So along with a lot of other really great music I have been listening to repeatedly the song by Mumford and Sons titled I Will Wait.  The lyrics go as follows;

And I came home
Like a stone
And I fell heavy into your arms
These days of darkness
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


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


So I’ll be bold
As well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
So tame 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

I have been pretty inspired by this song as to me it seems to have so many spiritual connotations.  Regarding forgiveness and selflessness, using the Spirit while keeping the mind working, fixing ours eyes on the important things of this life.  Bowing our head, which for me is a HUGE reference to prayer for me.  Now I don’t know if Mr. Mumford and his Sons intended the spiritual nature of this song but it really struck a chord with me on that kind of level.  The upbeat tempo of the song doesn’t hurt either!  I also love that the song have multiple verse and which can often be missing in songs as they just repeat the same lines over and over to the same old beat, which is great for working out.  But for the story and emotion telling aspect of a song these full fledged verse songs have, nothing can compare.  So take a listen and see how it makes you feel.
