Thoughts On The SongEdit

About the song Marcus Mumford has said:

"It's a very personal story, so I won't elaborate upon too much. Suffice to say, it was a situation in my life I wasn't very happy with or proud of... and sometimes when you can't describe a feeling with your own words, it's almost easier to express in a song. And then, when you get asked about the songs, it's quite difficult to explain. It's a conundrum - you don't want to seem self-indulgent explaining yourself; it's always awkward. Which is weird again, because it's never awkward actually singing them. I suppose the song should stand on its own and people draw their own interpretation from the words. But for me, personally, it's the lyrics that I listen to again and again in a song. I place specific importance on them. I can't write lyrics unless I really feel them and mean them, which can sometimes be quite frustrating - because if you're not feeling much at the time, you're stuck. I guess the sound of it grabs you a little bit by the balls - it's quite an aggressive song, a bit more of a punch in the face. Or at least, for our stuff, anyway - a lot of our stuff isn't quite as hard-hitting as that. It felt like the right song to be the single because it represented the harder, darker side of what we do, and at the same time, the more folksy and punchy side."

LyricsEdit

Weep for yourself my man

You'll never be what is in your heart

Weep little lion man

You're not as brave as you were at the start

Rate yourself and rake yourself

Take all the courage you have left

Waste it on fixing all the problems that you made in

Your own head


But it was not your fault but mine

It was your heart on the line

I really fucked it up this time

Didn't I, my dear


Tremble for yourself my man

You know that you have seen this

All before

Tremble little lion man

You'll never settle any of your scores

Your grace is wasted in your face

Your boldness stands alone among

The wreck

Now learn from your mother or else spend your

Days biting your own neck


But it was not your fault but mine

It was your heart on the line

I really fucked it up this time

Didn't I, my dear
