Riff: Mumford & Sons – “I Will Wait”

Aug 29, 2012

So tame my flesh and fix my eyes/A tethered mind freed from the lies

from I Will Wait lyrics by Mumford & Sons

Mumford & Sons delivers a most dedicated anthem of love to someone who’s clearly waiting for an answer. This is it, over and over, steadily and hopeful toward a future together that appears to be promising. Their London spark glistens as they prepare to rise from the ashes and live bountifully anew.
