How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is the third album of British indie rock Florence and the Machine, released in 2015.

The website Metacritic amounted the average score of the album to 77 (out of 100) – but we didn’t need a proof to love Florence Welch’s powerful, choir-girl/soul diva voice.

‘Between a crucifix and the Hollywood sign, we decided to get hurt

Now there’s a few things we have to burn

Set our hearts ablaze, and every city was a gift

And every skyline was like a kiss upon the lips

And I was making you a wish

And every skyline

 

How big, how blue, how beautiful

How big, how blue, how beautiful

 

And meanwhile a man was falling from space

And every day I wore your face

Like an atmosphere around me

A satellite beside me

And meanwhile a man was falling from space

As he hit the earth I left this place

Let the atmosphere surround me

A satellite beside me

 

What are we gonna do?

We’ve opened the door, now it’s all coming through

Tell me you see it too

We’ve opened our eyes and its changing the view

Oh, what are we gonna do?

We’ve opened the door, now its all coming through

 

How big, how blue, how beautiful

How big, how blue, how beautiful

 

And every city was a gift

And every skyline was like a kiss upon the lips

And I was making you a wish

And every skyline

 

And meanwhile a man was falling from space

And every day I wore your face

Like an atmosphere around me

I’m happy you’re beside me

 

What are we gonna do?

We’ve opened the door, now it’s all coming through

Till we see it too

We’ve opened our eyes and it’s changing the view

Oh, what are we gonna do?

We’ve opened the door, now it’s all coming through

 

How big, how blue, how beautiful

How big, how blue, how beautiful

How big, how blue, how beautiful

How big, how blue, how…

 

So much time on the other side

Waiting for you to wake up

So much time on the other side

Waiting for you to wake up

Maybe I’ll see you in another life

If this one wasn’t enough

So much time on the other side

 

How big, how blue, how beautiful

How big, how blue, how…’
