Musical Monday: Lover of the Light by Mumford & Sons

A Lover of the Light by Mumford & Sons

The lyrics are below. What does this song mean to you?

A 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’ll have grown
There’ll be no comfort in the shade of the shadows thrown

But I’d be yours if you’d be mine

Stretch out my life and pick the seams out
Take what you like but close my ears and eyes
Or watch me stumble over and over

I had done wrong you built your tower
But call me home and I will build a throne
And wash my eyes out never again

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

With skin too tight and eyes like marbles
You spin me high so watch me as I glide
Before I tumble homeward, homeward

I know I’ve tried I was not stable
And flawed by pride I miss my sanguine eyes
So hold my hands up
Breathe in and breathe out

So love the one you hold
And I will be your gold
To have and to hold
A 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’ll 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’d be yours
If you’d be mine

So love the one you hold
And I’ll 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

  1. Don’t you just love them?! And what a great video. We’re all stumbling blind toward the light, aren’t we? At least when we’re courageous enough to try.

Don't be shy! I'd love to hear from you.
