Music Crush Of The Moment

Like just about everyone else, when the song Dog Days Are Over hit the airwaves, I loved it. Nevermind that it was because the album Lungs was re-released. I suspect it hit a chord with a lot of people given the last few years.

Towards the End of 2011 a new song by Florence hit the airwaves – Shake it Out, heralding the release of a new album. Lyrically and musically I adore the new single so it was a no brainer when I was presented with the opportunity to get my hands on the new album I took it and ran.

I was completely blown away the first time I listened to it. And again the third time, and the fifth…

One moment I am belting out the lyrics to  If Only For A Night

And the only solution was to stand and fight,
And my body was bruised,
And I was set alight,
But you came over me like some holy rite,
And although I was burning,
You’re the only light
Only if for a night

The next  I am wondering how she crawled into my head with the lyrics to

No Light, No light…

You are the hole in my head
You are the space in my bed
You are the silence in between what I thought
And what I said

You are the night time fear
You are the morning when it’s clear
When it’s over you’ll start
You’re my head
You’re my heart

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can’t choose what stays and what fades away

And I’d do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
No light
Tell me what you want me to say

Through the crowd, I was crying out
And in your place there were a thousand other faces
I was disappearing in plain sight
Heaven help me, I need to make it right

You want a revelation,
You wanna get it right
But, it’s a conversation,
I just can’t have tonight
You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You want a revelation

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day,
You can’t choose what stays and what fades away

And I’d do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
No light
Tell me what you want me to say

Would you leave me,
If I told you what I’ve done?
And would you need me,
If I told you what I’ve become?
’cause it’s so easy,
To say it to a crowd
But it’s so hard, my love,
To say it to you alone

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day,
You can’t choose what stays and what fades away

And I’d do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
No light
Tell me what you want me to say

You want a revelation,
You wanna get it right
But, it’s a conversation,
I just can’t have tonight
You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You want a revelation

You want a revelation,
You wanna get it right
But, it’s a conversation,
I just can’t have tonight
You want a revelation, some kind of resolution
Tell me what you want me to say.

Go listen to the album* yourself. Then go buy it. Seriously.
