No Light No Light
Florence + the Machine Lyrics


You are the hole in my head
You are the space in my bed
You are the silence in between
What I thought and what I said

You are the night-time fear
You are the morning when it's clear
When it's over your start
You're my head, you're my heart
No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
(No light)
Tell me what you want me to say

Through the crowded islands crying out at me
In your place there were a thousand other faces
I was disappearing in plain sight
Heaven help me I need to make it right

You want a revelation
You want to get it right
And it's a conversation
I just can't have tonight

You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You are the revelation

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to, to make you stay
No light, no light
(No light)
Tell me what you want me to say

But would you leave me
If I told you what I've done
And would you leave me
If I told you what I've become

'Cause it's so easy
To sing it to a crowd
But it's so hard, my love
To say it to you, all alone

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
Tell me what you want me to say

You want a revelation
You want to get it right
But, it's a conversation
I just can't have tonight

You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You want a revelation

You want a revelation
You want to get it right
But, it's a conversation
I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
Tell me what you want me to say

"No Light, No Light"

You are the hole in my head
You are the space in my bed
You are the silence in between
What I thought and what I said

You are the night time fear
You are the morning when it's clear
When it's over you're the start
You're my head, you're my heart

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can't choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
No light
Tell me what you want me to say

Through the crowd, I was crying out
And in your place there were a thousand other faces
I was disappearing in plain sight
Heaven help me, I need to make it right

You want a revelation,
You wanna get it right
But it's a conversation,
I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You want a revelation

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day,
You can't choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
No light
Tell me what you want me to say

Would you leave me,
If I told you what I've done?
And would you need me,
If I told you what I've become?
'Cause it's so easy,
To say it to a crowd
But it's so hard, my love,
To say it to you out loud

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day,
You can't choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
No light
Tell me what you want me to say

You want a revelation,
You wanna get it right
But it's a conversation,
I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You want a revelation

You want a revelation,
You wanna get it right
But it's a conversation,
I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation, some kind of resolution
Tell me what you want me to say.

Lyrics 😁😁😁

You are the hole in my head
You are the space in my bed
You are the silence in between
What I thought and what I said

You are the night-time fear
You are the morning when it's clear
When it's over you'll start
You're my head, you're my heart

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can't choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
(No light)
Tell me what you want me to say

Through the crowd I was crying out and
In your place there were a thousand other faces
I was disappearing in plain sight
Heaven help me I need to make it right

You want a revelation
You want to get it right
And it's a conversation
I just can't have tonight

You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You want a revelation

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can't choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to, to make you stay
No light, no light
(No light)
Tell me what you want me to say

But would you leave me
If I told you what I've done
And would you leave me
If I told you what I've become

'Cause it's so easy
To say it to a crowd
But it's so hard, my love
To say it to you out loud

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can't choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
Tell me what you want me to say

You want a revelation
You want to get it right
But, it's a conversation
I just can't have tonight

You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You want a revelation

You want a revelation
You want to get it right
But, it's a conversation
I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
Tell me what you want me to say

Well done 😁👌

I mostly agree with the previous comments, however to me this song is about having cheated, and not being able to tell your person that you did, because you don’t want to lose him/ her, and that person becoming utterly disappointed in you.

"You are the hole in my head.
You are the space in my bed.
You are the silence in between
What I thought and what I said”

She misses him, only a space in her mind and her bed where he used to be, because there is “no light” of love in his eyes for her anymore, but disappointment. Because he has asked “what is wrong?” And she thinks “I cheated on you and I’m sorry” but says, “Everything is fine”. And in this silence between thought and word, he is, the man she cheated on, but does not want to lose him as well, because he means so much to her that she can’t let go, and he suspects it.

"You want a revelation.
You want to get right.
But it's a conversation
I just can't have tonight,"

And so he keeps asking what is wrong to make certain, to see if it is something other than cheating, to see if desperately he did something wrong on his own and he can make it right, hoping, because he still wants to believe in her and love her, but she “doesn’t want to have this conversation”. And in this answer, he becomes bitterly certain, and the light of love and trust in his eyes for her goes out.

“Would you leave me,
If I told you what I've done?
And would you leave me,
If I told you what I've become”

means this, “would you leave me if I told you I went with someone else, I’ve become a betrayer? I still don’t want to lose you from my life” and

“I’d do anything to make you stay, so tell me what you want me to say” means “to somehow explain it to you so that you stay, because I can’t choose what stays or fades away, I can’t erase what I did last night, but if I could choose to, I would”

I also based it on the video clip, since at the ending, another man is shown to hug and kiss her, to the suffering of the voodoo man (the cheated on).

You are the hole in my head
You are the space in my bed
You are the silence in between
What I thought and what I said

You are the night-time fear
You are the morning when it's clear
When it's over your start
You're my head, you're my heart

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
(No light)
Tell me what you want me to say

Through the crowded islands crying out at me
In your place there were a thousand other faces
I was disappearing in plain sight
Heaven help me I need to make it right

You want a revelation
You want to get it right
And it's a conversation
I just can't have tonight

You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You are the revelation

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to, to make you stay
No light, no light
(No light)
Tell me what you want me to say

But would you leave me
If I told you what I've done
And would you leave me
If I told you what I've become

'Cause it's so easy
To sing it to a crowd
But it's so hard, my love
To say it to you, all alone

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
Tell me what you want me to say

You want a revelation
You want to get it right
But, it's a conversation
I just can't have tonight

You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You want a revelation

You want a revelation
You want to get it right
But, it's a conversation
I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
Tell me what you want me to say

SHE HOLDS THAT NOTE FOR 13 SECONDS HOLY CRAP I love her

Wagner Voss

Actually she can hold for up to 27 seconds.

If you think that's impressive, listen to Iron Maiden's "Hallowed be thy name" live in the 1980's.

I've spent, no joke, the last 3 years looking for this comment because I couldn't remember the exact words. And then this video appeared on my recommended after having listened to F+TM's performance at the Albert Hall. And now I'm freaking out a little because all it took was a global pandemic, murder hornets and a handful of natural disasters for me to finally find it, maybe it's the universe way to let me part in peace before the years over?
