Florence & The Machine — Only If For The Night lyrics

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

Then 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 bruised and
I was set alight,
But you came over me like some holy rite,
And although I was burning,
You're the only light
Only if for a night

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 bruised and
I was set alight,
But you came over me like some holy rite,

And although I was burning,
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.
Yeyeyeyeye-yeyeyeyeye-ahhaaaoooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeyeye-yeyeyeyeyeye-ahhaaaoooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeyeye-yeyeyeyeyeye-ahhaaaoooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeyeye-yeyeyeyeyeye-ahhaaaoooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeyeye-yeyeyeyeyeye-ahhaaaoooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeyeye-yeyeyeyeyeye-ahhaaaoooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeyeye-yeyeyeyeyeye-ahhaaaoooh.
Only if for a night.
Yeyeyeyeye-yeyeyeyeyeye-ahhaaaoooh.
Only if for a night
