Between Two Lungs

indie Soundtrack female vocalists too good for a fucking twilight sequel alternative

Florence Welch explained to the Independent why she wanted to be involved in writing for the soundtrack (Source Heavy in Your Arms Songfacts). "I thought it would be something fun to do; I'd never written a song for a soundtrack before. It's an interesting exercise as a songwriter. You're thinking about it more in a visual tone and imagining a film score, which I think is really exciting. They didn't specifically say what bit of the movie it was going to be in or anything Read more on Last.fm.

heavy in your arms
florence the machine
I was a heavy heart to carry
My beloved was weighed down
My arms around his neck
My fingers laced to crown

I was a heavy heart to carry
My feet dragged across the ground
And he took me to the river
Where he slowly let me drown

My love has concrete feet
My love's an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles
Over the waterfall

I'm so heavy, heavy
Heavy in your arms
I'm so heavy, heavy
Heavy in your arms

And is it worth the wait
All this killing time?
Are you strong enough to stand?
Protecting both your heart and mine?

Who is the betrayer?
Who's the killer in the crowd?
The one who creeps in corridors
And doesn't make a sound

My love has concrete feet
My love's an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles
Over the waterfall

My love has concrete feet
My love's an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles
Over the waterfall

I'm so heavy, heavy
Heavy in your arms
I'm so heavy, heavy
So heavy in your arms

This will be my last confession
I love you never felt like any blessing
Whispering like it's a secret
Only to condemn the one who hears it
With a heavy heart

Heavy, heavy, I'm so heavy in your arms
Heavy, heavy, I'm so heavy in your arms
Heavy, heavy, I'm so heavy in your arms
Heavy, heavy, I'm so heavy in your arms

I was a heavy heart to carry
My beloved was weighed down
My arms around his neck
My fingers laced to crown

I was a heavy heart to carry
But he never let me down
When he had me in his arms
My feet never touched the ground

I'm so heavy, heavy in your arms
Heavy, I'm so heavy in your arms
