I’ll find strength in pain and I will change my ways

Vandaag de eerste keer dag ik een nummer deel van een van mijn favoriete bands in zondag muziekjes. Dat heeft veel te lang geduurd! Bij deze. :-)

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 land.

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.

Een mooi, fijn nummer. Tenminste, dat vind ik.

Wat vind jij van dit nummer? 

Liefs

  1. Ja, mooi. Ook heel mooi: After the Storm van Mumford and Sons.

    And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
    And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
    Get over your hill and see what you find there,
    With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

  2. Het is heel gek: ik ben naar hun concert geweest afgelopen juli, maar ik ben echt niet één van hun grootste fans. Ik vind hun muziek wel heel goed, maar ik luister het eigenlijk niet zo heel vaak. Gisteren kwam ik toevallig een video tegen van het concert en dat was toch wel herl fijn hoor! Ik vind hun teksten soms een beetje abstract, maar verder wel mooi.
