Take That - The Flood Lyrics




Standing on the edge of forever,
At the start of whatever,
Shouting love at the world.
Back then we were like cavemen,
But we map the moon and the stars,
Then we forgave them.

We will meet you where the lights are,
The defenders, of the faith we are.
Where the thunder turns around they’ll run so hard we’ll tear the ground away.

You know no one dies, in these love drowned eyes,
Through our love drowned eyes, we’ll watch you sleep tonight.

Although no one understood we were holding back the flood,
Learning how to dance the rain.
We were holding back the flood they said we’d never dance again.

Bleeding, but none of us leaving,
Watch your mouth son or you’ll find yourself floating home.
Here we come now on a dark star, seeing demons, not what we are.
Tiny minds and eager hands will try to strike but now will end today.

There’s progress now where there once was none, where there once was none, then everything came along
Although no one understood, we were holding back the flood learning how to dance the rain.
There was more of them than us now they’ll never dance again.

Although no one understood there was more of them than us learning how to dance the rain,
We were holding back the flood they said we’d never dance again.

We will meet you where the lights are,
The defenders, of the faith we are.
Where the thunder turns around they’ll run so hard we’ll tear the ground away.

Although no one understood, there was more of them than us learning how to dance the rain.
(learning how to dance the rain)
There was more of them than us now they’ll never dance again.

Now we’ll never dance again.

Oh ahh, Oh ahh, Oh ahh, Oh ahh, Oh aah, Oh ahh, Oh ahh...

    Who thinks this is a phenomenal song PLEASE STAND UP PLEASE STAND UP PLEASE STAND UP PLEASE STAND UP.

  2. Dottie Baylen

    Ok, so I'm almost a decade too late to the party, but I only just discovered this amazing song! It has been playing every shift at my workplace for the past month, but was too far away to hear most of the lyrics. Still, I loved the catchy tune, and Googled the only lyrics I could hear ("there were more of them than us")...BANG, I got this brilliant song by talented artists! Still have a crush on Mark and Gary, even after all these years, even with the uncomfortable sight of them in shorts and plimsoles.

  33. Adele Tomelty

    Such a great song and such great voices! Gary and Robbie are boss song writers, both given to the poetic. The song and the video are both such great metaphors for life. The guys look so fit and don’t you just love how our boys look over at the other team before they start as if to say “you guys are so not on our level “. Love the shots of the guys in the changing room mixed in with the slows of them in action and the beautiful shots of London landmarks; great cinematography and editing! You could tell from the moment they walked out in their whites that their goal was epic!! This song and this video make a great moment in pop history 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾😎😎

  34. Tommy Cregan

    Now what are they doing rowing in that kind of weather, and singing about it too. Tough as nails

  39. Damien Davis

    revelation chapter 7,and I saw four Angels holding back the four winds, so that no wind would blow on the earth and on the Sea or any tree....
    until we have sealed the bond servants of our God on their foreheads..
    that is what this song represents hense the bit in the middle wash your mouth son, or you'll find yourself floating home.

    Such a good song 💛

  45. Robert Jones

    Unsurpassed, sublime Lads. Timeless tune. Lyrics resonate on so many levels.

  46. Matt YRR

    Is it only me who interprets the lyrics in the following way?
    I think they are actually speaking that dreamers, people with vision and faith are the ones who has been saving the world for centuries and making progress when there was none - as said in the lyrics.
    Even when they say - Back then, we were like cavemen, but we mapped the moon and the stars, then we forgave them.. Clearly states that always there were people who were just fighting to survive the day, eat and sleep while others questioned and tried to make sense of everything, they were guided by their intuition, by their higher purpouse, by their inner wisdom and clarity.
    The line " There was more of them than us" I think it actually implies that there was always more ignorant people, small minded people... Mostly not even by their fault. People who didn't see beyond their senses, people that planted hatred, fear, wrong values. But yet there are always people in the world, dreamers, visionaries that see beyond, that understand that we have the universe at the palm of our hands and that we can hold back a flood if we are together. The creative power that man has is within all of us and it's so unused sometimes and silenced or supressed. And after all the creative power is what created us.
    The lyrics has a really deep meaning! if you listen and read the lyrics of their song "Love, love" you'll see what I'm talking about

  47. Dave Lister

    On how Farage and Brexit would mess up a country !

  55. eye owl

    Beautiful melodious song of pulsating pogniant pain that with reseliance manages to endure with an up tempo lingering flared mounting symphonic arrangement.Sheer brillance for the ear.

  56. Colonel Custard

    This song reminds me of high school art class , but I think noones noticed the biblical themes in this song and progress album, it's called the flood and think it's referring to biblical flood of Noah and lyrics are in the viewpoint of fallen angels, nephilim, also the album progress artwork is like picture of man's evolution

  57. Kaytlen Leifsson

    Legend says the FIVE of them never stopped rowing

    Irrepressible thirst for superiority between
    Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams led to the collapse of the group but Gary Barlow remains the first fiddle

  76. Anto Floma

    Standing, on the edge of forever,
    At the start of whatever,
    Shouting love at the world.
    Back then, we were like cavemen,
    But we map the moon and the stars,
    Then we forgave them.

    We will meet you where the lights are,
    The defenders, of the faith we are.
    Where the thunder turns around
    They'll run so hard we'll tear the ground away.

    You know no one dies,
    In these love drowned eyes,
    Through our love drowned eyes,
    We'll watch you sleep tonight.

    Although no one understood
    We were holding back the flood,
    Learning how to dance the rain.
    We were holding back the flood
    They said we'd never dance again.

    Bleeding, but none of us leaving,
    Watch your mouth son or you'll find yourself floating home.
    Here we come now on a dark star,
    Seeing demons, not what we are.

    Tiny minds and eager hands
    Will try to strike but now will end today.

    There's progress now where there once was none,
    Where there once was none, then everything came along.

    (learning how to dance the rain)
    There was more of them than us now they'll never dance again.

    Now we'll never dance again.

    Oh ah,
    Oh ah,

    Oh ah,
    Oh ah

  79. Bandit Rider

    This is the perfect pop song. It hits me in every emotional way possible, it makes me well up, then fills me with determination and drive, makes me sad at historical memories in my life, and then brings happiness at to good memories ... that tied to it was tied to RW being back on board (:-) ) ... no idea how mantytimes I have listened to it, but there is always one more time ...
