And I will change my ways.

Just when I thought I’m sick of Mumford & Sons already because real hipsters (you know the kind who hate hipsters and sincerity and dorky awkward uncool happiness) say they’re over and overplayed (that second is true) and anyone who disagrees has banal taste, Boulder Magazine tweets this video, tags us having seen my recent love for them…and their joyful raw heart pulls me out of sadness and confusion and make me want to cry, in good way.

But then the song’s over, and I’m left with myself.

Luckily I have ways to work with every state of mind, no matter what.

Lyrics:

It’s empty in the valley of your heart

The sun, it rises slowly as you walk
Away from all the fears
And all the faults you’ve left behind

The harvest left no food for you to eat
You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see
But I have seen the same
I know the shame in your defeat

But I will hold on hope
And I won’t let you choke
On the noose around your neck

And I’ll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I’ll know my name as it’s called again

‘Cause I have other things to fill my time
You take what is yours and I’ll take mine
Now let me at the truth
Which will refresh my broken mind

So tie me to a post and block my ears
I can see widows and orphans through my tears
I know my call despite my faults
And despite my growing fears

But I will hold on hope
And I won’t let you choke
On the noose around your neck

And I’ll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I’ll know my name as it’s called again

So come out of your cave walking on your hands
And see the world hanging upside down
You can understand dependence
When you know the maker’s hand

So make your siren’s call
And sing all you want
I will not hear what you have to say

‘Cause I need freedom now
And I need to know how
To live my life as it’s meant to be

And I will hold on hope
And I won’t let you choke
On the noose around your neck

And I’ll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I’ll know my name as it’s called again
