heartlines
florence the machine
Oh the river, oh the river, it's running free
And oh the joy, oh the joy it brings to me
But I know it'll have to drown me
Before it can breathe easy

And I've seen it in the flights of birds, I've seen it in you
The entrails of the animals, the blood running through
But in order to get to the heart
I think sometimes you'll have to cut through but you can't

We will carry
We will carry you there

Just keep following the heartlines on your head
Just keep following the heartlines on your head
Keep it up, I know you can
Just keep following the heartlines on your head
'Cause I am

On the sea, on the sea and land over land
Creeping and crawling like the sea over sand
Still I follow heartlines on your head
And this fantasy, this fallacy, this tumbling stone
Echoes of a city that's long overgrown
Your heart is the only place that I call home
Can I be returned?

You can, we can
I know you can

Just keep following the heartlines on your head
Just keep following the heartlines on your head
Keep it up, I know you can
Just keep following the heartlines on your head

What a thing to do, whoa, what a thing to choose
But know, in some way I'm there with you
Up against the wall on a Wednesday afternoon

(Just keep following the heartlines on your head)
Just keep following the heartlines on your head
Keep it up, I know you can
Just keep following the heartlines on your head
'Cause I am
