9 Otherworldly Quotes from Florence Welch

Get inspired!
She is the queen of all things indie and rock and her essence is pure magic. With a voice of an angel and the aura of something you can’t quite describe, Florence Welch doesn’t seem like she’s of this world. Her music and her words have settled in us and we want them to stay there. If you haven't bought her book Useless Magic: Lyrics and Poetry, I highly recommend it. 

 

Today is the author and musician’s birthday and we thought you could use a little more otherworldly. Check out the ethereal and wonderful quotes below:

 

 
1. “Sometimes I wish for falling
Wish for the release
Wish for falling through the air
To give me some relief
Because falling's not the problem
When I'm falling I'm in peace
It's only when I hit the ground
It causes all the grief”

 


 

 
2. “Sometimes I find that music is so much more attractive than love. I don’t know… It’s like some kind of euphoria, that love can’t bring to you.” 
 

 


 

3. “For someone so conflicted, who am I to give advice to anybody? It’s such a funny, grandiose idea”
 

 


 

4. “I've fallen out of favour
And I've fallen from grace
Fallen out of trees
And I've fallen on my face
Fallen out of taxis
Out of windows too
Fell in your opinion
When I fell in love with you”

 


 

 

5. “I don't want your future
I don't need your past
One bright moment
Is all I ask”

 


 


6. “This is a song for a scribbled out name
And my love keeps writing again and again
This is a song for a scribbled out name
And my love keeps writing again and again
And again and again and again and again and again and again...”
 

 


 

7. “There's green eyes in my eyes
And a lover on my mind
And I sing from the piano
Tear my yellow dress and
Cry and cry and cry
Over the love of you”

 


 


8. “I try to maintain a healthy dose of daydreaming to remain sane.”

 


 


9. “That’s all you want really
To be out of your own and consumed by another
To swim inside the skin of your lover”
