Ghosts that we knew – Mumford & Sons

You saw my pain, washed out in the rain
And broken glass, saw the blood run from my veins
But you saw no fault, no cracks in my heart
And you knelt beside my hope torn apart

But the ghosts that we knew
Will flicker from view
And we’ll live a long life

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cos oh they gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we’ll be alright

So lead me back, turn south from that place
And close my eyes to my recent disgrace
Cos you know my call and will share my all
And our children come they will hear me roar

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cos oh they gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we’ll be alright

Hold me still bury my heart on the coals
Hold me still bury my heart next to yours

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cos oh they gave me such a fright
But I will hold on with all of my might
Just promise me we’ll be alright

But the ghosts that we knew
Made us black and all blue
But we’ll live a long life
And the ghosts that we knew
Will flicker from view
And we’ll live a long life

I’ve always loved Mumford and Sons but today I really listened to the lyrics. They have struck me so hard. I know that this is how I feel and I’m sure I’m not alone in that.

Love to you all
