A White Blank Page

via


Can you lie next to her
and give her your heart, your heart?
As well as your body
And can you lie next to her
and confess your love, your love?
As well as your folly
And can you kneel before the king
and say, "I'm clean", "I'm clean"?

But tell me now where was my fault
in loving you with my whole heart?
Oh, tell me now where was my fault
in loving you with my whole heart?

A white blank page
and a swelling rage, rage
You did not think
when you sent me to the brink, to the brink
You desired my attention
but denied my affections, my affections

So tell me now where was my fault
in loving you with my whole heart?
Oh tell me now where was my fault
in loving you with my whole heart?

Lead me to the truth and I
will follow you with my whole life
Oh lead me to the truth and I
will follow you with my whole life

-Mumford & Sons

Rarely, I hear a song that fits into a brief moment of my life perfectly. It strikes a chord deep inside and becomes intertwined forevermore with that period in time. I will never hear Hallelujah without thinking of laboring long and hard with Baby R.

This afternoon, I heard A White Blank Page and knew that years from now it would remind me of this summer, for good or bad.

Love Mumford & Sons! I too have soundtrack moments in my life. The emotions run really really deep when life & music coincide!

I hope it reminds you of the good, with the bad eventually fading away, leaving you stronger.
