Not with Haste
by Mumford & Sons



Your eyes they tie
me down so hard
I'll never learn to put up a guard
So keep my love
My candle bright
Learn me hard,
Oh learn me right
This ain't no sham
I am what I am

But when they speak
Some tongue of old
Or even spit out some holy word
I have no strength
From which to speak
When you sit me down and see I'm week

We will run and scream
You will dance with me
They'll fulfill our dreams
And we'll be free
And we will be who we are
And they'll heal our scars
Sadness will be faraway

So as we walked
Through fields of green
Was the fairest son I'd ever seen
and I was broke
I was on my knees
You said yes as I said please
This ain't no sham
I am what I am
I leave no tie
For a cynics mind

We will run and scream
you will dance with me
They'll fulfill our dreams
And we'll be free
And we will be who we are
And they'll heal our scars
Sadness will be far away

Do not let my let my fickle flesh go to waste
as it keeps my heart and sole in its place
And I will love with urgency but not with haste
