Song of the Day #2,655: ‘Cosmic Love’ – Florence + the Machine

florence_machineFlorence + the Machine feels like a fitting band for my Halloween Random Song of the Day. The band, and Florence Welch herself, have a gothic quality that’s appropriate for the holiday.

I’m a big fan of Florence + the Machine’s second album, Ceremonials, but it’s taken longer for their debut, Lungs, to grow on me. I don’t know if that’s an issue with me or the album, as the music seems pretty much in line with their sophomore effort.

Sometimes an artist is worth just one album’s worth of attention, no matter how good their other output.

[Verse 1]
A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them
And now it’s left me blind

[Chorus]
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

[Verse 2]
And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness
So darkness I became

[Chorus]
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

[Bridge]
I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

[Chorus]
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart
