Not being a woman of few words, I couldn’t leave you with just a Wordless Wednesday today!
But I’ll keep this sort and sweet: watch this video. It’s 8:47 of sheer musical genius (mostly because Mumford and Sons brought their A game–Bob Dylan was eh.).
I think it’s from last year’s Grammy Awards.
There’s just something about Mumford and Son’s lyrics and sound that speaks to my soul. LOVE them.If you haven’t already, I highly recommend listening to some of their stuff. I mean really listening. Oh, their lyrics… just wow.
This is what I mean…
After The Storm :
I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.
Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won’t rot, I won’t rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won’t rot.
And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And remembered our own land,
What we lived for.
And there will come a time,
you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart,
but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see
what you find there,
With grace in your heart
and flowers in your hair.
And now I cling to what I knew
I saw exactly what was true
But oh no more.
That’s why I hold,
That’s why I hold with all I have.
That’s why I hold.
And I will die alone
and be left there.
Well I guess I’ll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
because death is just so full
and man so small.
Well I’m scared of what’s behind
and what’s before.
And another favorite of mine–just for the fun of it.
Awesome song. Great video (although my mom disagrees-pssh). Coldplay never lets me down.
Hope your Wednesday is rockin’!
