This song is performed by Florence + The Machine.
Old hope got stuck in your throat,
Wound it's way round your neck and caused you to choke.

Old hope made of rope, that held you tight as the chair legs broke.

When they found you hangin' in the wood, you said "At least now I don't have to be kind nor good."
"I'll be cruel and I'll be obscene."
"Tear out my tongue, 'cause I've been redeemed."

When they found you hangin' in the wood, you said "At least now I don't have to be kind nor good."
"I'll be cruel and I'll be obscene."
"Tear out my tongue, 'cause I've been redeemed."

Save my blushes for the grave, no shy glance, no coy restraints, and I won't hang my head, and I won't repent.
Won't face the wall and count to 10

5, 6, 7, 8, 9... 10

Well they tore you down and they tore out your tongue and they made you kneel for all the things that you'd done, but you wouldn't cry and you wouldn't beg, you just screamed and tore out your teeth instead.

And when they found you hangin in the wood, you said "At least now I don't have to be kind nor good."
"I'll be cruel and I'll be obscene."
"Tear out my tongue, 'cause I've been redeemed."

I don't have to sit down and behave, cause my darling I've been saved.
