Roll Away Your Stone
Mumford & Sons Lyrics


Roll away your stone I will roll away mine
Together we can see what we will find
Don't leave me alone at this time
For I am afraid of what I will discover inside

You told me that I would find a home
Within the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal
And all the while my character it steals
And darkness is a harsh term don't you think
And yet it dominates the things I see

It seems that all my bridges have been burned
But you say 'That's exactly how this grace thing works'
It's not the long walk home that will change this heart
But the welcome I receive with every start

Darkness is a harsh term don't you think
And yet it dominates the things I see
Darkness is a harsh term don't you think
And yet it dominates the things I see

Stars hide your fires
For these here are my desires
And I won't give them up to you this time around
And so I'll be found
With my stake stuck in this ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

Stars hide your fires
For these here are my desires
And I won't give them up to you this time around
And so I'll be found
With my stake stuck in this ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

And you, you've gone too far this time
You have neither reason nor rhyme
With which to take this soul that is so rightfully mine

Roll away your stone I will roll away mine
Together we can see what we will find
Don't leave me alone at this time
For I am afraid of what I will discover inside

You told me that I would find a hole
Within the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal
And all the while my character it steals

And darkness is a harsh term don't you think
And yet it dominates the things I see

It seems that all my bridges have been burned
But you say 'That's exactly how this grace thing works'
It's not the long walk home that will change this heart
But the welcome I receive with every start

Darkness is a harsh term don't you think
And yet it dominates the things I see
Darkness is a harsh term don't you think
And yet it dominates the things I see

Stars hide your fires
For these here are my desires
And I won't give them up to you this time around
And so I'll be found
With my stake stuck in this ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

Stars hide your fires
For these here are my desires
And I won't give them up to you this time around
And so I'll be found
With my stake stuck in this ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

And you, you've gone too far this time
You have neither reason nor rhyme
With which to take this soul that is so rightfully mine

I've listened to this song for years, and I only realized today that the lines, "Stars, hide your fires- these here are my desires" was a reference to Macbeth

When I first heard this song, the first thing it made me do is simile. After that I BINGED this song.🤣😇

I want anyone reading this to know that I just rediscovered this song in a SUPER WEIRD WAY

So I've loved this song for years and years, but had totally forgotten about it. I'm currently going through a really rough mental health situation and just started getting help. I had a rough day today in group therapy, and fell asleep for a mid afternoon nap.

While I was asleep, I had a really vivid dream with someone singing, the song was totally wrong, but had the same buildup this one does, and the dream used imagery to imply the meaning despite my brain not remembering the tune or any specific lyrics. It was like my brain was saying "bro, I know what you need right now but I can't remember it so I'm gonna give you the impression of it so hard that you'll have enough of an idea to know but not quite remember what song it is when you wake up SO HELP ME GOD" and it succeeded.

When I woke up, I knew that it was this song that I needed to hear, but I couldn't remember the name, the artist, the lyrics, or the tune. Just the feel of it. It took me an hour but I'm here now and I cannot believe how badly I needed to hear this song again right now. Thanks, brain, for once you really were MVP

Thank you so much for sharing your story! I'm so glad you found the song!

Whose still here in 2020 ❤
