Hopeless Wanderer into the Light!

This post documents the day I feel in love with Mumford And Sons.

It was a blistering hot Monday in Dallas and I had spent most of my morning running errands. Instead of coming home to get some sewing done, I sat down with my laptop to do absolutely nothing. The interwebs were my first place to go to check out my pal Perez Hilton. All I had to read was the funny man quartet of Jason Sudeikis, Will Forte, Ed Helms, and Jason Bateman and I was sold. I didn’t even read the title of the post, the video was enough.

Jason Sudeikis, Will Forte, Ed Helms, and Jason Bateman took the cake with this video. The hilarity that ensued watching them portray this song in the manner they did was brilliant.

Sheer and utter brilliance!

As I watched the video, I couldn’t help but drift into the lyrics that were being sung.

So when your hope’s on fire
But you know your desire
Don’t hold a glass over the flame
Don’t let your heart grow cold
I will call you by name
I will share your road

But hold me fast, Hold me fast
‘Cause I’m a hopeless wanderer

It all changed. It dawned on me that I had indeed fallen under the spell of Mumford And Sons. For the first time, I truly took the time to listen one of their songs as it pulled me in closer and wrapped its tender arms around me.

You see, I am probably the only living person besides WareBear, who has not fully embraced Mumford And Sons. I’ve heard friends mention their lyrical genius in the story-telling of their songs, without an inkling to actually relish in the nature of it. I’ve fussed. I’ve refused. I’ve held out until this very day.

Until this video. Until this song.

I experienced an artistic, literary, and intellectual movement in Hopeless Wanderer. Mind blown.

    That video had me cracking up. Hilarious.

    I have liked a few Mumford songs, but just recently became obsessed. Like it’s all I listen to lately. They perfectly can capture my feelings about my recent relationship probs and I just want to make prints of lyrics to hang all over my house haha.

      I have been holding out Heather. Holding and missing out. I am so fortunate that this video came along when it did. Since then I have been obsessed with Mumford And Sons.
