Heavy In Your Arms

This is one of the most dark and metaphorical songs I have ever heard. It is also one of my favourite songs. Heavy in Your Arms, by Florence and the Machine, is a song that was specifically written for the Twilight:Eclipse film and accompanying soundtrack. I do not remember exactly where in the film this song was played because it has been that long since I have seen the film (and frankly, Eclipse was my least favourite). Heavy in Your Arms is such a powerful song, both vocally and instrumentally and it paints a picture that allows the listener to feel the pain that the song emulates. Whenever I listen to this song, I envision a person who has demons within that begin to destroy their relationship. Even though they have these problems, their partner continues to hold on and love them in the best way that they can. Even though it is a sad song, there is a hint of happiness from the fact that there is an endless hope and love that Florence seems to be singing about. It kind of makes you think of Edward and Bella’s eternal vampire love (really, not really). The music video for this song is just as dark, yet meaningful. This song will make you think and it may evoke emotions from within. Although this song may not spark everyone’s listening interests, it is still a beautifully dark song that can be loved.
