A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "I Will Wait" is a slightly serious yet very clean song about two people who form a strong, mutually respectful bond that lasts through ups and downs. With no explicit language or mentions of substances, sex, or violence, the track is a great choice for younger kids who love alt-country music.

What's the story?
Alt-country darlings Mumford & Sons are back with "I WILL WAIT," the first single from Babel, the full-length follow-up to their smash debut record, Sigh No More. The track details a healthy relationship between two people who haven't acted perfectly toward each other -- but who "you forgave, and I won't forget," nevertheless.
