Oh, the kingGone mad within his sufferingCalled the end for releaseSomeone cure that of his griefHis just sonCut down, yet the battle wonOh, what is it worthWhen all that's left is hurt?Like the stars chase the sunOver the glow hill, I will certainly conquerBlood is to run deepSome things never sleepSuddenly I'm overcomeDissolving favor the setup sunLike a boat into oblivion'Cause you're control me awayNow you have actually me ~ above the runThe damage is already doneCome on, is this what girlfriend want?'Cause you're steering me away
Oh, the queen of peaceAlways go her finest to pleaseIt isn't any kind of useSomebody's gotta loseLike a long screamOut there, constantly echoingOh, what is the worth?All that's left is hurtLike the stars chase the sunOver the glowing hill, I will certainly conquerBlood is running deepSome things never sleepSuddenly I'm overcomeDissolving like the setting sunLike a boat into oblivion'Cause you're steering me awayNow you have me top top the runThe damage is currently doneCome on, is this what girlfriend want?'Cause you're steering me away
And mine love is no goodAgainst the fortress the it make of youBlood is running deepSorrow that you keepSuddenly I'm get over (Overcome)Dissolving like the setup sun (The setup sun)Like a watercraft into oblivion'Cause you're control me awayNow you have me on the operation (On the run)The damage is currently done (Already done)Come on, is this what you want?'Cause you're driving me awayTo provide yourself over to another bodyThat's all you want reallyTo be out of her own and consumed by anotherTo swim inside the skin of her loverNot to have to breathe, no to have to thinkBut you can't live ~ above love; salt water's no drink

Speaking about its development to Jo Wiley (BBC), Florence says:

This song was written with Markus Dravs, at a time when he was gaining me to create triumphant songs about overcoming things yet I still no in the ideal place. We got to a various kind of triumph v struggle, fairly than pretending every little thing was fine.

It watch details the enduring of a mighty king and also queen who have actually lost their child in battle, even though they quiet won; that is a bitter-sweet victory. Florence compares her experiencing in her relationship to the imperial defeat called on the song.

Florence Welch wrote a poem to monitor the music video.

During the performance at brother Summer Time festival, the song featured prolonged outro and also choreography by Holly Blakey. Blakey had actually previously choreographed both the “Delilah” and also “Third Eye” music videos.

When rolling stones inquiry Florence why ‘A the majority of the song on the brand-new album are about being in a partnership with someone that is driving you away’ she answered:

I had to experience it. Ns wouldn’t great it top top someone, however when you make something the end of it, that’s what that was all for, i guess. The songs become these talismans, small spells the you’ve written that are just for yourself. And you can lug them v you.
