breaking down lyrics – florence + the machine

all alone
it was always there you see
and even on my own
it was always standing next to me

i can see it coming from the edge of the room
creeping in the streetlight
holding my hand in the pale gloom
can you see it coming now?

oh, i think i’m breaking down again
oh, i think i’m breaking down

all alone
even when i was a child
i’ve always known
there was something to be frightened of

you know that i can see you coming from the edge of the room
creeping in the streetlight
holding my hand in the pale gloom
can you see it coming now?

oh, i think i’m breaking down again
oh, i think i’m breaking down

all alone
on the edge of sleep
my old familiar friend
comes and lies down next to me

and i can see you coming from the edge of the room
smiling in the streetlight
even with my eyes shut tight
i still see you coming now

oh, i think i’m breaking down again
oh, i think i’m breaking down again
oh, i think i’m breaking down again
oh, i think i’m breaking down
