Thistle & Weeds is the ninth track from Sigh No More by Mumford & Sons .

LyricsEdit

Spare me your judgements and spare me

your dreams

'Cause recently mine have been tearing

My seams

I sit alone in this winter clarity which

Clouds my mind


Alone in the wind and the rain you left

Me

It's getting dark, darling, too dark to see

And I'm on my knees and your faith in

Shreds it seems


Corrupted by the simple sniff of riches

Blown

I know you have felt much more love

Than you've shown

I'm on my knees and the water creeps to

My chest


But plant your hope with good seeds

Don't cover yourself with thistle and

Weeds

Rain down, rain down on me


Look over your hills and be still

The sky above us shoots to kill

Rain down, rain down on me


I will hold on, I will hold on hope


I begged you to hear me, there's more

Than flesh and bones

Let the dead bury the dead

They will come out in droves

But take the spade from my hand, and

Fill in the holes you've made


Plant your hope with good seeds

Don't cover yourself with thistle and

Weeds

Rain down, rain down on me
