Howl

I started yesterday with an amazing little pow-wow with this lady - and she came bearing gifts! What a way to start my Wednesday. She had a couple of mixes made for me and one included a whole lot of Florence & the Machine. I had never heard of her but let me just say... I'M ADDICTED!

This has got to be my favorite song....




If you could only see
The beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free
Screaming in the dark
I howl when we're apart
Drag my teeth across your chest to taste your beating heart
My fingers claw your skin, try to tempt my way in
You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to howl
My fingers claw your skin, try to tempt my way in
You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to howl, howl

Now there's no holding back
I'm making to attack
My blood is singing with your voice I want to pour it out
The saints can't help me now
The ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground
Like some child possessed, the beast howls in my veins
Uh-huh
I want to find you, tear out all your tenderness
And howl, howl

Be careful of the curse
That falls on young lovers
It starts so soft and sweet
And turns them to hunters

Hunters, hunters
Hunters, hunters
Hunters, hunters
Hunters, hunters

The fabric of your flesh
Pure as a wedding dress
Until I wrap my self inside your arms I cannot rest
The saints can't help me now
The ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground, and howl

Be careful of the curse
That falls on young lovers
It starts so soft and sweet
And turn them to hunters

A man who's pure of heart
And says his prayers by night
May still become a wolf
When the autumn moon is bright

If you could only see
The beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free
The saints can't help me now
The ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground
