I Gave You All – ’11-#8

Rip the earth in two with your mind
Seal the urge which ensues with brass wires
I never meant you any harm
But your tears feel warm as they fall on my forearm

But close my eyes for a while
Force from the world a patient smile

How can you say that your truth is better than ours?
Shoulder to shoulder, now brother, we carry no arms
The blind man sleeps in the doorway, his home
If only I had an enemy bigger than my apathy I could have won

But I gave you all

Close my eyes for a while
Force from the world a patient smile

But I gave you all

But you rip it from my hands
And you swear it’s all gone
And you rip out all I have
Just to say that you’ve won

Well now you’ve won

Lately I’ve been loving Mumford & Sons. This is a take based on the lyrics to one of their songs – I Gave You All. I’m going to make a prediction here – I think these guys are going to be huge. I hope it doesn’t ruin their sound, because their music is incredible.
