Winter Winds
Mumford & Sons Lyrics


As the winter winds litter London with lonely hearts
Oh the warmth in your eyes swept me into your arms
Was it love or fear of the cold that led us through the night?
For every kiss your beauty trumped my doubt

And my head told my heart
Let love grow
But my heart told my head
This time no
This time no

We'll be washed and buried one day my girl
And the time we were given will be left for the world
The flesh that lived and loved will be eaten by plague
So let the memories be good for those who stay

And my head told my heart
Let love grow
But my heart told my head
This time no
Yes, my heart told my head
This time no
This time no

Oh the shame that sent me off from the God that I once loved
Was the same that sent me into your arms
Oh and pestilence is won when you are lost and I am gone
And no hope, no hope will overcome

But if your strife strikes at your sleep
Remember spring swaps snow for leaves
You'll be happy and wholesome again
When the city clears and sun ascends

And my head told my heart
Let love grow
But my heart told my head
This time no

And my head told my heart
Let love grow
But my heart told my head
This time no
This time no

Love this band. I am homeless in The good old USA. When I can get free wifi, I will sit for hours listening to them. I might have nothing, but I have music from my favorite band "Mumford and Sons". Joy, is how I feel when I listen and watch this band. Thanks Mumford and Sons for giving a sense of normalcy.

how dare you articulate my emotions impeccably without my permission.

kids these days with their banjos and symbolic meaning..

for me, i have loved someone when i've known that it would lead only to heart ache. so when the temptation came up again (always the same guy *sigh*), I told my heart "no, not going there again" and chose to over ride my emotions for the greater good (my sanity, in this case). so these lyrics make perfect sense to me

1:50 "Oh the shame that sent me off from the God that I once loved, was the same that sent me into your arms" And I was like, woah. Pause. Rewind. Mind = Blown.
