You've Got the Love
Florence + the Machine Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've 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've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love

You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've got the love
You've 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

Sounds like she's taking about Jesus to me. I was just praying and feeling sad that I haven't been spending time with my saviour lately. Then this song came to mind, I looked up the lyrics.... "Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord I just don't care"....But you've got the love I need to see me through"
Jesus, the friend that sticks closer than a brother-(Lord) Proverbs 18:24

The song says"when food is gone you are my daily meal When friends are gone I know my saviour's love is real"-
Jesus said we should ask God the father for our daily bread-"Pray then like this:
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come,your will be done,on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
Jesus also says He is that bread.
"I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and this bread, which I will offer so the world may live, is my flesh.”John 6:51
Jesus truly loves us even when we feel like "Lord I just don't care". His love will always see us through 💕
