Mumford & Sons “Beloved” Lyrics

Mumford & Sons “Beloved” from the 2019 album Delta.


Austere enthroned in white grandeur
But tired
A shift
A whisper of where you sailed ahead
From your eyes
I’d never seen you unkempt before
As you whispered “Darling close the door”
Well how, have I not made a note of every word
You ever said
Time, is not on our side
But I pretend that it’s alright
She says the Lord has a plan
But admits it’s pretty hard to understand


Before you leave
You must know you are beloved
And before you leave
Remember I was with you

Are you afraid?
How ever could you not be
In this rosy light
This is strange
I feel a hand come through the mirror
Pointing at the light
Pointing at the light we never see
As you put your feathered arms over me

Before you leave
You must know you are beloved
And before you leave
Remember I was with you
And as you leave
I won’t hold you back beloved

You sit
And talk the stars down from the sky
Down there
Forget the chaos in your eyes love

And as you leave
You must know you are beloved
And as you leave
I can see the wild has come for you
And as you leave
I won’t hold you back beloved
And as you leave
See my children playing at your feet

Songwriters: Benjamin Walter David Lovett / Edward James Milton Dwane / Marcus Oliver Johnstone Mumford / Winston Aubrey Aladar Marshall
