Howl - Florence And The Machine

If you could only see the beast you've made of me

I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free

Screaming in the dark, I howl when we're apart

Drag my teeth across your chest to taste your beating heart

My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in

You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to howl

My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in

You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to

Howl, howl

Howl, howl

Now there's no holding back, I'm making to attack

My blood is singing with your voice, I want to pour it out

The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound

I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground

Like some child possessed, the beast howls in my veins

I want to find you and tear out all of your tenderness

And howl, howl

Howl, howl

Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers

Starts so soft and sweet and turns them into hunters

Hunters, hunters, hunters

Hunters, hunters, hunters

The fabric of your flesh, pure as a wedding dress

Until I wrap myself inside your arms I cannot rest

The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound

I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground

And howl

Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers

Starts so soft and sweet and turns them into hunters

A man who's pure of heart and says his prayers by night

May still become a wolf when the autumn moon is bright



If you could only see the beast you've made of me

I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free

The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound

I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground
