I have compiled this playlist of Florence + The Machine songs/covers to get through the grieving stages. Why 12? I don’t know, that’s just the number I got to. Here they are:
1. Love – Bedroom Hymns.
“This is his body, this is his love. Such selfish prayers and I can’t get enough.”
2. Anger – Howl.
“I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallowed ground.”
3. Lust – Drumming Song.
“Louder than sirens, louder than bells. Sweeter than heaven and hotter than hell.”
4. Alcohol – Hurricane Drunk.
“I’m going out. I’m gonna drink myself to death.”
5. Longing – Over The Love.
“Everybody see I love him.”
6. Sadness – Cosmic Love.
” The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out. You’ve left me in the dark.”
7. Pain – Heavy In Your Arms.
“He took me to the river where he slowly let me drown.”
8. Emptiness – Sweet Nothing.
“There is a hollow in me now.// You’re giving me such sweet nothing.”
9. Truth – No Light, No Light.
“No light, no light in your bright blue eyes. I never knew daylight could be so violent.”
10. Acceptance – Never Let Me Go.
“A thousand miles down to the seabed, found a place to rest my head.”
11. Healing – Take Care.
“I know you’ve been hurt by someone else.//I’ll take care of you.//Cause I’ve loved and I’ve lost.”
12. Moving On – Shake It Out.
“And I am done with my graceless heart, so tonight I’m going to cut it out and then restart.”
