Sigh No More

A little while ago my friend Eryn recommended the band Mumford and Sons to me.

Typically I make fun of her music taste because oftner than not I end up feeling like I should be wearing a drug rug, or carrying around a tote with multiple buttons and a big recycle emblem on it or something...

But she was spot on with this recommendation!

This is a fantastic album and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

The song, After the Storm, has been exceptionally comforting to me and so I thought I would share it with you! Click the link below and enjoy!

After the Storm- Mumford and Sons

And after the storm,
I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.

Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won't rot, I won't rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won't rot.

And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And remembered our own land,
What we lived for.

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And now I cling to what I knew
I saw exactly what was true
But oh no more.
That's why I hold
That's why I hold with all I have.
That's why I hold.

I will die alone and be left there.
Well I guess I'll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
Because death is just so full and man so small.
Well I'm scared of what's behind and what's before.

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.
