Florence + the Machine - Hurricane Drunk



No walls can keep me protected

No sleep

Nothing in between me and the rain

And you can't save me now

I'm in the grip of a hurricane

I'm gonna blow myself away



I'm going out

I'm gonna drink myself to death

And in the crowd

I see you with someone else

I brace myself

Cause I know it's going to hurt

But I like to think at least things can't get any worse



No hope

Don't want shelter

No calm

Nothing to keep me from the storm

And you can't hold me down

Cause I belong to the hurricane

It's going to blow this all away



I'm going out

I'm gonna drink myself to death

And in the crowd

I see you with someone else

I brace myself

Cause I no it's going to hurt

But I like to think at least things can't get any worse



I hope that you see me

Cause I'm staring at you

But when you look over

You look right through

Then you lean and kiss her on the head

And I never felt so alive

And so dead



I'm going out

I'm gonna drink myself to death

And in the crowd

I see you with someone else

I brace myself

Cause I no it's going to hurt



I'm going out



I'm going out

I'm gonna drink myself to death

And in the crowd

I see you with someone else

I brace myself

Cause I no it's going to hurt



I'm going out (x6)

Acerca de Hurricane Drunk

This song with gospel-influenced layers of sound is about the emotions that you feel when you have been heartbroken. This song, like many on Lungs, was written while Florence Welch the front woman and main person of Florence and the Machine, was getting over breaking up with her boyfriend – it was the first time that her heart had ever been broken. However once the record was completed, Welch found herself back in love with the same man. She told The Independent June 27, 2009, "it's difficult, because half the album is about breaking up with him!"
Welch tweeted about the song's promo: "Shooting video today, with blue skinned shangri la ladies, a Viking, A gospel choir, I'm dressed as a kabuki monk.... All in a days work really...x"
