    No dawn. No day. I'm always in this twilight.

    Something about Florence Welch overthrows me. I think it’s the raw honesty in her voice. The acoustic versions of her performances are amazingly simple, yet her voice lends a certain sense of poignancy to the song that was previously unclaimed.

    Right now I simply cannot get enough of Cosmic Love. The initial musical buildup at 1 minute 20 seconds is awesome… you get the first glimpse at the emotional intensity she’s trying to convey.  But humor me for a moment, turn your speakers high and close your eyes. Tell me the emotion at 2 minutes 34 seconds doesn’t just surge through you. It’s like a wave of butterflies right through my stomach. I hope this song never loses its nerve…


    Florence + The Machine: Cosmic Love
    A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
    I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind

    The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
    You left me in the dark
    No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
    In the shadow of your heart

    And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
    I tried to find the sound
    But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
    So darkness I became

    The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
    You left me in the dark
    No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
    In the shadow of your heart

    I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
    And knew that somehow I could find my way back
    Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
    So I stayed in the darkness with you

    The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
    You left me in the dark
    No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
    In the shadow of your heart

    The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
    You left me in the dark
    No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
    In the shadow of your heart

    This is one of my favorite songs of all time and it's my ringtone :) I'm SO glad she was nominated for a best new artist grammy! I only wish she had actually won. I know you posted this forever ago, but I stumbled across and felt like posting something :) Have a great one and take care!! Hopefully the song still has the same dramatic impact and you're doing really well. ~Kyle D. :)
