Florence & The Machine – Cosmic Love lyrics

A fallen 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 try 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 twlight,
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 twlight,
In the shadow of your heart,

Ooooh (x8)

    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.

    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.

    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"

    Someone who tears you down. Tells you they need you to help them find their way. In the end all they want it to tear you down and control you, even after you leave them, they fin a way to cast a shadow, whether it is hurting your children, anyone oe anything you love. My ex. I am living this. A tortured existence, mainly because of my children and his deer ate need to hurt or control them if can't hurt me directly. He told me he would kill me if I took " his" kids. We are and have always been possessions, but object to inflict pain and control, presented with the face of " i need you, don't leave"
