Mumford & Sons – Broad-Shouldered Beasts lyrics

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
Broad-shouldered beasts fill the sky
Manhattan beats at the night
But you are wrapped up in wire
Curled up in fright
So I took you to the city for the night
To dance under dizzy silver lights
But for a moment, you were wild
With abandon like a child, just a moment

[Pre-Chorus]
But wasn't it you who said I was not free
And wasn't it you who said I needed peace
And now it's you who's floored by fear of it all

[Chorus]
But it's alright
Take it out on me
But it's alright
Take it out on me

[Verse 2]
These apartment walls are paper thin
And no one is trying to listen in
What to hear our doubts
Hear our whispered shouts, they don't care

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus]

[Bridge]
But when you feel the world wrapping round your neck
Feel my hand round yours
And when you feel the world wrapping round your neck
Don't succumb

[Chorus]
