“And in the middle of the night
I may watch you go
there’ll be no value in the strength
of walls that I have grown
there’ll be no comfort in the shade
of the shadows thrown
but I’d be yours if you’d be mine

Stretch out my life
and pick the seams out
take what you like
but close my ears and eyes
watch me stumble over and over

I had done wrong
you build your tower
but call me home
and I will build a throne
and wash my eyes out never again

But love the one you hold
and I’ll be your goal
to have and to hold
a lover of the lights

With skin too tight
and eyes like marbles
you spin me high
so watch me as I glide
before I tumble homeward, homeward

I know I tried
I was not stable
and flawed by pride
I miss my sanguine eyes
so hold my hands up
breathe in and breathe out

So love the one you hold
and I’ll be your goal
to have and to hold
a lover of the lights

And in the middle of the night
I may watch you go
there’ll be no value in the strength
of walls that I have grown
there’ll be no comfort in the shade
of the shadows thrown
you may not trust the promises
of the change I’ll show
but I’d be yours if you’d be mine

So love the one you hold
and I’ll be your goal
to have and to hold
a lover of the lights

So love the one you hold
and I will be your goal
to have and to hold
a lover of the lights”.

Citazioni.

Lover of the Light is a song performed by British rock band Mumford & Sons, released as the second single from their second studio album Babel (2012). It was released on 5 November 2012 as a digital download. The song was written by Mumford & Sons and produced by Markus Dravs. A music video to accompany the release of “Lover of the Light” was first released onto YouTube on 4 November 2012 at a total length of five minutes and fifty-five seconds. It was co-directed by British actor Idris Elba and British screenwriter Dan Cadan. The video does not feature the band, it tells the story of a blind man (Elba) who puts aside his cane and runs free, ending with him at the edge of a cliff. Though it was not mentioned before by the critics and is not explicitly declared, it comes clear that the group has used a motive and a landscape strangely very close to the extremely original, but less famous, clip Glósóli by the Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós“.
