Florence and the Machine – Over the Love [Recorded for The Great Gatsby]

Lyrics:

Ever since I was a child,
I’ve turned it over in my mind.
I sang by that piano, tore my yellow dress and,
Cried and cried and cried.

And I don’t wanna see what I’ve seen,
To undo what has been done.
Turn off all the lights,
Let the morning come.

Now there’s green light in my eyes,
And my lover on my mind.
And I’ll sing from the piano, tear my yellow dress and,
Cry and cry and cry,
Over the love of you.

On this champagne, drunken hope,
Against the current, all alone,
Everybody, see, I love him.

‘Cause it’s a feeling that you get,
When the afternoon is set,
On a bridge into the city.

And I don’t wanna see what I’ve seen,
To undo what has been done.
Turn off all the lights,
Let the morning come.

Now there’s green light in my eyes,
And my lover on my mind.
And I’ll sing from the piano, tear my yellow dress and,
Cry and cry and cry.

‘Cause you’re a hard soul to save,
With an ocean in the way,
But I’ll get around it,
I’ll get around it.

‘Cause you’re a hard soul to save,
With an ocean in the way,
But I’ll get around it.

Now there’s green light in my eyes,
And my lover on my mind.
And I’ll sing from that piano, tear my yellow dress and,
Cry and cry and cry and,
Over the love of you.

Cry and cry and cry and,
Over the love of you.

Cry and cry and cry and,
(I can see the green light),
(I can see it in your eyes).

(I can see the green light),
(I can see it in your eyes).
Over the love of you.
Cry and cry and cry and cry.

(I can see the green light),
(I can see it in your eyes).
(I can see the green light),
(I can see it in your eyes).

I can see the green light,
I can see it in your eyes.
I can see the green light,
I can see it in your eyes.

I can see the green light,
I can see it in your eyes.
I can see the green light,
I can see it in your eyes.

I can see the green light,
I can see it in your eyes.
I can see the green light,
I can see it in your eyes.
