A Song A Day: January 12th: Coming out of my cave.

12 01 2011

I’m feeling in a very good mood today after recent events and it’s nice to feel like my normal self again! Thankyou to everyone who has helped me through the last few days, it’s really appreciated. This is also take 3 at posting after Safari crashed out on me randomly

Todays song comes from a band that blew onto the UK music scene in 2010 with some significant force. When I first heard their album ‘sigh no more’ I only really enjoyed the first track (the title track) — However, the more I heard the album, the more it grew on me. After I watched the BBC’s coverage of the Reading Festival and I saw Mumford & Sons perform an astounding gig to a hyper-enthusiastic HUGE crowd for the occasion, it really struck me as to just how great they were.

This track is called ‘The Cave’ and is track 2 on the album. UK readers may recognise this song because it crops on adverts left, right and centre. This song will be stuck in your head all day now. I can just about ensure it!

It’s empty in the valley of your heart
The sun, it rises slowly as you walk
Away from all the fears
And all the faults you’ve left behind

The harvest left no food for you to eat
You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see
But I have seen the same
I know the shame in your defeat

But I will hold on hope
And I won’t let you choke
On the noose around your neck

And I’ll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I’ll know my name as it’s called again

Cause I have other things to fill my time
You take what is yours and I’ll take mine
Now let me at the truth
Which will refresh my broken mind

So tie me to a post and block my ears
I can see widows and orphans through my tears
I know my call despite my faults
And despite my growing fears

But I will hold on hope
And I won’t let you choke
On the noose around your neck

And I’ll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I’ll know my name as it’s called again

So come out of your cave walking on your hands
And see the world hanging upside down
You can understand dependence
When you know the maker’s hand

So make your siren’s call
And sing all you want
I will not hear what you have to say

Cause I need freedom now
And I need to know how
To live my life as it’s meant to be

And I will hold on hope
And I won’t let you choke
On the noose around your neck

And I’ll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I’ll know my name as it’s called again

A Song A Day: Feb 2nd – ‘You Can Go With This… You Can Go With That!’ « My 2011 Music Diary

[…] over the shop since it came out. I’ve lost count the amount of times that I’ve heard Mumford and Sons’s The Cave on adverts and TV […]

Mumford and Sons is quickly rising to the top of my list of great new music. I actually heard a song last night the I was loving and used Shazam on my cell to identify it. Mumford and Sons. This is a great choice for your mood on this day.

I’m catching up from vacation and work overload since vacation and I want to tell you how happy I am that things have smoothed out for you and your bestie. I’m really happy.

I have to admit. I seem to be listening to at least one Mumford track per day at the moment. I’ve begun to pick out some of their songs on the guitar. I’m happy too, we can talk and joke again just about like normal. It’s a nice feeling.

Thanks for commenting!

It’s nice that you feel like your normal self again.

Nice song. I love the lyrics “Away from all the fears and faults you’ve left behind.”

As I grow into a new person by lifting my thoughts to higher ideals I feel like I’m leaving all my fears and faults behind. I like the process.
I look forward to your music also. Thank you.

Deep post. I’m so glad to feel more like Daniel again!! I was able to sleep last night and reverting to eating my normal amount, instead of just half a ham sarnie!
As for the lyrical extract you mention, I had never thought about it in that way, clearly a freudian slip if ever there was one. No doubt that every time I listen to this song now I’ll think about that line in the way you mention.

As for your relation. I think that is a lovely sentiment you’ve made and a very nice interpretation. I also feel that with each and every blog post I’m learning more about myself and further discovering myself. It’s quite a therapeutic process, and has definitley helped me to express myself and help deal with recent events – ‘leaving all my fears’

Thankyou for a very nice, and thought-provoking comment.
