I Will Wait - Mumford and Sons

www.last.fmby Simon Cleary 

The Experience: Does true love exist? How do you make it happen? Some singers rave about getting fast love … Mumford prefers to “Bow my head, keep my heart slow.” Promising to “tame my flesh, and fix my eyes,” he leaves easy girls for the players. He’s promised “I wait for you” and gets a love that lasts...
What’s this girl-worth-waiting-for like? She “forgave, and I won’t forget.” She’s there when he’s tired, when he “came home like a stone, and I fell heavily into your arms.” She’s there for him, she’s understanding. She waits for him too...

Music Video: It’s a warm-hearted concert where everyone’s having a great time. You don’t need much frills to be happy in that kind of lifestyle.

Meaning of I Will Wait: We only wait for people we care about. 

Ask yourself: If we count the people we could promise “I will wait” for, would we get past ten names? Or do we have a lot of friends, but only if they keep up with us? 


Well I came home like a stone
And I fell heavy into your arms
These days of dust, which we've known
Will blow away with this new sun

But I'll kneel down, wait for now
And I'll kneel down know my ground

And I will wait, I will wait for you

So break my step, and relent
Well you forgave, and I won't forget
Know what we've seen and him with less
Now in some way shake the excess

And I will wait, I will wait for you

Now I'll be bold as well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
So tame my flesh, and fix my eyes
A tethered mind freed from the lies

And I'll kneel down, wait for now
I'll kneel down know my ground

Raise my hands paint my spirit gold
Bow my head, keep my heart slow

Cos I will wait, I will wait for you
