Florence & The Machine – Delilah lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm drifting through the halls with the sunrise
(Holding on for your call)
Climbing up the walls for that flashing light
(I can never let go)

[Refrain]
Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Holding on for your call)
Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Maybe not tonight)

[Verse 2]
Now the sun is up and I'm going blind
(Holding on for your call)
Another drink just to pass the time
(I can never say no)

[Refrain]

[Pre-Chorus]
It's a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I'm calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It's a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
'Till Delilah showed me how

[Bridge]
Too fast for freedom
Sometimes it all falls down
These chains never leave me
I keep dragging them around

[Chorus]
Now I'm dancing with Delilah and her vision is mine
(Holding on for your call)
A different kind of danger in the daylight
(I can never let go)
Took anything to cut you, I can find
(Holding on for your call)
A different kind of a danger in the daylight
(Can't you let me know?)

[Verse 3]
Now it's one more boy and it's one more lie
(Holding on for your call)
Taking the pills just to pass the time
(I can never say no)

[Refrain]

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Chorus 2] (x2)
Strung up, strung out for your love
Hang in, hung up, it's so rough
I'm wrung and ringing out
Why can't you let me know?

[Pre-Chorus] (x2)

[Bridge] (x2)
