Only If For A Night

Only If For A Night

Florence + the Machine

And I had a dream about my old school
And she was there all pink and gold
And glittery I threw my arms around her legs
Came to weeping (came to weeping)
Came to weeping (came to weeping)

And I heard your voice as clear as day
And you told me I should concentrate
It was all so strange and so surreal
That a ghost should be so practical

Only if for a night

And the only solution was to stand and fight
And my body was loosing all the satellite
But you came over me like some holy life
And I know how this works, you're the only light

Only if for a night

And the grass was so green against my new clothes
And I did cartwheels in your honor
Dancing on tiptoes my own secret ceremonials
Before the service began
In the graveyard, doing handstands

And I heard your voice as clear as day
And you told me I should concentrate
It was all so strange and so surreal
That a ghost should be so practical

Only if for a night
And the only solution was to stand and fight

And my body was loosing all the satellites
But you came over me like some holy life
And I know how this works, you're the only light
Only if for a night

My doe my dear, my darling,
Tell me what all this sighing's about
Tell me what all this sighing's about

And I heard your voice as clear as day
And you told me I should concentrate
It was all so strange and so surreal
That a ghost should be so practical

Only if for a night
(Ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ah-ha-ah-ooh)
Only if for a night
(Ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ah-ha-ah-ooh)
Only if for a night
(Ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ah-ha-ah-ooh)
Only if for a night
(Ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ah-ha-ah-ooh)
Only if for a night

(Ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ah-ha-ah-ooh)
Only if for a night
(Ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ah-ha-ah-ooh)
Only if for a night
(Ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ah-ha-ah-ooh)
Only if for a night
(Ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ye-ah-ha-ah-ooh)
