I read somewhere that I Will Wait was about Marcus Mumford reconnecting with his childhood pen pal, actress Carey Mulligan. The lyrics “Well I came home / Like a stone / And I fell heavy into your arms / These days of dust / Which we’ve known / Will blow away with this new sun” describes the joy and relief of somebody who’s constantly on the road coming home to the arms of his loved one. It’s a great song for touring musician, Gentry and his husband, Winter.
All I Wanna Do was an easy choice for Raine and Mickey’s story. The lyrics goes “Everywhere I go / I see you beside me / You know you got me feeling / Right as rain“
