"And oh my love remind me, what was it that I said? I can't help but pull the earth around me, to make my bed, And oh my love remind me, what was it that I did? Did I drink too much? Am I losing touch? Did I build this ship to wreck?"<3
Florence Welch...she hit the nail on the head. This is the exact feeling I get whenever she sings. Like the air has been sucked out of the room. Completely overwhelming and all-encompassing.
Realising I do have these two extreme sides in my character. One side is quiet and nurturing and calm, then I have a very self-destructive, chaotic, impulsive side. They contradict each other and I guess the album was a way of trying to make sense of that and bring things back together. — Florence Welch talks about “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful”
