breath of life lyrics – florence + the machine

breath of life

oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

i was looking for a breath of a life
for a little touch of heavenly light
but all the choirs in my head sang no oh oh oh

to get a dream of life again
a little vision of the start and the end
but all the choirs in my head sang, no oh oh oh

but i needed one more touch
another taste of heavenly rush
and i believe, i believe it’s so oh oh oh

[not in the music video]
and i needed one more touch
another taste of divine rush
and i believe, i believe it’s so oh oh oh

whose side am i on? whose side am i?
whose side am i on? whose side am i?

and the fever began to spread
from my heart down to my legs
but the room is so quiet, oh oh oh oh

and although i wasn’t losing my mind
it was a chorus so sublime
but the room is so quiet, oh oh oh

i was looking for a breath of a life
a little touch of heavenly light
but all the choirs in my head sang, no oh oh oh

[not in the music video]
to get a dream of life again
a little vision of the sun in the end
but all the choirs in my head sang, no oh oh oh

oh, oh, oh

it’s a harder way and it’s come to claim her
and i always say, we should be together
and i can see below, ’cause there’s something in here
and if you are gone, i will not belong here (belong, belong, belong)

and i started to hear it again
but this time it wasn’t the end
and the room is so quiet, oh oh oh oh

and my heart is a hollow plain
for the devil to dance again
and the room is too quiet, oh oh oh oh

i was looking for the breath of a life
a little touch of a heavenly light
but all the choirs in my head sang, no oh oh oh
