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

IMO the song talks about “realization”, in this case about the ending of a love story. So why a so cheering and hopeful tone? Because it’s saying that if your HEAD keeps telling you to keep trying, because you are afraid of letting go, but your HEART is feeling sad and refuse to keep going, you HAVE to let go. It invites you to realize what makes you happy, that keeping a relationship based on fear is wrong and poisonous. So as the winter winds clear the clouds of your time and people change, embrace the new fresh air and change. For your heart. For your happiness.

beautiful realizations. very much true through and through. we are all we have; yet if we live life for another, we cease to for ourselves. keep moving forward, always. more life. love only :)

This song is so uplifting. Not a single song I dislike from Mumford & Sons; I love each one of them! They've helped me through things both petty and significant. I cannot stand people who say that modern music has no talent; it is obvious you just are not looking deep enough. Though considering the hiatus, I do hope they keep it up.

Modern mainstream music has no talent. This is pretty fucking great stuff though

I think (hope) that the reason for the hiatus was so they could write more songs, and perhaps release a new album! ^_^
