Music Prompt #6: “The Cave” By Mumford & Sons #musicchallenge #amwriting #music 

Happy Friday! I hope you are all doing well. I didn’t get the sense J.LO was people’s style last Friday Music Prompt so I’m trying a different genre of music song from a great band called Mumford & Sons. 

Mumford & Sons are a British band that formed in 2007. The bands lead singer is Marcus Mumford and “they’ve released three studio albums: Sigh No More (2009), Babel (2012) and Wilder Mind (2015). Sigh No More peaked at number two on the UK Albums Chart and the Billboard 200 in the US, with Babel and Wilder Mind both debuting at number one in the UK and US” (Wikipedia).” I am choosing one of my favorit songs from their latest album Wilder Mind called “The Cave.” Its catchy and the lyrics always make me think. It’s a rock song and also has a ‘folksy’ vibe as does much of Mumford & Son’s songs.

The Cave” – Mumford & Sons

Use this song as inspiration for any form of creative expression (including but not limited to short stories, poems, lyrics, artwork, photography, etc. Alternatively, If you are a musician use this as an opportunity to showcase your own work.

What do you think the bad is singing about in this song? How does the title fit in with the theme of the song? Why is the narrator ‘holding on?’

” The Cave” – Mumford & Sons

——–

It’s empty in the valley of your heart

The sun, it rises slowly as you walk

Away from all the fears

And all the faults you’ve left behind

*****

The harvest left no food for you to eat

You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see

But I have seen the same

I know the shame in your defeat

*****

But I will hold on hope

And I won’t let you choke

On the noose around your neck

*****

And I’ll find strength in pain

And I will change my ways

I’ll know my name as it’s called again

*****

‘Cause I have other things to fill my time

You take what is yours and I’ll take mine

Now let me at the truth

Which will refresh my broken mind

*****

So tie me to a post and block my ears

I can see widows and orphans through my tears

I know my call despite my faults

And despite my growing fears

*****

But I will hold on hope

And I won’t let you choke

On the noose around your neck

*****

And I’ll find strength in pain

And I will change my ways

I’ll know my name as it’s called again

*****

So come out of your cave walking on your hands

And see the world hanging upside down

You can understand dependence

When you know the maker’s land

*****

So make your siren’s call

And sing all you want

I will not hear what you have to say

*****

‘Cause I need freedom now

And I need to know how

To live my life as it’s meant to be

*****

And I will hold on hope

And I won’t let you choke

On the noose around your neck

*****

And I’ll find strength in pain

And I will change my ways

I’ll know my name as it’s called again

About mandibelle16

Hey, nice to meet you. I'm a Canadian girl who loves the local sports scene. The NHL and CFL are my regular sports domains but I've been getting into the NFL games. Go Oilers! Excited for our Stanley Cup contenders last year. Their soon to be champions in the following seasons (knock on wood!). Pleased with the Eskimo's winning, they're in a slump but there's time. My dream of the moment is to see the Oilers play the new Las Vegas team! I also enjoy Hatha yoga, short walks in the river valley, drawing with pencil and charcoal, makeup and hairstyles, the whole beauty niche: as well, short seminars, TED Talks, and podcasts on a variety of subjects -- but especially creative writing, art, and humorous lifestyle. I love dogs but I can't have one right now but I enjoy hanging out with friends and family whenever I'm able. I like summer and fall when the weathers warm and there are many festivals. Lots of activities to do and places in the city to explore. I'm a writing fanatic. I'm slowly editing a novel, check me out on Wattpad @mandibelle16. The novel is called 'How Was Last Night?' by A.M. Wilson and is a paranormal romance. I haven't had much time to work on it in months but hopefully in Fall? On my blog I take part in flash fiction challenges, short stories, poetry, and nonfiction pieces. Nonfiction writing includes blogger/writer interviews, current events, quotes, entertainment, fashion, interior design, and beauty. Sometimes I share about my life. Check out my published poetry and short fiction on www.spillwords.com, Silver Bell Press Online, SickLitMagazine.com., and herheartpoetry.com on Instagram. Happy to meet you, browse as long as you like! If you have any questions or suggestions you can get ahold of me through my blog Contact Page up too! If you want to be interviewed as a writer/blogger send me a message :)
