"White Blank Page" as written by Marcus Oliver Johnstone Mumford, Edward James Milton Dwane, Benjamin Walter David Lovett and Winston Aubrey Aladar Marshall....
Can you lie next to her
And give her your heart, your heart
As well as your body
And can you lie next to her
And confess your love, your love
As well as your folly
And can you kneel before the king
And say I'm clean, I'm clean

Tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with my whole heart
Oh tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with my whole heart

A white blank page and a swelling rage, rage
You did not think when you sent me to the brink, to the brink
You desired my attention but denied my affections, my affections

Tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with my whole heart
Oh tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with my whole heart

Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life
Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life

    My InterpretationPersonally, I think the song is about a man falling in love with his straight best friend who is also male. I think "Can you lie next to her And give her your heart, your heart As well as your body" refers to the friend and the friend's girlfriend. The man believes or hopes the friend loves him more than his girlfriend. He sings "And can you lie next to her And confess your love" because he thinks the friend doesn't love his girlfriend.
    The man loves his friend: "But tell me now, where was my fault In loving you with my whole heart"
    but the the friend just wants to stay friends: "You desired my attention but denied my affections, my affections"

    Well, that's how i listen to it anyway. I think all interpretations are valid. Oh and i love mumford & sons :) hooked on them at the moment.
