The third eye is the eye of wisdom. A Hindu and Buddhist concept, it relates to a psychic awareness linked to extra-sensory perception and out of body experiences:
There's a hole where your heart lies And I can see it with my third eye
Florence Welch is addressing herself having retreated into her shell after having had her heart burnt by a boyfriend, with whom she had an unhealthy relationship.
Fans at Florence & The Machine's London concert on March 4, 2015 were treated to an early preview of this song. Welch told the crowd she originally wrote the track for someone else before she realized it was actually about her.
Florence Welch addresses herself:
You deserve to be loved. And you deserve what you are given.
Welch told NME: "When you reach a level of fame and attention, it can make you feel quite unworthy. To be compelled, to need that catharsis and exorcism, there's obviously going to be an underlying dissatisfsction.. it was trying to learn to be just happier in my own skin."
Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" was just a minor hit when it was released in 1968, but a 2002 remix made the song a global smash, taking it to #1 in a number of countries, including Australia and the UK.
