Broken Crown
by Mumford & Sons



Touch my mouth
And hold my tongue
I'll never be your chosen one
I'll be home, safe and tucked away
You can't tempt me if I don't see the day

The pull on my flesh is just too strong
It stifles the choice and the air in my lungs
Better not to breathe than to breathe a lie
When I open my body and breathe alive

I will not speak of your sin
There was a way out for him
The mirror shows not
Your values are all shot

But oh, my heart was flawed
I knew my weakness
So hold my hand
Consign me not to darkness

Crawl on my belly 'til the sun goes down
I'll never wear your broken crown
I took the road and I fucked it all the way
In this twilight, how dare you speak in praise

Crawl on my belly 'til the sun goes down
I'll never wear your broken crown
I'll take the road and fuck it all the way
In this twilight, how dare you speak in praise

Crawl on my belly 'til the sun goes down
I'll never wear your broken crown
I can take the road and I can fuck it all the way
But in this twilight, our choices seal our fate
