Three-Day Lyrical Challenge (Day 1)

Hey, everyone!

I want to thank the lovely Sara from Bibliophagist. 💜 Back in August, she tagged me. And I’ve been meaning to do this post but simply forgot.

 

The rules are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Today is day 1 of this challenge, and I can’t wait to start. I rarely talk about my musical love. I typically stay with the literary variety.

Not many people know that I adore Florence + the Machine. Several of her songs have helped me through some tough times. So I’m excited to share my favourite song, Seven Devils. It’s haunting, endearing, and uplifting all at once. I’ll never stop listening to it. I hope you enjoy!

Holy water cannot help you down
Hours and armies couldn’t keep me out
I don’t want your money
I don’t want your crowd
See I have to burn
Your kingdom down
Holy water cannot help you now
See I’ve had to burn your kingdom down
And no rivers and no lakes can put the fire out
I’m gonna raise the stakes, I’m gonna smoke you out
Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in my house
See they were there when I woke up this morning
I’ll be dead before the day is done
Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in your house
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
I’ll be dead before the day is done
Before the day is done
And now all your love will be exorcised
And we will find you saying it’s to be better now
And it’s an even sum
It’s a melody
It’s a battle cry
It’s a symphony
Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in my house
See they were there when I woke up this morning
I’ll be dead before the day is done
Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in your house
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
And I’ll be dead before the day is done
Before the day is done
Before the day is done
Before the day is done
They can keep me high
‘Til I tear the walls
‘Til I save your heart
And I take your soul
And what have we done?
Can I be undone?
In the evil heart
In the evil soul
Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in your house
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
I’ll be dead before the day is done
Before the day is done

Tag Time!

I don’t want anyone to feel obligated to do this tag. If you want to do so, go a head. I’d love to see which lyrics you choose. If not, I’m fine with that as well. And again, if I haven’t tagged you, you can do it either way. I don’t want to exclude anyone.
