12 Mumford & Sons Lyrics That Will Give You Goosebumps Every Time

I guess the truth works two ways. Maybe the truth's not what we need.

Mumford and Sons

In celebration of the release of Delta (their new album) on November 16th, I was inspired to collect together some of my favorite lyrics that have always resonated with me throughout the years. Mumford and Sons have been my favorite since I was an angsty middle-schooler and now as an angsty adult. The one band I am not ashamed to say still gives me goosebumps to this day and have moved me so much I even have a dedicated tattoo on...a good portion of my forearm.

In case you needed any reason to check them out - here it is!

"Because death is just so full and man so small. Well I'm scared of what's behind and what's before."

"Keep the earth below my feet. From my sweat, my blood runs weak. Let me learn from where I have been. Oh keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn."

"You were strangely less in pain than you were cold. Triumphant in your mind, of the logic that you hold. You said no one would ever know the love that we had shared. As I took my leave to go it was clear you didn't care."

"Now look at you all torn up. I left you waiting to bleed. I guess the truth works two ways. Maybe the truth's not what we need."

"Lend me your hand and we'll conquer them all. But lend me your heart and I'll just let you fall. Lend me your eyes I can change what you see. But your soul you must keep, totally free."

"You saw my pain washed out in the rain. Broken glass, saw the blood run from my veins. But you saw no fault, no cracks in my heart. And you knelt beside my hope torn apart."

"So I'll be a shadow of the flame, I lent down to kiss you then erased my name. And I'll be a whisper on the wind. My hands are shaking from holding so tight for so long."

"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."

"So fuck your dreams. And don't you pick at our seams. I'll turn into a monster for you, if you pay me enough. None of this counts, a few dreams, plowed up."

"If only I had an enemy bigger than my apathy I could have won."

"I wrestled long with my youth. We tried so hard to live in the truth. But do not tell me all is fine, when I lose my head, I lose my spine."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
