Florence and the Machine Heartlines Lyrics

(Yeahehah, yeaheahah x 6)
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,
in the entrails of the animals, their blood running through,
but in order to get to the heart, I think sometimes you have to cut through,
but you can't (you can't)
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand.
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand.
Keep it up, I know you can.
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand.
cos' I am
(yeehehah, yeehehah x2)
On the sea, on the sea, and land over land,
creeping and crawling like the sea over sand.
still I follow heartlines on your hand,
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,
I cannot be returned.
You can (x4)
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand.
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand.
Keep it up, I know you can.
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand.
(yeehehah, yeehehah x2)
What a thing to do. Oh. (yeehehah, yeehehah x2)
What a thing to choose.
But no, in some way, I'm there with you.
Up against the wall, on a Wednesday afternoon.
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand.
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand.
Keep it up, I know you can.
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand,
'cause I am
