Thursday Tracks: Tompkins Square Park

This weekend I’ll get to see Mumford & Sons in concert and I’m so VERY excited about it. We saw them about two years ago and it became one of my all-time favorite concerts.

This was right before they went on “hiatus” and then came back with a new album that was different from their first two. It was a good different and still very much them. I love it a lot. I remember when the first note of the first track played I got teary eyed. It struck my heart in the most beautiful way. So today I’m featuring that particular song, even though I love so many by them. I hope you enjoy!

Oh babe, meet me in Tompkins Square Park
I wanna hold you in the dark
One last time
Just one last time

And oh babe, can you tell what’s on my tongue?
Can you guess that I’ll be gone?
With the twilight
With the twilight

But no flame burns forever, oh no
You and I both know this all too well
And most don’t even last the night
No they don’t, they say they don’t

Oh babe, I’ve never been so lost
I wanna hear you lie
One last time
Just one last time

But oh babe, I really wish you would not cry
I only ever told you one lie
When it could have been a thousand
It might as well have been a thousand

But no flame burns forever, oh no
You and I both know this all too well
And most don’t even last the night
No they don’t, they say they don’t

And we can talk it round again girl
Round and round, round and round again
Or we could leave it out to die
Leave it out just leave it out

I never tried to trick you babe
I just tried to work it out
But I was swallowed up by doubt
If only things were black and white
‘Cause I just want to hold you tight
Without holding back my mind
Without holding back my mind

But no flame burns forever, oh no
You and I both know this all too well
And most don’t even last the night

I’m no longer going to be adding a linky since it’s just an extra step that isn’t needed at this time, so please leave me the links to your posts in the comments! :) Also, I may start reserving this feature for times I don’t have anything to post, so in case you don’t see one posted at anytime, don’t worry about it. I was either too tired to post or something else had to take its place.

    Yessss! Can not wait for this weekend’s concert. It will be my first time seeing them live, so I have a feeling it will be something to remember. And yes, emotional too, ha!
