Florence & The Machine – Between Two Lungs

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that carried me
The sigh that blew me forward

‘Cause it was trapped
Trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs

And my running feet could fly
Each breath screaming
We are all too young to die

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that passed from you to me
That flew between us as we slept
That slipped from your mouth into mine it crept

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that passed from you to me
That flew between us as we slept
That slipped from your mouth into mine it crept

‘Cause it was trapped
Trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs

Gone are all the days of begging
The days of theft
No more gasping for a breath
The air filled me head to toe
And I can see the ground far below
I have this breathe and I hold it tight
And I keep it in my chest with all my might
I pray to god this breath will last
As it pushes past my lips as I…

 

I played this song over and over – at least 5 times – through my recent half marathon. The first time through, I was only at about mile 4, and I felt so much release with the words. Great song. Great race.

One thought on “Florence & The Machine – Between Two Lungs

  1. I found the Dog Days are Over was my unexpectedly great running song.

    The dog days are over
    The dog days are done
    The horses are coming
    So you better run

    Run fast for your mother and fast for your father
    Run for your children for your sisters and brothers
    Leave all your love and your longing behind you
    Can’t carry love with you if you want to survive

    The dog days are over
    The dog days are done
    Can you hear the horses
    ‘Cause here they come
