mumford & sons - i will wait || music



Something about this band is so special. I'm not sure if it's the banjo or Marcus Mumford's voice or the lyrics, but they're special. I love this new song that came out. I think it captures my heart and what I'm going through right now. I came home and physically felt heavy. Emotions stirred in me as I drove into Belleville. I was kind of surprised by this. At church we talked about Mary & Martha and the major difference was that Mary sat, rested and listened. She experienced intimacy while Martha was busy. I think it's time for that now.

I have a lot to think about in my mind. This past weekend a lot happened in my heart. As a lot of questions started to become answered more questions arose. I like to have complete pictures nicely framed in my mind. If there are any holes to a situation or picture it makes me feel very unsettled. But that's where trust comes in right? Trusting that even with unanswered questions life is good and I'm going through a process. Sorry for being so vague. I'm also still figuring it out. I'm wondering what I'm doing at photojournalism school, why I'm in the middle of nowhere and why I didn't follow through with some other options. It's not regret. It's just a wonder.


And 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

And I'll kneel down
Wait for now
And I'll kneel down
Know my ground

And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you


So break my step
And relent
You forgave and I won't forget
Know what we've seen
And him with less
Now in some way
Shake the excess

But I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

So I'll be bold
As well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
So take my flesh
And fix my eyes
That tethered mind free from the lies

But I'll kneel down
Wait for now
I'll kneel down
Know my ground

Raise my hands
Paint my spirit gold
And bow my head
Keep my heart slow

Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

  1. I love Mumford and Sons so much. Even though they aren't a labeled Christian band, all their songs seem to have such great Christian meanings.. 'Can you kneel before the King, and say I'm clean..?'
    'This city breathes the plague of loving things more than their creator..'

  3. I just listened to their album. Now, Andrew Bird is on :) I love Mumford very much too. Every time I listen to them, I feel like something is stuck in my throat. And the emotions that I feel aren't warm and fuzzy; they're more of nostalgia. It could be because when I saw them at Coachella, their performance moved me to tears and it will always be one of my favorite sets. But it could also be because of the power of their lyrics & music.
