Lyrics for Cosmic Love by Florence + The Machine:

Verse 1
A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them
And now it's left me blind

Chorus
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

Verse 2
And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness
So darkness I became

Chorus
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

Bridge
I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

Chorus
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

Chorus
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

Song Facts

“Cosmic Love” has an ethereal yet somber sound, connoting a seemingly light-hearted approach to a melancholy subject. Welch told The Sunday Times that the song illustrates how being in love means “you give yourself up to the dark, to being blind.”

Florence also described about its creation on a defunct webpage:

“Cosmic Love” was a joke title, but it stuck. The most hungover I’ve ever been when writing a song. I went to [Isabella Summers’s] studio after having been to a party, and I was lying on the floor wanting to vomit. We were working really hard on a song and just trying to make this sh*t piano part work, and all of a sudden I hit on one note, and I’d got it. We wrote the whole song in ten minutes.
