All This And Heaven Too Good Quality by Florence + The Machine

And the heart is hard to translate
It has a language of its own
It talks and turns in quiet sighs
In prayers and proclamations
In the grand days of (1)__________ men
And the smallest of gestures
In (2)__________ shallow gasps

But with all my education
I can't (3)________ to (4)______________ it
And the words are all escaping
Coming back all damaged
And I (5)__________ put (6)________ back in poetry
If I'd only knew how
I can't (7)________ to understand it
I would (8)________ all this and heaven too
I (9)__________ give it all if only for a moment
That I (10)__________ just understand
The (11)______________ of the word you see
'Cause I've been scrawling it forever
But it never makes (12)__________ to me at all
And it talks to me in tiptoes
And it (13)__________ to me inside
It cries out in the darkest night
And breaks in the morning light
But with all my education
I can't seem to command it
And the (14)__________ are all escaping
Come back all damaged
I would put (15)________ back in poetry
If I'd only knew how
I can't seem to understand it
And I would (16)________ all this and (17)____________ too
I (18)__________ give it all if only for a moment
That I could (19)________ understand
The (20)______________ of the (21)________ you see
'Cause I've been (22)__________________ it forever
But it never makes sense to me at all

And I would give all this and heaven too
I would give it all if (23)________ for a moment
That I could just understand
The meaning of the (24)________ you see
'Cause I've (25)________ scrawling it forever
But it (26)__________ makes sense to me at all
No words are language
It doesn't deserve such treatment
And all my stumbling phrases never amounted
To anything worth this feeling
All this heaven
Never (27)__________ describe such a feeling as I'm in
Words were (28)__________ so useful
So I'm screaming out a language
That I never knew existed before
