South London Forever Lyrics

South London Forever - Florence + The Machine

Producer:Emile Haynie/Florence Welch/Brett Shaw

 

When I go home alone I drive past

The place where I was born

And the places that I used to drink

 

Young and drunk and stumbling

In the street outside the joiner's arms

Like foals unsteady on their feet

 

With the art students and the boys in bands

High on E and holding hands with

Someone that I just met

 

I thought it doesn't get better than this

 

There can be nothing better than this

 

Better than this

 

We climbed onto the roof of the museum

And someone made love in the grass

 

And I forgot my name

 

On the way

Back to my mother's house

 

With your black pool eyes

And your bitten lips the world is

At your fingertips

It's doesn't get

 

Better than this

 

What else could be better than this

 

Oh do you know what I have seen

 

I have seen the fields a flame

And everything I ever did

 

Was just another way to scream your name

 

Over and over and over and over again

 

Over and over and over and over again

 

And we're just children wanting children of our own

I want a space to watch things grow

But did I dream too big do

I have to let it go

What if one day there is no such thing as snow

 

Oh God what do I know

 

And I don't know anything

 

Except that green is so green

 

And there's a special kind of sadness that seems

To come with spring

 

Oh do you know I have seen

 

I have seen the fields aflame

And everything I ever did was

Just another way to scream your name

 

Over and over and over and over again

 

Over and over and over and over again

 

Oh do you know what I have seen

 

I have seen the fields a flame

 

But everything I ever did was just

 

Another way to scream your name
