broken crown lyrics – mumford & sons

broken crown

touch my mouth and hold my tongue
i’ll never be your chosen one
i’ll be home safely tucked away
well you can’t tempt me if i don’t see the day

the pull on my flesh was just to strong
stifled the choice and the air in my lungs
better not to breathe than to breathe a lie
’cause when i open my body i breathe in a lie

i will not speak of your sins
there was a way out for him
the mirror shows not
your values are all shot

but oh my heart, was flawed i knew my weakness
so hold my hand consign me not to darkness

so crawl on my belly ’til the sun goes down
i’ll never wear your broken crown
i took the road and i f*cked it all away
now in this twilight, how dare you speak of grace

so crawl on my belly ’til the sun goes down
i’ll never wear your broken crown
i took the road and i f*cked it all away
now in this twilight, how dare you speak of grace

so crawl on my belly ’til the sun goes down
i’ll never wear your broken crown
i can take the road and i can f*ck it all away
but in this twilight, our choices seal our fate
