Just a Simple Soundtrack

Every once in awhile I post a song that really moves me in a way that most others don’t.  It usually has lyrics that are close to my heart.  A song that every time I listen to it I get the chills, because it seems like it was written about my life.  The one I am going to post today is “Shake It Out” by Florence and The Machine.  I absolutely love this song, it is magical.  The music video for it is pretty awesome too.  The first time I heard this song on the radio I teared up.  The experience that the woman has in the lyrics is one I am all to familiar with.  I am very familiar with the pains of a broken heart, and her words just tear at my heart strings.  She says everything in this song that I have thought, but wasn’t smart enough to put on paper.  She has a fantastic voice, and you can hear her soul in it.  I hope you guys enjoy it.  I am going to post their youtube video, and the song lyrics, because I know when I hear a song I love I want to read the words like a book to fully let it sink in.  Enjoy!!

 

 

 

“Shake It Out” by Florence and The Machine

Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play

And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong
It’s always darkest before the dawn

And I’ve been a fool and I’ve been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I’m always dragging that horse around

Our love is pastured, such a mournful sound
Tonight I’m gonna bury that horse in the ground
So I like to keep my issues strong
But it’s always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I’m gonna cut it out and then restart
‘Cause I like to keep my issues strong
It’s always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
And given half the chance would I take any of it back
It’s a fine romance but it’s left me so undone
It’s always darkest before the dawn

Oh whoa, oh whoa…

And I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t
So here’s to drinks in the dark at the end of my road
And I’m ready to suffer and I’m ready to hope
It’s a shot in the dark aimed right at my throat
Cause looking for heaven, found the devil in me
Looking for heaven, found the devil in me
Well what the hell I’m gonna let it happen to me

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa
