You've Got the Love
Florence + the Machine Lyrics


Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying, "Lord I just don't care"
But you've got the love I need
To see me through

Sometimes it seems the going is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
Now and then it seems that life is just too much
But you've got the love I need to see me through

When food is gone you are my daily meal, oh
When friends are gone I know my savior's love is real
You know it's real

'Cause you've got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love

Time after time I think, "Oh Lord what's the use?"
Time after time I think it's just no good
'Cause sooner or later in life, the things you love you lose
But you've got the love I need to see me through

You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love

You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
'Cause I know I can count on you, oh
Sometimes I feel like saying, "Lord I just don't care"
But you've got the love I need to see me through

@Kieran Brooks
What you think was the original wasn't the original.
The original was released in 1986:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFgbtb_qozM
[ Apparently Candi Staton sang it as an acappella and never knew it was being recorded, so was surprised when it turned up as a single ]

The version(s) most of us ravers know is 1991, using Frankie Knuckles' "Your Love"
[ there are 2 slightly different versions of this version. The keyboard sound is different ]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpqrM9TPFXc
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2f_x27Kk2qs

I agree, this Florence version IS awful and I really get wound up when people talk about the 'original' version being the 1997 limp-wristed remix from The Source or, even worse, this wailing attempt by Florence.
As far as I am concerned, the 1991 version(s) are the original, even though there is a version 5 years before that.

She sings it so easily that we forget how difficult this song is

Drk Choco

we?

Jennifer Walden

Not to knock Adele, but Florence's voice and ethereal style put her in a class of her own. I don't understand why she isn't bigger globally!

David Potkins

And so beautiful...
