"I’ve been a fool and I’ve been blind
I can never leave the past behind”
"I think I just have a problem generally in life, of wanting more of everything — more emotion, more drama, more glitz.” - FLORENCE WELCH
"I can’t ever seem to shake the feeling that when things are really good it essentially means that things are going to go really bad. When I feel calm and settled, there is always an underlying feeling of impending doom. I don’t think that it’s healthy.” — FLORENCE WELCH
“Performing is what makes songs come alive for me. You can live through songs on stage. You never know how they are going to affect you or other people until you are performing them and they are out there. Being able to convey an emotion onstage and being able to give something is what is important.”
W LUVS BLEACH - FEBRUARY 13, 2013
"I get the fear. I have done since I was a kid, I’m quite prone to the heebie-jeebies. I’m in love with life. I want to be able to see things in 360 - my eyes aren’t big enough to fit everything in; my peripheries get in the way."

"I think it’s always been there. I’ve always sung."
"I have this sensation of being in flight all the time, but being on stage is like creating a sanctuary in which you can completely lose yourself. The bits of your personality that you keep under wraps in ordinary life, you can let them run free.”
