“Sometimes I wish for falling,Wish for the release,Wish for falling through the air,To give me some relief,Because falling’s not the problem,When I’m falling I’m in peace,It’s only when I hit the ground,It causes all the grief”.
“I’m completely in love with the world but also terrified of it. It creates some overwhelming feelings. Wanting to battle out that joy and fear is part of my music. In the beginning I was a lot younger, drunker, and more glib. I’ve learned not to hide behind a veil of irony—to talk about my work in a more honest way.” - Florence Welch for Marie Claire (June 2012 Issue)
