Mumford & Sons - Whispers In The Dark Lyrics

You hold your truth so purely
Swerve not through the minds of men
This lie is dead
This cup of yours tastes holy
But a brush with the devil can clear your mind
Strengthen your spine
Fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance

Whispers in the dark
Steal a kiss and you'll break your heart
Pick up your clothes and curl your toes
Learn your lesson, lead me home
Spare my sins for the ark
I was to slow to depart
I'm a cad but I'm not that flawed
I set out to serve the Lord.

And my heart
Was colder when you've gone
And I lost my head
But found the one that I loved
Under the sun
Under the sun

Fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance
Fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance

And my heart
Was colder when you've gone
And I lost my head
But still, while we are young
While we are young
While we are young
While we are young
