Moderation - Florence + The Machine




The Experience: You think you need it, you think you want love. You wouldn't want it if you knew what it was... Love hurts...

Music video: Still waiting.

The Meaning of Moderation: It would be easier if you could love in moderation - want me to love you in moderation well, don't you know, I wish I could. But love isn't tame - but the feeling is all or nothing. You can't play god with love - bow your head in the house of God and little girl who do you think you are? Moderation explores the mess that love is... and leaves a lot of questions unanswered. You need love. You need validation. You need passion. But... Is love selfish? I took everything I could. Does love have to hurt? I'm still tryna figure out if it always, always, always has to hurt. Is love worth it? I just can't win (can't hold it in) 'cause I don't see the worth. 

Ask yourself: You can't put love in a box. Can you commit to it?

Soundtrack: - (2019)

LYRICS:


Want me to love you in moderation
Do I look moderate to you?
Sip it slowly and pay attention
I just have to see it through
You got me looking for validation
Passion's new
Want me to love you in moderation
Well, who do you think you're talking to?

Then bow your head in the house of God
And little girl, who do you think you are?
You think you need it, you think you want love
You wouldn't want it if you knew what it was
Moderation
Moderation
Moderation (Ooh)

I've never made it with moderation
No, I've never understood
All the feeling was all or nothing
And I took everything I could
Can't hold it back, I can't take the tension
Oh, I'm trying to be good
Want me to love you in moderation
Well, don't you know, I wish I could

Then bow your head in the house of God
And little girl, who do you think you are?
You think you need it, you think you want love
You wouldn't want it if you knew what it was
Moderation
Moderation
Moderation

Girl, you better learn (I just can't win)
Can't hold it in (Can't hold it in)
And girl, you better learn (I just can't win)
And I just can't win (Can't hold it in)
'Cause I don't see the worth (I just can't win)
I don't see the worth
And I'm still tryna figure out if it
Always, always, always has to hurt
(Ah...)

You want love
Moderation
Moderation
Moderation
Moderation
