Words to Live By

02 Nov

So, I have been listening to a lot of Mumford and Sons because of their new album that came out a month ago or maybe even more then a month ago entitled Babel. As most people know anything that is refer to as Mumford and Sons is words to live by. Importantly because I feel like they have a message that is geared towards life.

Mumford and Sons

Top List of Mumford and Sons song that I love:

1. Roll Away Your Stone 

Roll away your stone, I’ll roll away mine
Together we can see what we will find
Don’t leave me alone at this time,
For I am afraid of what I will discover inside

2. Sign No More 

Love that will not betray you, 
dismay or enslave you, 
It will set you free 
Be more like the man 
you were made to be. 
There is a design, 
An alignment to cry, 
At my heart you see, 
The beauty of love 
as it was made to be

3. After the Storm 

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.

4. White Blank Page 

Can you lie next to her 
and give her your heart, your heart?
As well as your body
And can you lie next to her 
and confess your love, your love?
As well as your folly
And can you kneel before this king 
and say “I’m clean”, “I’m Clean”?

Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life
oh lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life

I think that everyone should listen to this song before they get married/ commit to a relationship with someone. It is so wonderfully written. It speaks so much truth.

5. The Cave

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

7. Not with Haste 

Though I may speak some tongue of old
Or even spit out some holy word
I have no strength from which to speak
When you sit me down, and see I’m weak

We will run and scream
You will dance with me
They’ll fulfill our dreams and we’ll be free

8. Lover of the Light 

And in the middle of the night, I may watch you go
There’ll be no value in the strength of walls that I have grown
There’ll be no comfort in the shade of the shadows thrown
You may not trust the promises of the change I’ll show
But I’ll be yours if you’ll be mine

So love the one you hold
And I will be your gold
To have and to hold
A lover of the light

So love the one you hold
And I will be your gold
To have and to hold
A lover of the light

9. Babel

I should have known I was weaker from the start.
You’ll build your walls and I’ll play my bloody part.
To tear, tear them down.
Well I’m gonna tear, tear them down.
Know my weakness, know my voice.
I believe in grace and choice.
I know that perhaps my heart is farce but I know that I’ll be born without
A mask

10. Holland Road

So I was lost, go count the cost,
Before you go to the holland road,
With your heart like a stone you spared no time in lashing out,
And I knew your pain and the effect of my shame, but you cut me down, you cut me down,

And I will not tell the thoughts of hell
That carried me home from the Holland road
With my heart like a stone and I put up no fight
To your callous mind, and from your corner you rose to cut me down, you cut me down

I believe that Mumford and Sons paint an interesting view of what love is and what it means to live out love in everyday life. Not all there songs around about love and relationships but about life in general, one that is close to God and faith.

    I love Mumford and Sons! I think you should do another post and pick a song you really love by them and tell us why! I look forward to reading more! “The Cave” and “Little Lion Man” are my two favorites for sure.
