Sister – Mumford & Sons

There’s a chip on your shoulder girl
And by God it’ll make you fall
If you let it take a part of your soul

I’ve seen the love in your brother’s eyes
And the love in your mother’s cries
Sister don’t test the ones you love

Sister don’t let go
Sister don’t let go of us
Sister don’t let go
Sister don’t let go of us

Cause your roots will rot away
And your fruit, it won’t grow
Your bark will wear thin, body hollow

I’ve seen the love in your brother’s eyes
And the love in your mother’s cries
Sister don’t test the ones you love

Sister don’t let go
Sister don’t let go of us
Sister don’t let go
Sister don’t let go of us

Sister don’t let go
Sister don’t let go of us
Sister don’t let go
Sister don’t let go of us

Don’t test the ones you love
It’ll only tear us down
If you want to feel alive
Then learn to love your ground

But, don’t test the ones you love
It’ll only tear us down
If you want to feel alive
Then learn to love your ground

Well, love your ground

Sister don’t let go
Sister don’t let go of us
Sister don’t let go
Sister don’t let go of us

Sister don’t let go
Sister don’t let go of us
Sister don’t let go
Sister don’t let go of us

Little Lion Man – Mumford & Sons

Weep for yourself, my man,
You’ll never be what is in your heart
Weep, little lion man,
You’re not as brave as you were at the start
Rate yourself and rake yourself
Take all the courage you have left
Wasted on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn’t I, my dear?
Didn’t I, my dear?

Tremble for yourself, my man,
You know that you have seen this all before
Tremble, little lion man,
You’ll never settle any of your scores
Your grace is wasted in your face,
Your boldness stands alone among the wreck
Now learn from your mother or else spend your days biting your own neck

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn’t I, my dear?

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn’t I, my dear?
Didn’t I, my dear?

[harmonizing]

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn’t I, my dear?

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn’t I, my dear?
Didn’t I, my dear?

Broken Crown – Mumford & Sons

Touch my mouth and hold my tongue
I’ll never be your chosen one
I’ll be home safely tucked away
Well You can’t tempt me if I don’t see the day

The pull on my flesh was just too strong
Stifled the choice and the air in my lungs
Better not to breathe than to breathe a lie
‘Cause when I opened my body I breathe in a lie

I will not speak of your sins
There was a way out for him
The mirror shows not
Your values are all shot

But oh my heart, was flawed I knew my weakness
So hold my hand consign me not to darkness

So crawl on my belly ’til the sun goes down
I’ll never wear your broken crown
I took the road and I fucked it all away
Now in this twilight, how dare you speak of grace

So crawl on my belly ’til the sun goes down
I’ll never wear your broken crown
I took the road and I fucked it all away
Now in this twilight, how dare you speak of grace

So crawl on my belly ’til the sun goes down
I’ll never wear your broken crown
I can take the road and I can fuck it all away
But in this twilight, our choices seal our fate

Dust Bowl Dance – Mumford & Sons

The young man stands on the edge of his porch
The days were short and the father was gone
There was no one in the town and no one in the field
This dusty barren land had given all it could yield

I’ve been kicked off my land at the age of sixteen
And I have no idea where else my heart could have been
I placed all my trust at the foot of this hill
And now I am sure my heart can never be still

So collect your courage and collect your horse
And pray you never feel this same kind of remorse

Seal my heart and break my pride
I’ve nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
Align my heart, my body, my mind
To face what I’ve done and do my time

Well you are my accuser, now look in my face
Your oppression reeks of your greed and disgrace
So one man has and another has not
How can you love what it is you have got

When you took it all from the weak hands of the poor?
Liars and thieves you know not what is in store
There will come a time I will look in your eye
You will pray to the God that you’ve always denied

Then I’ll go out back and I’ll get my gun
I’ll say, “You haven’t met me, I am the only son”

[x2]
Seal my heart and break my pride
I’ve nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
Align my heart, my body, my mind
To face what I’ve done and do my time

READ  Roll Away Your Stone - Mumford & Sons

Well, yes sir, yes sir, yes, it was me
I know what I’ve done, ’cause I know what I’ve seen
I went out back and I got my gun
I said, “You haven’t met me, I am the only son”
