Florence & The Machine – Cosmic Love lyrics

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,

Ooooh (x8)

I took the stars from my eyes,
And then I made a map,
I knew that some how,
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 the twilight,
In the shadow of your heart,

The stars, the moon,
They have all been blown out,
You left me in the dark, (you left me in the dark)

No dawn, no day,
I'm always in this twilight,
In the shadow of your heart,

Ooooh (x8)

    This is my favorite Song By Florence + The Machine, it is the only piece of music that has ever touched me so deeply, it brought a tear to my eye. Not only does it strike me a having true feeling and emotion in it's performance but it almost completely describes my own personal love story... When I was seven years old, my family moved to a new city. I was brought to class on my first day In a new school, I was in second Grade and that's where I met her. After that moment, I couldn't look at or even think about any other girl. "A falling Star Fell from her Heart and Landed in My eye, I screamed allowed as it tore through them and now it's left me blind". It's been over twenty two years and we have yet to try our hand at a relationship, I have always loved her and she knows this but something as always held her back. I've tried to date and maintain relationships with other women but I've never been able to fully commit to them because she is always foremost on my mind. the reason is this, I've never learned how she truly feels. She won't tell me she loves me but she won't tell me that she doesn't love me, she always says "I think of you as a friend". Now, I'm one to pick apart wording and I've never asked he how she thought f me, wanted to know her feelings. But, as the song goes "The Stars, The moon, they have all blown out and she left me in the dark". I know that she cares and I know their is something there beyond a typical friendship but until I know what that is, I can't move on, "No Dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight in the shadow of her heart". Some years ago, I'd thought I'd lost her forever, "I could hear her heart Beat and I tried to find the sound But then it stopped and I was in the darkness so darkness I became". I was left bitter and alone, morning a love I wasn't even sure existed but after almost two years of silence between us, she found me again. Recently, something has changed. We've connected in a way that we never have before, we talk every night for hours, we discus everything from what we like in bed to what our lives together would be like. House, Furniture, kids, pets, Man Cave and this isn't all in good fun, it's real discussion. for the first time in over twenty two years of friendship, we are feeling each other out, exploring if this really does have the makings for something more. We are thirty years old now and I'll wait another twenty years if I have to. "I pulled the stars from my eyes and then I made a map, I knew that some how, I could find my way back, now I hear her heart beating, she's in the Darkness too. So, I'll stay in the darkness with her".

    One year ago, the person I had fallen in love with, commited suicide.
    It was such a dark love, a need, a dependance, that I didn't notice how deep I was sinking into this shadow called love, and I could only realize that I was there, once he left me all alone in the dark.
    Did he drown in the darkness he had created, and pulled me in? I know the only way to hear his heartbeat again, would be in the verge of death. This body doesn't feel anything anymore, I can't go back, and even if I still live, this isn't life.
    I just stayed in the darkness with him.

    This love came upon her suddenly and intensely. When she was with him she felt out of this world, their souls were completely intertwined. He left her but the feelings were so ingrained into her core that she couldn't forget him. She feels like she's in a dream state constantly, living in the powerful aftermath. She makes up her mind to find her way back to sanity and finds that he feels the same. They may not be able to be together but they find comfort in knowing that their love for each other is the truest kind.

    I think yes, her & her partner were very much in love & then he did something 2 devastate her. The "falling" star that made her scream, ripped, left her blind. Then she felt his love leave her and left her alone, betrayal. "I made a map" eludes that she found her personal strength to bounce back & just as she was going 2 emerge from his grasp. She hears him again, & oh no! Decides to stay with him in his "darkness", maybe drug addiction or depression or just being in love with the wrong person. The one who is so bad for you. But you can't help it. You stay. So heart achingly beautiful.

    I think that it means a girl was in love and her love one died and shes miserable and depressed and shes upset cause that person "left her in the dark" and she can't get over it so "she takes the stars from her eyes and made a map" to try to recover and understand that persons gone but she kills herself and "stays in the darkness with him/her"
