​Various Storms & Saints

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

And the air was full,
Of various storms and saints,
Praying in the street,
As the banks began to break.

And I'm in the throes of you,
Somewhere in the belly of the beast,
But you took your toll on me,
So I gave myself over willingly.

Yeah, you got a hold on me,
I don't know how I don't just stand outside and scream,
I am teaching myself how to be free.

The monument of a memory,
You tear it down in your head,
Don't make the mountain your enemy,
Get out, get up there instead.

You saw the stars out in front of you,
Too tempting not to touch,
But even though it shocked you,
Something's electric in your blood.

And people just untie themselves,
Uncurling like flags,
If you could just forgive yourself.

But still you stumble, feet give way,
Outside the world seems a violent place.
But you had to have him and so you did.
Some things you let go in order to live.
While all around you the buildings sway,
You sing it out loud, "who made us this way?"
I know you're bleeding but you'll be okay,
Hold onto your heart, you keep it safe,
Hold onto your heart, don't give it away.

You'll find a rooftop to sing from,
I'll find a hallway to dance,
You don't need no edge to cling from,
Your heart is there, it's in your hands.

I know it seems like forever,
I know it seems like an age,
But, one day, this will be over,
I swear, it's not so far away.

And people just untie themselves,
Uncurling like flags,
If you could just forgive yourself.

But still you stumble, feet give way,
Outside the world seems a violent place.
But you had to have him and so you did.
Some things you let go in order to live.
While all around you the buildings sway,
You sing it out loud, "who made us this way?"
I know you're bleeding but you'll be okay,
Hold onto your heart, you keep it safe,
Hold onto your heart...
