lyrics


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

'Cause 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

'Cause 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 gasp

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

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

'cause 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
It 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
It flew between us as we slept
That slipped from your mouth into mine
It crept

'cause it was trapped
Trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs

Gone are 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...
Gasp,
Gasp.

Between Two Lungs, All This and Heaven Too, Third Eye, and No Choir. Each album's respective ode to love and happiness, and the inability or ability to properly convey it. Ugh 🧡

Žydrūnas Gira

I love Between Two Lungs, All This And Heaven Too, No Choir + St Jude with all my heart. It's just in my nature, the more emotions, the more melancholic, the more I love such tracks.

Vinyl Monkey

Best song ever to this day encompassing both, unspoken words between loved ones and how I feel when I write my songs and then finally get to sing them to listening ears
