Report It's classic Mumford - full of searching harmonies, stridently strummed guitars and a floorboard-threatening crescendo. Like many of the new songs, it offers solace in a crisis, with repeated imagery of a transition from darkness into light. He witnessed the tower block being consumed by flames from the window of his London flat and immediately committed himself to the relief effort.

I've been kicked off my land at the age of sixteen.Mumford & Sons - Hopeless Wanderer (Official Music Video)
And I have no idea where else my heart could have been. I've placed all my trust at the foot of this hill. And now, I am sure my heart will never be still. So, collect your courage and collect your horse And pray you never feel this same kind of remorse.
Seal my heart and break my pride. I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide Align my heart, my body, my mind to face what I've done and do my time. Well you are my accuser, now look in my face. Your oppression reeks of your greed and disgrace. So, one man has and another has not. How can you love what it is you have got? When you took it all from the weak hands of the poor?
Liars and thieves you know not what is in store There will come a time I will look in your eye. You will pray to the God that you've always denied, Then I'll go out back and I'll get my gun I'll say, "You haven't met me, I am the only son. I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide.
Align my heart, my body, my mind To face what I've done and do my time. Align my heart, my body, my mind. To face what I've done and do my time. Well, yes sir, yes sir, yes, it was me. I know what I've done, 'cause I know what I've seen.
I went out back and I got my gun I said, "You haven't met me, I am the only son. We're Mumford and Sons. You've been very kind to us. Thank you very much. Together we can see what we will find.
Don't leave me alone at this time. For I am afraid of what I will discover inside. Within the fragile substance of my soul. And I have filled this void with things, unreal. And all the while my character it steals. Darkness is a harsh term, don't you think? And yet it dominates the things I see It seems all my bridges have been burnt. But you say that's exactly how this grace thing works.
It's not the long walk home that will change this heart. But the welcome I receive with every start. And yet it dominates the things I see. Stars hide your fires.
These here are my desires. And I will give them up to you this time around. And so, I'll be found with my stake stuck in this ground. Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul. But you, you've gone too far this time. You have neither reason nor rhyme with which to take this soul that is so rightfully mine. That's the Middle East.
It's called "Whispers in the Dark. You hold your truth so purely. We'll swerve not through the minds of men. This lie is dead, and this cup of yours tastes holy, but you know I was not that mad.
But my heart was colder when you'd gone. And I lost my head but found the one that I love. It's not what I do that makes me. And in my weakness I'll grow strong and hold my tongue, and I'll learn from errors made early A brush with the Devil can clear your mind. And strengthen your spine.
I Will Wait
But fingers tap into what you were once. And I'm worried that I blew my only chance. Whispers in the dark Steal a kiss and you'll break your heart. Pick up your clothes and curl your toes.
Learn your lesson, lead me home. Spare my sins for the ark. I was too slow to depart. I'm a cad, but I'm not a fraud. I'd set out to serve the Lord. And I lost my head, but found the one that I love. Under the sun, under the sun. Fingers tap into what you were once. And I lost my head. Let's live while we are young. While we are young, while are young, while we are young. The four young men from West have fire in their bellies, romance in their hearts, and rapture in their masterful voices.
They are staunch friends Marcus Mumford, Country Winston, Ben Lovett, and Ted Dwane who bring their music to us with the passion and pride of an old-fashioned, much-cherished, family business. They create a gutsy, old-time sound that marries the magic of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young with the might of Kings Of Leon, and their incredible energy draws us in quickly to their circle of songs, to the warmth of their stories, and to their magical community of misty-eyed men.
The four friends were playing a number of instruments in various bands in London throughout the summer of They were united to perform impromptu renditions of Marcus' earliest attempts at song-writing in front of crowds of friends in sweaty underground folk nights in the capital. They bonded over their love of country, bluegrass and folk, and decided to make music that sounded loud, proud and live taking music that could often be pretty and delicate, and fill it with enthusiasm, courage and confidence.
"I Will Wait" lyrics
It was a very exciting time, and though we loved it and were in awe of the music going on around us, we didn't consider ourselves contenders in the pretty daunting London music scene. There was never any idea of competition, just pure enjoyment, says Marcus.

They loved live music so much that they would practice their sets on pavements outside the venues, and also act as backing musicians for the peers with whom they played. This sense of playing music for the love of it has continued as the main theme through the band's short history. They booked their first rehearsals in the late autumn of As soon as we sat down together, just the four of us, we knew we had become a band cos what came out was unique to us four as individuals, says Ben.
Out of this session came their first band songs: As soon as they had their first rough cluster of songs, they hit the road, and chased the friendly live reception they got all over the country.
