“We Float” by PJ Harvey

“I was in need of help, heading to black out ’til someone told me run on in honey before somebody blows your goddam’ brains out.”

We wanted to find love
We wanted success
Until nothing was enough
Until my middle name was excess
And somehow I lost touch
When you went out of sight
When you got lost into the city
Got lost into the night

I was in need of help
Heading to black out
‘Til someone told me run on in honey
Before somebody blows your goddam’ brains out
You shop-lifted as a child
I had a model’s smile
You carried all my hopes
Until something broke inside

But now we float
Take life as it comes

So will we die of shock?
Die without a trial
Die on Good Friday
While holding each other tight
This is kind of about you
This is kind of about me
