Make Up Your Mind
Florence + the Machine Lyrics


I never thought I'd be a killer
'Cause there's so much to lose
But if I can't drink the water
What else can I do
And although the axe is heavy
It just sits in my hands
While you're changing like the current
Not a shore on land

Every time I try to bring it down
You always turn my head around

Make up your mind
Let me leave or let me love you
While you've been saving your neck
I've been breaking mine for you
The power is on, the guillotine hums
My back's to the wall, go on, let it fall
Make up your mind
Before I make it up for you

I never thought that I'd be facing
A sea that's bluer than the tide
Now my knees are shaking
And I can't look in your eyes

But if you're gonna make me do it
How'd you want it done
Is it best to sip it slowly
Or drink it down in one

Every time I try to bring it down
You always turn my head around, oh

Make up your mind
Let me leave or let me love you
While you've been saving your neck
I've been breaking mine for you
The power is on, the guillotine hums
My back's to the wall, go on, let it fall
Make up your mind
Before I make it up for you

The executioner's within me
And he comes blindfold ready
Sword in hand
And arms so steady

Every time I try to bring it down
You always turn my head around
But every time I try to bring it down
You always turn my head around

Make up your mind
Let me leave or let me love you
While you've been saving your neck
I've been breaking mine for you
The power is on, the guillotine hums
My back's to the wall, go on, let it fall
Make up your mind
Before I make it up for you

Make up your mind
Let me leave or let me love you
While you've been saving your neck
I've been breaking mine for you
The power is on, the guillotine hums
My back's to the wall, go on, let it fall
Make up your mind
Before I make it up for you

'Cause there's so much to lose
But if I can't drink the water
What else can I do
And although the axe is heavy
It just sits in my hands
While you're changing like the current
Not a shore on land

Every time I try to bring it down
You always turn my head around

Make up your mind
Let me leave or let me love you
While you've been saving your neck
I've been breaking mine for you
The power is on, the guillotine hums
My back's to the wall, go on, let it fall

Now my knees are shaking
And I can't look in your eyes

But if you're gonna make me do it

But every time I try to bring it down
You always turn my head around

While you've been saving your neck
I've been breaking mine for you
The power is on, the guillotine hums
My back's to the wall, go on, let it fall
Make up your mind
Before I make it up for you

Make up your mind
Let me leave or let me love you
While you've been saving your neck
I've been breaking mine for you
The power is on, the guillotine hums
My back's to the wall, go on, let it fall
Make up your mind
Before I make it up for you

This song just hits so close to home because it is about if someone you are interested in that never pursues you and sends you mixed signals constantly just won't let you go. So the confusion of not knowing when to let go and if "the executioner" should really bring down the axe and just hack up the relationship and give on the potential suitor since that person is not dedicating themselves to Florence yet, she says "While you've been saving your neck" "I've been breaking mine for you" which means she's been holding back on moving on and seeking someone else but this person who constantly "turns her head around" just always confuses her when they never "make up their mind". It is such a relatable song and sometimes people are never sure when the "axe" just becomes to heavy to bear and it really is time to just let it fall on your potential lovers neck because they will never choose you if they were never certain about choosing you in the first place. Remember to always put them in the guillotine if you were never a first choice or if there is even a doubt about choosing you. Don't wait. Let it fall.
