MOTHER
Florence + The Machine


Oh lord, won't you leave me
Leave me on my knees
'Cause I belong to the ground now
And it belongs to thee
And oh lord, won't you leave me
Leave me just like this
'Cause I belong to the ground now
I want no more than this
How I long for the older
The sun keeps burning deep
Every stone in this city keeps reminding me
Can you protect me from what I want?
The love I let in, it left me so lost
Mother, make me
Make me a big tall tree
So I can shed my leaves and let it blow through me
Mother, make me
Make me a big grey cloud
So I can rain on you things I can't say out loud
All these couples are kissing
And I can't stand the heat
I lost my shoes and left the party
I wander in the street
I put my feet into the fountain
The statues all asleep
No use wishing on the water
It grants you no relief
Mother, make me
Make me a bird of prey
So I can rise above this, let it fall away
Mother, make me
Make me a song so sweet
Heaven trembles, fallen at our feet
Oh lord, won't you leave me
Leave me on my knees
'Cause I belong to the ground now
And it belongs to thee
And oh lord, won't you leave me
Leave me just like this
'Cause I belong to the ground now
I want no more than this
Oh lord, won't you leave me
Leave me on my knees
'Cause I belong to the ground now
And it belongs to thee
Oh lord, won't you leave me
Leave me just like this
'Cause I belong to the ground now
I want no more than this
