Music Monday: Cosmic Love

music

It’s Music Monday!! Today the song I’m telling you about is Cosmic Love by Florence + the Machine. She has an amazing, strong and rich voice and the song itself is beautiful. The words are found below.  My interpretation of the song is that it is about forbidden love- the kind that pulls you into a dark deep depression, potentially an affair of some sort. Or possibly being in love with a person that has such sadness/depression and darkness that they just drag you right down with them. Especially the part of the song where she almost sees her way out, she makes a map, but then hears him there in the dark and chooses to stay.  After the song lyrics is an amazing acoustic version of the song.

 

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 my eyes and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beats, 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
