FREE e-book "8 Things to Know About Veterinary Care"

January 17, 2013

I buy very little music, but I’ve found “Babel,” the recent album from Mumford & Sons, to be an apt soundtrack for my life. While the full context of the songs might not match my life with Lilly, many of the hunks of lyrics do. Here are a few examples.


We’ve already made “I will wait” our anthem, of sorts. [Links to video f the song being performed at Red Rocks.]

But, here are a few other snippets of lyrics that really resonate with me as I muddle my way through Lilly’s big brain scare, even if I see them in a light other than intended.


And I’ll still believe

Though there’s cracks you’ll see

When I’m on my knees

I’ll still believe

And, when I’ve hit the ground

Neither lost nor found

If you believe in me

I’ll still believe

[From “Holland Road”]


So give me hope in the darkness

That I will see the light

Cos oh they gave me such a fright

But I will hold on with all of my might

Just promise me we’ll be alright

[From Ghosts That We Knew]


So when your hope’s on fire

But you know your desire

Don’t hold a glass over the flame

Don’t let your heart grow cold

I will call you buy name

I will share your road

[From Hopeless Wanderer]

There are a couple more examples from their first album, but I fear this post will get WAY too sappy, so we’ll save those for another day.

Thanks to all of you for sharing our road and for believing on our behalf when our cracks get too great.
