"Cosmic Love" as written by Florence Leontine Mary Welch and Isabella Janet Florentina Summers....
A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
So darkness I became

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

    General CommentHonestly I don't think this song is so much about being in love as it is about being in love unhappily.
    I heard this the first time on the radio, and the radiowoman said that the singer wrote this song while she was living with her boyfriend.
    To me, it's more about staying with someone even though you don't really want to, but you can't leave him/her for any number of reasons.

    "I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
    And knew that somehow I could find my way back
    Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
    So I stayed in the darkness with you"

    Maybe it means that she stayed with him, but had a backup plan if some day she couldn't take it no more. :)
    Just my interpretation. Definetely think there's some sort of dark/corrupting vibe to the song. Absolutely beautiful! One of the most touching songs I've ever heard.
