Sigh No More Lyrics

Serve God love me and mend
This is not the end
Lived unbruised we are friends
And I'm sorry
I'm sorry

Sigh no more, no more
One foot in sea, one on shore
My heart was never pure
And you know me
And you know me

And man is a giddy thing
Oh man is...

    this song is about the love for Jesus he has he never fully committed "one foot in the sea one on the shore" he says love is a beautiful thing, which is how God intended it, it will not hurt you so love. he says "there is a design" saying god created earth with a purpose and reason so sigh no more. the men of mumford & sons all went to religious secondary schools...

    The song was played on an episode of “Eternal Law “ a much underrated tv series and the episode in question brought a poignancy to the song . I think it is about the clash between believing in God and trying to incorporate that into modern day life

    The song is mostly about love and religon. If you really listen to the chorus, it is pure artwork and the instruments add a breath-taking splash of color to the canvas.

    Mumford's parents are important religious leaders in england,and he's a big fan of Shakespeare so that is why some of the songs are what they are

    the song from Much Ado About Nothing:
    "Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more,
    Men were deceivers ever,
    One foot in sea and one on shore,
    To one thing constant never:
    Then sigh not so, but let them go,
    And be you blithe and bonny,
    Converting all your sounds of woe
    Into Hey nonny, nonny.
    Sing no more ditties, sing no moe,
    Of dumps so dull and heavy;
    The fraud of men was ever so,
    Since summer first was leafy:
    Then sigh not so, & c."

    Yes, also the opening line "Serve God love me and mend" of the song is said by Benedick in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing

    This is really similar to the song that appears in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, and "man is a giddy thing" was said by one of the characters in the play. They might've gotten the idea from there...
