Time after time I think “Oh Lord what’s the use?”
Time after time I think it’s just no good
Sooner or later in life, the things you love you lose
But you got the love I need to see me through
I love how sometimes you’ll play your ipod on shuffle and rediscover a song that sounds so good, that you can’t help but obsessively wear it out and repeat it over and over again for the next two days.
That is how Florence & the Machine‘s cover of Candi Staton’s “You Got the Love” has been for me. There’s something so touching about the way Florence sings this song, it’s almost heartbreaking. Almost like she’s screaming for everyone no matter what race, sex, orientation you are.. it doesn’t matter, LOVE is important.
