Fallen // Imagine Dragons
Lover of the Light // Mumford & Sons
So maybe you all jumped on the Mumford train long before I did, but truth be told, I did not like them originally. The first song I heard from them, “Little Lion Man,” didn’t do anything for me.
"Awake My Soul" opened my eyes to the possibililties of Mumford & Sons, but it wasn’t until I heard one song In particular that my love affair with them truly began. (It wasn’t "Roll Away Your Stone," "White Blank Page" or even "I Will Wait", because those actually didn’t do anything for me either).
It was “Timshel.”
I was in a dark place when I first heard this song. As the lyrics go, death was indeed at my doorstep, and these lyrics were so hauntingly-personal that I couldn’t ignore Mumford anymore. They read my thoughts and made them music so even the darkest times of my life could have some beauty.
However, even though “Timshel” captivated me, I know better than to rush and buy an album just because of ONE song…
but then… I heard “Lover of the Light.”
My life will never be the same.
So in honor of the new year approaching, I bring you this gem-of-a-song.
I pray you have a shining, beautiful 2014 filled with all of the hopes & dreams 2013 let go of.
Here’s to love, chance, and a light at the end of the tunnel. ♥
