Riff: Mumford & Sons – “Not With Haste”

Oct 5, 2012

And I was broke, I was on my knees/You said ‘yes’ as I said, ‘please’

from Not With Haste lyrics by Mumford & Sons

Babel comes full-circle with this slow-burn closer, in which Marcus Mumford finally happens upon love for a certain Carey Mulligan – his proposal to whom is briefly touched on in the lyrics – and, most importantly, for himself, with Mumford confidently roaring: “This ain’t no sham, I am what I am.”
