Spectrum
Florence + the Machine Lyrics


When we first came here
We were cold and we were clear
With no colors on our skin
We were light and paper-thin

And when we first came here
We were cold and we were clear
With no colors on our skin
'Till you let the spectrum in
Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again

And when we come for you
We dressed up all in blue
With the ocean in our arms
Kissing eyes and kissing palms

When it's time to pray
We dressed up all in gray
With metal on our tongues
And silver in our lungs

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we'll never be afraid again

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we'll never be afraid again

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we'll never be afraid again

And when we come back we'll be dressed in black
And you'll scream our names aloud
And we won't eat and we won't sleep
We'll drag bodies from their graves

So say my name
And every color illuminates
And we are shining
And we'll never be afraid again
Say my name
As every color illuminates

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we'll never be afraid again

Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we'll never be afraid again

Say my name
We are shining
Say my name
Say my name
And we will never be afraid again

Synchronicity 12:16

Her presence is commanding and undeniable. I've long had her on my "radar" and known a few songs in passing - but, I never really devoted her the attention I now realize she deserves. She just came on a playlist at random, and I'm about 5 songs deep atm. Her "Oomph", or the soul and essence she infuses her tremendous voice has changed my entire energy. I feel more alive, more present, more eternal simply from absorbing her magic, if that makes sense?

I don't mean "literal" magic - but, that special, rare "extra something" she delivers.

I only skimmed the first few comments, and apologize if I misread, but were people criticizing her looks? I mean, everyone is free to think/say what they believe/perceive - but, even well before I started to really notice her raw, authentic, powerhouse vocals/lyrics/vibe, I've been an appreciatior if her unique style and distinctive, unconventional, prerapaelite/vintage aesthetic. I prefer people with a bit of character and their own unique ways of "expression"; from her porcelain complexion to her bold crimson hair and her (imo) flawlessly executed retro looks/fashion - omg, it's so captivating to me!

But, I'm a sucker for all things vintage or vintage inspired.

She just seems like a cool, individualistic spirit with explosive talent that is rare these days. I don't judge anyone for marketing themselves in a more overtly sexual way, but it's refreshing to come across more refined, elegant sensuality. I'm not a dude, though, so I'm speaking from a "girl crush" POV, haha.

Different strokes... Peace 💜🌟✌️

SPECTRUM

When we first came here
We were cold and we were clear
With no colours in our skin
We were light and paper's thin
And when we first came here
We were cold and we were clear
With no colours in our skin
Until we let the spectrum in
Say my name
And every colour illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again
Say my name
As every colour illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again
Say my name
As every colour illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again
And when we come for you
We'll be dressed up all in blue
With the ocean in our arms
Kiss your eyes and kiss your palms
And when it's time to pray
We'll be dressed up all in grey
With metal on our tongues
And silver in our lungs
Say my name
And every colour illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again
Say my name
As every colour illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again
Say my name
As every colour illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again
And when we come back we'll be dressed in black
And you'll scream my name aloud
And we won't eat and we won't sleep
We'll drag bodies from the ground
So say my name
And every colour illuminates
And we are shining
And we'll never be afraid again
Say my name
As every colour illuminates
Say my name
As every colour illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again
Say my name
As every colour illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again
Say my name
We are shining
Say my name
Say my name
And we will never be afraid again

I only found about Florence in 2016 by a coworker in a lab. We used to listen to pandora all day in a clean room. Phones in plastic bags.

I do really think that this is her best era but when I remember when she talked about how she was still battling against drugs it makes me see all so different. She was brilliant in this music video, but I can't stop thinking about how she was suffering inside bc of that. I come to the conclusion: everything is not what it seems, there's always something behind, a mental war, a pain in the heart, a human being discovering life, I'm so proud of her in her overcome, pure admiration.
