Babel Lyrics

by Mumford & Sons

Cause I know that time has numbered my days
And I'll go along with everything you say.
But I'll write home laughing, look at me now,
The walls of my town, they come crumbling down.
And my ears hear the call of my unborn sons
And I know their choices color all I've done.
But I'll explain it all to the watchman's son,
I never lived a year better spent in love.

[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricenter.com/e102842-mumford_and_sons~babel_lyrics.html ]
Cause I know my weakness, know my voice,
And I'll believe in grace and choice.
And I know perhaps my heart is farce,
But I'll be born without a mask.

Like the city that nursed my greed and my pride,
I stretch my arms into the sky.
I cry Babel, Babel, look at me now,
The walls of my town they come crumbling down.
You ask where will we stand in the winds that will howl
As all we see will slip into the cloud.
So come down from your mountain and stand where we've been,
You know our breath is weak and our bodies thin.

Press my nose up to the glass around your heart.
I should have known I was weaker from the start.
You'll build your walls and I will play my bloody part
To tear, tear them down.
Well I'm gonna tear, tear them down.

Cause I know my weakness, know my voice
And I'll believe in grace and choice.
I know perhaps my heart is farce,
But I'll be born without a mask.
