Album: How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful (2015)
  • That original lifeline
    Original lifeline
    That original lifeline

    Hey, look up
    Don't make a shadow of yourself
    Always shutting out the light
    Caught in your own creation
    Look up, look up
    It tore you open
    And oh, how much?

    Cause there's a hole where your heart lies
    And I see can it with my third eye
    And though my touch, it magnifies
    You pull away, you don't know why

    That original lifeline
    Original lifeline
    That original lifeline

    Hey, look up
    You don't have to be a ghost
    Hidden amongst the living
    You are flesh and blood
    And you deserve to be loved
    And you deserve what you are given
    And oh, how much?

    Cause there's a hole where your heart lies
    And I see can it with my third eye
    And though my touch, it magnifies
    You pull away, you don't know why

    That original lifeline
    Original lifeline
    That original lifeline
    Original lifeline

    Cause there's a hole where your heart lies
    And I see can it with my third eye
    And though my touch, it magnifies
    You pull away, you don't know why

    That original lifeline
    Original lifeline
    That original lifeline

    Cause your pain is a tribute
    The only thing you let hold you
    Well now I'm a memento
    Always there to remind you
    But your pain is a tribute
    The only thing you let hold you
    Well now I'm a memento
    Always there to remind you

    I'm the same, I'm the same
    I'm try'na change
    I'm the same, I'm the same
    I'm try'na change
    I'm the same, I'm the same
    I'm try'na change
    I'm the same, I'm the same
    I'm try'na change

    Cause there's a hole where your heart lies
    And I see can it with my third eye
    And though my touch, it magnifies
    You pull away, you don't know why

    That original lifeline
    Original lifeline
    That original lifeline

    I'm the same, I'm the same
    I'm try'na change Writer/s: Florence Leontine Mary Welch
