"Make Up Your Mind" as written by Thomas Edward Percy Hull and Florence Leontine Mary Welch....
I never thought I'd be a killer
'Cause there's so much to lose
But if I can't drink the water
What else can I do
And although the axe is heavy
It just sits in my hands
While you're changing like the current
Not a shore on land

Every time I try to bring it down
You always turn my head around

Make up your mind
Let me leave or let me love you
While you've been saving your neck
I've been breaking mine for you
The power is on, the guillotine hums
My back's to the wall, go on, let it fall
Make up your mind
Before I make it up for you

I never thought that I'd be facing
A sea that's bluer than the tide
Now my knees are shaking
And I can't look in your eyes

But if you're gonna make me do it
How'd you want it done
Is it best to sip it slowly
Or drink it down in one

Every time I try to bring it down
You always turn my head around, oh

Make up your mind
Let me leave or let me love you
While you've been saving your neck
I've been breaking mine for you
The power is on, the guillotine hums
My back's to the wall, go on, let it fall
Make up your mind
Before I make it up for you

The executioner's within me
And he comes blindfold ready
Sword in hand
And arms so steady

Every time I try to bring it down
You always turn my head around
But every time I try to bring it down
You always turn my head around

Make up your mind
Let me leave or let me love you
While you've been saving your neck
I've been breaking mine for you
The power is on, the guillotine hums
My back's to the wall, go on, let it fall
Make up your mind
Before I make it up for you

Make up your mind
Let me leave or let me love you
While you've been saving your neck
I've been breaking mine for you
The power is on, the guillotine hums
My back's to the wall, go on, let it fall
Make up your mind
Before I make it up for you

    Song Meaning"Let me leave or let me love you".

    The singer is trying to end a relationship, but every time they come close, the other person does something to make them change their mind. But whatever it is that they do, the singer still longs for more from them.

    "While you've been saving you neck
    I've been breaking mine for you"

    She is trying her hardest to save their relationship but the other person is going to have to do something soon or else she'll leave.

    "Make up you mind
    Before I make it up for you."

    The other person needs to truly decide to be with her--to fully commit. Or else she'll have to end the relationship b/c she's at the end of her rope with it.

    Great song!
