I came home
Like a stone
And I fell heavy into your arms
These days of dust
Which we've known
Will blow away with this new sun

And I'll kneel down
Wait for now
And I'll kneel down
Wait for now

So break my step
And relent
You forgave and I won't forget
Know what we've seen
And him with less
Now in some way
Shake the excess

And I'll kneel down
Wait for now
And I'll kneel down
Know my ground

Now I'll be bold
As well as strong
Use my head alongside my heart
So take my flesh
And fix my eyes
That tethered mind free from the lies

And I'll kneel down
Wait for now
And I'll kneel down
Know my ground
And I'll kneel down
Wait for now

Raise my hands
Paint my spirit gold
And bow my head
Keep my heart slow

And raise my hands
Paint my spirit gold
And bow my head
Keep my heart slow

    General CommentI believe 'sun' should be 'son' in the line "Will blow away with this new sun", the reason is because he is singing about how he was heavy with guilt and he came to Christ to have it lifted from him. This is confirmed by the lyrics "I'll kneel down" and "bow my head" later on in the song.

    The whole song is clearly about salvation and the more I listen to it the clearer it becomes. This isn't the only song about salvation by mumford and sons in my opinion.

    General CommentI think they are calling this song "I'll Kneel Down"...

    I was hoping that it was
    I'll kneel down
    Your my ground
