“I Gave You All” :: Mumford & Sons :: SOTD
“Rip the earth in two with your mind.”
Driving to work yesterday morning there was this moment when the song playing through my speakers, and the world I could see out my car window, linked up and became something breathtaking.
I was coming upon this bridge, nearing it, just about to drive underneath it. Its one of those bridges which are architecturally striking, yet familiar. I’m sure its been caught on film before in one movie, or another. It happens around here, places that I see so often in my days of living in and around Los Angeles that are also part of an on-screen story somewhere.
The wind was still blowing hard. It was like that all the night before, beating at the windows and the roof, leaving a litter of leaves and tree branches on the streets to greet the morning with. The wind, she was still swirling bits of things around in the air.
The music, the song, I don’t know why it all clicked, but it just fit in with the way it all looked, and felt. It brought tears to my eyes.
And, it made me feel damn lucky to be alive.
This was the song:
