about

"This song, written by Florence Welch, from Florence and the Machine, is about being ghosted by someone. When someone suddenly stops answering your phone calls and ignores you. For us, it also seems to have some relationship to the idea of celebrity and the worship of glamour. In our video, we side-stepped even further to represent an imaginary rift in our relationship as sisters. Basically, this song is about how one small miscommunication can turn into a massive, sudden and irreparable relationship breakdown between two people."

lyrics

You need a big god
Big enough to hold your love
You need a big god
Big enough to fill you up
You keep me up at night
To my messages, you do not reply
You know I still like you the most
The best of the best and the worst of the worst
Well, you can never know
The places that I go
I still like you the most
You'll always be my favorite ghost
You need a big god
Big enough to hold your love
You need a big god
Big enough to fill you up
Sometimes I think it's gettin' better
And then it gets much worse
Is it just part of the process?
Well, Jesus Christ, it hurts
Though I know I should know better
Well, I can make this work
Is it just part of the process?
Well, Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ, it hurts
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ, it hurts
You need a big god
Big enough to hold your love
You need a big god
Big enough to fill you up
Shower your affection, let it rain on me
And pull down the mountain, drag your cities to the sea, yeah
Shower your affection, let it rain on me
Don't leave me on this white cliff
Let it slide down to the, slide down to the sea
Slide down to the, slide down to the sea
