delilah florence and the machine

Pour ce sixième chapitre de The Odyssey (revoir tous les autres clips), Florence + The Machine a décidé de reprendre l’histoire de l’une des « tentatrices » de la Bible hébraïque prénommée Delilah. Cette dernière a été envoyée pour découvrir le secret de la force de Samson, un des juges d’Israël.
Le clip musical est truffé de références bibliques avec une Florence Welch dansant en transe.

Les paroles de la chanson

Drifting through the halls with the sunrise
Holding on for your call
Climbing up the walls for that flashing light
I can never let go
Cause I’m gonna be free and I’m gonna be fine
Holding on for your call
Cause I’m gonna be free and I’m gonna be fine
Maybe not tonight

Now the sun is up and I’m going blind
Holding on for your call
Another drink just to pass the time
I can never say no
Cause I’m gonna be free and I’m gonna be fine
Holding on for your call
Cause I’m gonna be free and I’m gonna be fine
But maybe not tonight

It’s a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I’m calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It’s a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
’till Delilah showed me how

Too fast for freedom
Sometimes it all falls down
These chains never leave me
I keep dragging them around

Now I’m dancing with Delilah and her vision is mine
Holding on for your call
A different kind of danger in the daylight
I can never let go
Took anything to cut you I can find
Holding on for your call
A different kind of a danger in the daylight
Can’t you let me know

Now it’s one more boy and it’s one more line
Holding on for your call
Taking the pills just to pass the time
I can never say no
Cause I’m gonna be free and I’m gonna be fine
Holding on for your call
Cause I’m gonna be free and I’m gonna be fine
But maybe not tonight

It’s a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I’m calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It’s a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
’till Delilah showed me how

It’s a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I’m calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It’s a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
’till Delilah showed me how

Now I’m dancing with Delilah and her vision is mine
Holding on for your call
A different kind of danger in the daylight
I can never let go
Took anything to cut you I can find
Holding on for your call
A different kind of a danger in the daylight
Can’t you let me know

Strung up, strung out for your love
Hang in, hung up, it’s so rough
I’m rung and ringing out
Why can’t you let me know

Strung up, strung out for your love
Hang in, hung up, it’s so rough
I’m rung and ringing out
Why can’t you let me know

It’s a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I’m calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It’s a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
’till Delilah showed me how

It’s a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I’m calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It’s a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
’till Delilah showed me how

Too fast for freedom
Sometimes it all falls down
These chains never leave me
I keep dragging them around

Too fast for freedom
Sometimes it all falls down
These chains never leave me
I keep dragging them around
