  • What?
    What?
    What?

    Sometimes I wonder if I should be medicated
    If I would feel better just slightly sedated
    A feeling comes so fast and I cannot control it
    I'm on fire, but I'm trying not to show it

    As it picks me up, puts me down
    It picks me up, puts me down
    Picks me up, puts me down
    A hundred times a day
    It picks me up, puts me down
    It chews me up, spits me out
    Picks me up, puts me down

    I'm always running from something
    I push it back, but it keeps on coming
    And being clever never got me very far
    Because it's all in my head
    And "You're too sensitive", they said
    I said, "Okay, but let's discuss this at the hospital"

    As it picks me up, puts me down
    It picks me up, puts me down
    Picks me up, puts me down
    A hundred times a day
    It picks me up, puts me down
    It chews me up, spits me out
    Picks me up, puts me down

    But I hear the music
    I feel the beat
    And for a moment
    When I'm dancing, I am free

    I hear the music
    I feel the beat (ahh)
    And for a moment
    When I'm dancing, I am free, I am free

    Is this how it is?
    Is this how it's always been?
    To exist in the face of suffering and death
    And somehow still keep singing
    Oh like Christ up on a cross
    Who died for us? Who died for what?
    Oh, don't you wanna call it off?
    But there is nothing else that I know how to do
    But to open up my arms and give it all to you

    'Cause I hear the music, I feel the beat
    And for a moment, when I'm dancing
    I am free, I am free
    I am free, I am free Writer/s: Florence Welch, Jack Antonoff
