Florence and the Machine -Sky Full of Song

This is my favourite Florence song, and it’s one that has always resonated with me. I do go through periods of energy and enthusiasm, often to cover up a void, but mostly actually because it’s fun, but I wear myself out. I can feel myself teetering on the brink of a breakdown, ready to collapse from exhaustion, but then I need someone to pull me back, give me a nice herbal tea and tuck me into a cosy bed so I can recover. I am incapable of doing it myself so I blaze onwards until something disastrous happens that totally floors me.

I don’t know whether this is what the song means or is getting at but I always read it that way.

And it’s beautiful, whatever your interpretation.

[Verse 1]
How deeply are you sleeping or are you still awake?
A good friend told me you’ve been staying out so late

Be careful, oh, my darling, oh, be careful what it takes
From what I’ve seen so far, the good ones always seem to break

And I was screaming at my father and you were screaming at me
And I can feel your anger from way across the sea
And I was kissing strangers, I was causing such a scene
Oh, the heart it hides such unimaginable things

[Pre-Chorus]
Grab me by my ankles, I’ve been flying for too long
I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song
And I want you so badly, but you could be anyone
I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

[Chorus]
Hold me down, I’m so tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky
Take me down, I’m too tired now
Leave me where I lie

[Verse 2]
And I can tell that I’m in trouble when that music starts to play
In a city without seasons, it keeps raining in LA
I feel like I’m about to fall, the room begins to sway
And I can hear the sirens but I cannot walk away

[Pre-Chorus]
Grab me by my ankles, I’ve been flying for too long
I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song
And I want you so badly, but you could be anyone
I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

[Chorus]
Hold me down, I’m so tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky
Take me down, I’m too tired now
Leave me where I lie

[Bridge]
I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight
I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight
And I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight
And I thought I was flying but maybe I’m dying tonight

[Chorus]
Hold me down, I’m so tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky (Shoot, shoot, shoot)
Take me down, I’m too tired now
Leave me where I lie
 (Fire)

[Chorus]
Hold me down, I’m too tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky (Shoot, shoot, shoot)
And take me down, I’m too tired now
Leave me where I lie
 (Fire)
