Little Lion Man
Mumford & Sons Lyrics


Weep for yourself, my man
You'll never be what is in your heart
Weep little lion man
You're not as brave as you were at the start
Rate yourself and rake yourself
Take all the courage you have left
Wasted on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Didn't I, my dear?

Tremble for yourself, my man
You know that you have seen this all before
Tremble little lion man
You'll never settle any of your scores
Your grace is wasted in your face
Your boldness stands alone among the wreck
Now learn from your mother or else spend your days biting your own neck

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Didn't I, my dear?

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Didn't I, my dear?

Weep for yourself, my man,
You'll never be what is in your heart
Weep little lion man,
You're not as brave as you were at the start
Rate yourself and rake yourself,
Take all the courage you have left
Wasted on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head
But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Didn't I, my dear?
Tremble for yourself, my man,
You know that you have seen this all before
Tremble little lion man,
You'll never settle any of your scores
Your grace is wasted in your face,
Your boldness stands alone among the wreck
Now learn from your mother or else spend your days biting your own neck
But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Didn't I, my dear?
But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Didn't I, my dear?

Weep for yourself, my man,
You'll never be what is in your heart
Weep, little lion man,
You're not as brave as you were at the start
Rate yourself and rake yourself
Take all the courage you have left
And waste it on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Didn't I, my...

Tremble for yourself, my man,
You know that you have seen this all before
Tremble, little lion man,
You'll never settle any of your scores
Your grace is wasted in your face,
Your boldness stands alone among the wreck
Now learn from your mother or else spend your days biting your own neck

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Didn't I, my dear?

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Didn't I, my dear?

Now that I look better at the lyrics, the song describes PERFECTLY how I broke up with my ex. We were in a 3-year-long distance relationship, he was in the US and me at the time in Italy.

The first of the problems is that we were never able to meet.

The second was that at certain points we used to quarrel over certain meaningless, not real life related things, and that annoyed me so much.

Third, since he moved from Michigan to Arizona and I moved from Italy back to my home country, Serbia, we felt even more distant from each other.

Fourth, he really fucked it at new year 2019. In 2018 he lost his father and four of his uncles and aunts, plus his original Facebook account being deleted for a bullshit (he used his fb accout as a cloud storage of videos, pics and even audio files because he never had a pc).
We used to celebrate new year together in both our time zones, starting from mine and six hours later going with his...
But just because 2018 was so messed for him, he didn't have any hope for 2019, whereas I tried to convince him that it's becaused he was crushed down during 2018 and I was there for him that he should have hoped for a better 2019.

But no.
While I was celebrating my new year with my family, I video-called him but instead with celebrating with ME at least, he was absorbed into Skyrim in his own limbo.

I couldn't just help him any more. And after the break-up, he even blamed me for abandoning him while it was just him not wanting help at all, despite me trying to be close to him after all his losses...

But after a full year without him I moved on, and my current relationship is still a distance relationship, but with the difference that we already met twice in real life, and he was basically in love with me for two years before actually confessing his feelings for me (we knew each other for four years while I was streaming League of Legends).

Now it's just the ban on international travels keeping us apart, we're just 650 kms away but I'm confident that I'll be able to hug him again (and there comes another song from M&S, I will wait. THAT one instead was playing on the radio half an hour before my return bus to Serbia arrived so that's a sign of destiny)

This song saved my life.

I left the love of my life because I didn't think I was enough for her. I left her in another country. I came back... absolutely nothing for me here. I sat in the city, no food or money, just waiting to die.

A few days passed and this this song came on. A construction crew just a door down had this playing.

I cried. Cried unlike I ever have or would again. It reached me like no song ever could.

I got up. I came home. I could move on.

Thank you. I think you saved my life.

@Dan Barton his service with over 600 people was only the beginning. There was a few parties with high attendance and a few months later an 80 mile motorcycle ride with about 250 bikes.

I will never forget the first time I heard this song, I was getting into my truck after being told by doctors that I had miscarried, the radio turned on and the first thing I heard was "It's not your fault but mine...It was your heart on the line"...every time I hear this song I think of my sweet angel baby, and I wish I could know her.
