Quote Challenge – Day Three

Thanks again to Nortina Mariela for nominating me for this challenge. I’ve enjoyed sharing my love of music with you all. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as well.

The choice of my last song was a bit tougher. This band showed up on one of my play lists and no matter which song I listened to or read the lyrics for, I couldn’t quite decide which song to use, so I went with one I’ve loved for a while. I’ve only ever heard it on the radio, though, and when they moved on to newer songs, I stopped hearing it. When I found it again, I was ecstatic and am happy to say it is now part of my music.

Once again, I grabbed the lyrics from AZLyrics and I’ve linked to YouTube so you can check it out if you are so inclined.

More than any others I’ve heard or read, many of this band’s lyrics come across as poetry to me. I don’t have a whole lot more to say other than I love this band!

“I Will Wait” by Mumford & Sons

Well, 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 sunBut I’ll kneel down,
Wait for now
And I’ll kneel down,
Know my ground

And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

So break my step
And relent
Well, you forgave and I won’t forget
Know what we’ve seen
And him with less
Now in some way shake the excess

‘Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

Now I’ll be bold
As well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
So tame my flesh
And fix my eyes
A tethered mind freed from the lies

And I’ll kneel down,
Wait for now
I’ll kneel down,
Know my ground

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

‘Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you


Okay, so part of the challenge is to pick three bloggers. The downside is that I’ve been pretty absent on my reader so I have no idea who has participated and who hasn’t. I’m just going to pick three and if you’ve already done it, take it as a huge compliment from me to you and just move on. If you haven’t done it, though, it’s well worth it!
Here are the rules again, just in case you missed them:
  • Post one quote for three consecutive days which can come from your favorite book, author, song, role model, etc.
  • Nominate three other bloggers
  • Have fun. Try not to make this challenge โ€œforcedโ€

And my three nominees:
