Thistle & Weeds – Mumford & Sons

Spare me your judgements and spare me your dreams
Cause recently mine have been tearing my seams
I sit alone in this winter clarity which clouds my mind
Alone in the wind and the rain you left me
It’s getting dark darling, too dark to see
And I’m on my knees, and your faith in shreds, it seems

Corrupted by the simple sniff of riches blown
I know you have felt much more love than you’ve shown
And I’m on my knees and the water creeps to my chest

But plant your hope with good seeds
Don’t cover yourself with thistle and weeds
Rain down, rain down on me
Look over your hills and be still
The sky above us shoots to kill
Rain down, rain down on me

But I will hold on
I will hold on hope

I begged you to hear me, there’s more than flesh and bones
Let the dead bury the dead, they will come out in droves
But take the spade from my hands and fill in the holes you’ve made

But plant your hope with good seeds
Don’t cover yourself with thistle and weeds
Rain down, rain down on me

I Gave You All – Mumford & Sons

Rip the earth in two with your mind
Seal the urge which ensues with brass wires
I never meant you any harm
But your tears feel warm as they fall on my forearm

But close my eyes for a while
Force from the world a patient smile

How can you say that your truth is better than ours?
Shoulder to shoulder, now brother, we carry no arms
The blind man sleeps in the doorway, his home
If only I had an enemy bigger than my apathy I could have won

But I gave you all

Close my eyes for a while
Force from the world a patient smile

But I gave you all

But you rip it from my hands
And you swear it’s all gone
And you rip out all I have
Just to say that you’ve won

Well now you’ve won

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?

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
