SONG OF THE DAY // Mumford and Sons “I Gave You All”

Monday mornings can be surprisingly introspective for me. I found myself listening to this on the morning commute, watching the rain beating at the windshield, my mind wandering. Based in London, Mumford and Sons have a distinctively soulful twang that they throw into their mix of folk bluegrass, enough to the point that would make you feel like you were sitting in a little tavern in Alabama. This song holds immeasurable weight in my heart. I hope you enjoy. x [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyU5OAAOOBE&feature=related]
Lyrics: 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 I close my eyes for a while And 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 I close my eyes for a while And force from the world a patient smile But I gave you all And 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
