Mumford & Sons - The Cave



Mumford & Sons - The Cave

It's empty in the valley of your heart
The sun, it rises slowly as you walk
Away from all the fears
And all the faults you've left behind


The harvest left no food for you to eat
You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see
But I have seen the same
I know the shame in your defeat


But I will hold on hope
And I won't let you choke
On the noose around your neck


And I'll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I'll know my name as it's called again


Cause I have other things to fill my time
You take what is yours and I'll take mine
Now let me at the truth
Which will refresh my broken mind


So tie me to a post and block my ears
I can see widows and orphans through my tears
I know my call despite my faults
And despite my growing fears


But I will hold on hope
And I won't let you choke
On the noose around your neck


And I'll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I'll know my name as it's called again


So come out of your cave walking on your hands
And see the world hanging upside down
You can understand dependence
When you know the maker's hand


So make your siren's call
And sing all you want
I will not hear what you have to say


Cause I need freedom now
And I need to know how
To live my life as it's meant to be


And I will hold on hope
And I won't let you choke
On the noose around your neck


And I'll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I'll know my name as it's called again

*Too random? This song is nominated for both Record of the Year and Song of the Year for Grammy's next year. Was taken aback too, since I have never heard of them, and the other guy/band named Bon Iver. 
*Watch this, listen to the lyrics and then go watch their live performances. One of the BEST revelations this year. Not that I have been listening to a lot of songs though. Blame it on the stagnant radio playlist ... still the same tunes blaring since the beginning of the year.

*A wet, wet weekend here in KL. Still raining as I am typing this. A lot of changes, and they will continue to come in weeks and months to come. Can't wait til the next getaway come Feb .... Hope this spirit will stay strong until then.

*Writing less and less, but I doubt there's anyone reading this anyway. :)
