How great are Mumford and Sons?!

Every time I hear this music - I have the album, Mumford and Sons "Sigh No More", on both CD and vinyl - I just want to write, and write, and write. Pour my thoughts out of my head onto paper into beautiful words like these. One of my favourite winter nights this year was curling up by the fire listening to the record revolving on my new record player and reading the lyrics off the back of the cover. For me, it is so refreshing to know that beautiful, meaningful music like this still exists and is not 40 years old. Every one of them is still alive and young and touring the world with their magic.



As the winter winds litter London with lonely hearts
Oh the warmth in your eyes swept me into your arms
Was it love or fear of the cold that led us through the night?
For every kiss your beauty trumped my doubt

And my head told my heart
"Let love grow"
But my heart told my head
"This time no
This time no"

We'll be washed and buried one day my girl
And the time we were given will be left for the world
The flesh that lived and loved will be eaten by plague
So let the memories be good for those who stay

And my head told my heart
"Let love grow"
But my heart told my head
"This time no"
Yes, my heart told my head
"This time no
This time no"

Oh the shame that sent me off from the God that I once loved
Was the same that sent me into your arms
Oh and pestilence is won when you are lost and I am gone
And no hope, no hope will overcome

And if your strife strikes at your sleep
Remember spring swaps snow for leaves
You'll be happy and wholesome again
When the city clears and sun ascends

And my head told my heart
"Let love grow"
But my heart told my head
"This time no"
And my head told my heart
Let love grow"
But my heart told my head
"This time no
This time no"
