Mother

This song is by Florence + the Machine and appears on the album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful (2015).

Oh, lord, won't you leave me?
Leave me on my knees.
'Cause I belong to the ground, now,
And it belongs to thee.

And, oh, lord, won't you leave me?
Leave me just like this,
'Cause I belong to the ground, now,
I want no more than this.

And how I long for the autumn,
The sun keeps burning me,
Every stone in this city,
Keeps reminding me, oh.

Can you protect me,
From what I want
The love I let in, it left me so lost.

Mother, make me, make me a big, tall tree,
So I can shed my leaves, and let it blow through me.
Mother, make me, make me a big, grey cloud,
So I can rain on you things I can't say out loud.

All these couples are kissing,
And I can't stand the heat.
I lost my shoes and left the party,
I wander in the street.

I put my feet into the fountain,
The statues all asleep,
No use wishing on the water,
It grants you no release.

Mother, make me, make me a bird of prey,
So I can rise above this, let it fall away.
Mother, make me, make me a song so sweet,
Heaven trembles, falling at our feet.

Oh, lord, won't you leave me?
Leave me on my knees.
'Cause I belong to the ground, now,
And it belongs to thee.

And, oh, lord, won't you leave me?
Leave me just like this,
'Cause I belong to the ground, now,
I want no more than this.

Oh, lord, won't you leave me?
Leave me on my knees.
'Cause I belong to the ground, now,
And it belongs to thee.

And, oh, lord, won't you leave me?
Leave me just like this,
'Cause I belong to the ground, now,
I want no more than this.
