The Cave
Mumford & Sons 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

When this song was on the radio I was living alone with my alcoholic mother. When we finally got evicted she lied to me and told me we had to move in with her boyfriend (who I barely knew) because she had a stalker, and that we'd have to empty my bank account to do it. I was working for barely more than minimum wage at the time. I knew she was lying because that's just what she did. I packed my stuff into my car, ignored her screaming the whole time, and drove off and that was the last time I saw her for 2 years. This song came on just as I was getting on the highway.

Today I'm doing very well: I have a good job and a nice apartment and I'm learning how to cultivate healthy relationships. And to this day I still can't hear this song without breaking down in tears: for me it commemorates the single biggest turning point in my life.
