Delilah
Florence + the Machine Lyrics


Drifting through the halls with the sunrise
(Holding on for your call)
Climbing up the walls for that flashing light
(I can never let go)

'Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Holding on for your call)
'Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Maybe not tonight)
Now the sun is up and I'm going blind
(Holding on for your call)
Another drink just to pass the time
(I can never say no)

'Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Holding on for your call)
'Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Maybe not tonight)

It's a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I'm calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It's a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
'Till Delilah showed me how

Too fast for freedom
Sometimes it all falls down
These chains never leave me
I keep dragging them around

Now I'm dancing with Delilah and her vision is mine
(Holding on for your call)
A different kind of danger in the daylight
(I can never let go)
Took anything to cut you, I can find
(Holding on for your call)
A different kind of a danger in the daylight
(Can't you let me know?)

Now it's one more boy and it's one more lie
(Holding on for your call)
Taking the pills just to pass the time
(I can never say no)

'Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Holding on for your call)
'Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Maybe not tonight)

It's a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I'm calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It's a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
'Till Delilah showed me how

Now I'm dancing with Delilah and her vision is mine
(Holding on for your call)
A different kind of danger in the daylight
(I can never let go)
Took anything to cut you, I can find
(Holding on for your call)
A different kind of a danger in the daylight
(Can't you let me know?)

Strung up, strung out for your love
Hang in, hung up, it's so rough
I'm wrung and ringing out
Why can't you let me know?

Strung up, strung out for your love
Hang in, hung up, it's so rough
I'm wrung and ringing out
Why can't you let me know?

It's a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I'm calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It's a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
'Till Delilah showed me how

It's a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I'm calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It's a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
'Till Delilah showed me how

Too fast for freedom
Sometimes it all falls down
These chains never leave me
I keep dragging them around

Too fast for freedom
Sometimes it all falls down
These chains never leave me
I keep dragging them around

You think you have lost your faith

 But you have not

 You have only misplaced your faith

 And you can't find it where it lies now

 Deep in your soul

 And the way to do that

 Is through the simple process of love

 Love yourself, forgive yourself

 You can't love and forgive other people

 If you don't first of all love and forgive yourself

 You have to realize that people are fallible beings

 They make mistakes, they have to be excused from these mistakes

 And allowed to continue on in this quest for a better life

 And for goodness

 So love yourself and then love other people

 Please forgive yourself

 Go on a journey of finding love and forgiveness

 Love people even thought ...

The world is not prepared for this woman. We are so privileged to have her at this time of humankind's slumber.

@Lil Penis I think he means we are living through a meek and mild period compared to say every other era (medieval, ancient, classical, dark ages, renaissance etc). there is a reason we are all bored and depressed. most men are growing restless and resentful and bored, I don't think feminism will be allowed for much longer.

She is old magic. The undying flame.

No better time than now for artists like FATM. Humankind needs her and more if we are to survive. This is reality.

And there was me thinking it was gollum going for a cheap feel. Impressed with your knowledge though.
