Mumford & Sons – I will wait (testo)


“Well, I came home
like a stone
and I fell heavy into your arms
these days of dust
which we’ve known
will blow away with this new sun

But I’ll kneel down
wait for now
and I’ll kneel down
know my ground

And I will wait, I will wait for you
and I will wait, I will wait for you

So break my step
and relent
well, you forgave and I won’t forget
know what we’ve seen
and him with less
now in some way shake the excess

‘Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
and I will wait, I will wait for you
and I will wait, I will wait for you
and I will wait, I will wait for you

Now I’ll be bold
as well as strong
and use my head alongside my heart
so tame my flesh
and fix my eyes
a tethered mind freed from the lies

And I’ll kneel down
wait for now
I’ll kneel down
know my ground

Raise my hands
paint my spirit gold
and bow my head
keep my heart slow

‘Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
and I will wait, I will wait for you
and I will wait, I will wait for you
and I will wait, I will wait for you”.

Significato e citazioni.

I Will Wait is a song by British rock band Mumford & Sons. The track was first released in the United States on August 7, 2012 as the lead single from the band’s second studio album, Babel (2012). This is their most successful song to date surpassing their biggest hits, “Little Lion Man” and “The Cave“. It reached the top ten in the New Zealand, Irish, Canadian and Scottish national charts, and was voted into fifth place in Australian radio station Triple J’s Hottest 100 of 2012. The song is playable in the video game Guitar Hero Live. The music video was directed by Fred & Nick. It was filmed at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado.
The song has received generally favourable reviews. Grady Smith of Entertainment Weekly gave the song a positive review, saying how the song “hearkens back to their Grammy-nomination-festooned single “The Cave” with its shouted refrain, triumphant horns, a driving kick drum, and an earnest lyric about a relationship so perfect it has Marcus Mumford kneeling down in reverence, raising his hands, and wishing for his mind to be “freed from the lies””. Stephanie Middleton of The Celebrity Cafe said, “With untouched vocals and harmonies, the boys manage to create yet another genuine Mumford & Sons track”. Katie Hasty of HitFix gave the song a B+, saying “Marcus is a softie, but he’s got a problem with repetition,” but also said “they bring it home when they jump up an octave and beat the hell out of the chorus”. She concluded with, “This song could be really huge”. Liv Carter of Urban Country News awarded the song a ‘thumbs-up’. Reviewing the song after it started receiving airplay at country radio, she called it “a perfect piece of folk-rock that more than deserves to be introduced to the wider country radio audience”. Rolling Stone magazine named the song the 13th best song of 2012. The song sold 153,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. It is also their highest-charting song both in the US and the UK to date. It has sold over 2 million copies in the US as of April 2013, their second song to do so”.
