Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord I just don't care"
But you've got the love I need To see me through

Sometimes it seems that the going is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
Now and then it seems that life is just too much
But you've got the love I need to see me through

When food is gone you are my daily meal
When friends are gone I know my savior's love is real
You know it's real

You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love

Time after time I think "Oh Lord what's the use?"
Time after time I think it's just no good
Sooner or later in life, the things you love you lose
But you've got the love I need to see me through

You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love

You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love
You got the love

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord I just don't care"
But you've got the love I need to see me through

    I know you all want a meaning... But maybe what florence sings isn't about the meaning maybe its about life in believing what you believe or just letting loose. I listen to her non-stop and i just feel like i can do anything. I saw her in concert this year and only 2 words could discribe her...

    It was all about the music and sometimes that the only explanation you need.
    The. Music.

    That god has and is everything we need. And because jesus died on the cross for us, therefore the biggest expression of love that he has the love to share with all of us. So if you confess to jesus your wrong doings and ask him to be the love of your life, than no matter what you will find a way in him to make it through!

    It was our song in the beginning of our love and a year ago next month he died and i miss him more and more each day... Losing the love of your life is the worst pain a person will ever suffer and i just don't know how i get through each day

    It's about tapping in to the super-conscious mind = g o d. 'when food is gone you are my daily need' sounds completely biblical and beautiful. When it looks about as bad as it can possibly get - well, throw your hands up in the air and just give it up! Let go! You aren't in control of everything, you give, you receive so be a part of the flow. You're not on your own, even if all your friends are gone. It's just time to tap into the source and meet the true friends. Yep. Powerful meaning in this song. Absolutely uplifting. Love it!

    The look for some way of reassurance, for some meaning in life, is close to be completed when you realize you have tha capacity to love and be loved, and you get to use that capacity... And that capacity -in my humble opinion- is "empowered" by the love i´ve recieved before... From my family, my friends, and by this means, from god
