Best Lyrics Ever

“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

I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow 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 this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

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.”

-Florence and the Machine

And what I take from this, and what applies to me is this:

“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.”

You know I was born of the light, but I was subject to so much darkness that I didn’t know any better and “so darkness I became.”  These lyrics are so poignant for me…because I really didn’t know any better…I was told by my Mother that I was a “bad seed” and that I was “born angry” and so I grew up pretty angry.  I became pretty “dark,” however it took me a while to figure out that I wasn’t really that person; that I was just badly abused and that I reacted because of that, and that was all.
