I included a link to this Mumford and Son song before but I think it deserves a post of its very own. For this, the title track from their first album, has become one of my favourite songs. The lyrics, that lean heavily on Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing' are strikingly beautiful and some of the most wisdom laden I've heard anywhere. So there's no apology for reposting them either. They blow me away every time I play the track. Which is often for I am boosted by their power.
Love that will not betray you, dismay or enslave you,
It will set you free
Be more like the man you were made to be
There is a design,
An alignment to cry,
Of my heart to see,
The beauty of love as it was made to be
It occurred to me the other day that this is not just a blueprint of what we should be seeking. Rather it a model of how we ourselves should behave in all our relationships. Not just the romantic ones.
