the enemy lyrics – mumford & sons

the enemy

give me hope in silence
it’s easier; it’s kinder
tell me not of heartbreak
it plagues my soul, plagues my soul
we will meet back on this road
nothing gaining, truth be told
but i am not the enemy
it isn’t me, the enemy

but i came and i was nothing
and time will give us nothing
so why did you choose to lean on
a man you knew was falling?

give me hope in silence
it’s easier; it’s kinder
tell me not of heartbreak
it plagues my soul, plagues my soul
and bury me beside you
i have no hope
in solitude
and the world will follow
to the earth down below

but i came and i was nothing
and time will give us nothing
so why did you choose to lean on
a man you knew was falling?
