feel the beat of mine



song: florence + the machine : what the water gave me.

Time it took us
To where the water was
That's what the water gave me
And time goes quicker
Between the two of us
Oh, my love, don't forsake me
Take what the water gave me

- Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones

- Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow

And oh poor Atlas
The world's a beast of a burden
You've been holding on a long time
And all this longing
And the shields are left to rust
That's what the water gave us

'Cause they took your loved ones
But returned them in exchange for you
But would you have it any other way?
Would you have it any other way?
You could have had it any other way
'Cause she's a crueller mistress
And the bargain must be made
But oh, my love, don't forget me
But I let the water take me
