So...Florence and the machine will release their new album end of octobre....but here's already a new video with a wonderful song " What the water gave me".

Time it took us
To where the water was
That's what the water gave me
And time goes quicker
Between the two of us
Oh, my love, don't forsake me
Take what the water gave me
Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones
Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
And oh poor Atlas
The world's a beast of a burden
You've been holding on a long time
And all this longing
And the shields are left to rust So lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones
Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
'Cause they took your loved ones
But returned them in exchange for you
But would you have it any other way?
Would you have it any other way?
You could have had it any other way
'Cause she's a crueller mistress
And the bargain must be made
But oh, my love, don't forget me
But I let the water take me
Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the over flow
Let the only sound
Be the over flow
Pockets full of stones
Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones
Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
That's what the water gave us



Florence + the Machine - What The Water Gave Me [Official Music Video] from Back Alley Journals on Vimeo.

I found this quote from Florence about the lyrics on her webside:

Speaking about the song, Flo said: "It's a song for the water... Because in music and art what I'm really interested in are the things that are overwhelming. The ocean seems to me to be nature's great overwhelmer.

"When I was writing this song I was thinking a lot about all those people who've lost their lives in vain attempts to save their loved ones from drowning. It's about water in all forms and all bodies. It's about a lot of things; Virginia Woolf creeps into it, and of course Frieda Kahlo, whose painfully beautiful painting gave me the title."
