Drumming Song

Album: Lungs (2009)
Charted: 54
  • There's a drumming noise inside my head
    That starts when you're around
    I swear that you could hear it
    It makes such an all mighty sound

    There's a drumming noise inside my head
    That throws me to the ground
    I swear that you should hear it
    It makes such an all mighty sound

    Louder than sirens
    Louder than bells
    Sweeter than heaven
    And hotter than hell

    I ran to a tower where the church bells chime
    I hoped that they would clear my mind
    They left a ringing in my ear
    But that drum's still beating loud and clear

    Louder than sirens
    Louder than bells
    Sweeter than heaven
    And hotter than hell

    Louder than sirens
    Louder than bells
    Sweeter than heaven
    And hotter than hell

    Louder than sirens
    Louder than bells
    Sweeter than heaven
    And hotter than hell

    As I move my feet towards your body
    I can hear this beat it fills my head up
    And gets louder and louder
    It fills my head up and gets louder and louder

    I run to the river and dive straight in
    I pray that the water will drown out the din
    But as the water fills my mouth
    It couldn't wash the echoes out
    But as the water fills my mouth
    It couldn't wash the echoes out

    I swallow the sound and it swallows me whole
    'Til there's nothing left inside my soul
    I'm as empty as that beating drum
    But the sound has just begun

    As I move my feet towards your body
    I can hear this beat it fills my head up
    And gets louder and louder
    It fills my head up and gets louder and louder

    There's a drumming noise inside my head
    That starts when you're around
    I swear that you could hear it
    It makes such an all mighty sound

    There's a drumming noise inside my head
    That starts when you're around
    I swear that you could hear it
    It makes such an all mighty sound

    Louder than sirens
    Louder than bells
    Sweeter than heaven
    And hotter than hell

    Louder than sirens
    Louder than bells
    Sweeter than heaven
    And hotter than hell

    As I move my feet towards your body
    I can hear this beat it fills my head up
    And gets louder and louder
    It fills my head up and gets louder and louder Writer/s: CRISPIN HUNT, FLORENCE WELCH, JAMES ELLIS FORD
