Laura Marling | I Speak Because I Can
In the breaking of the morning we’ll be dancing on my soft lawn.
When you’re shaking out the anger that stops you from taking my call.
When you’re running up the highway,
Singing I’m the king, the king of you all.
When you look back to where it started,
I’ll be there waving you on.
Laura Marling | Hope In The Air
Why fear death, be scared of living,
our hearts are small and ever thinning.
There is no hope ever of winning,
oh, why fear death, be scared of living.
Laura Marling | Darkness Descends
(This song enters my blood stream and leaves me euphoric. Aural drugs.)
You’re holding bits of styrofoam | With your face painted on to your friends, | You listen to them whine and moan | About everything you can’t understand.
Can I just say I don’t fear the light, | But darkness descends once more into my life.
And suddenly we’re all alone in silence, | So I take a step away. | I look up to the falling snow | As it makes its home upon my face. | Well I wouldn’t want to ruin something I couldn’t save, | The gap will keep us safe, | The gap will keep us safe.
Step away, get me when I’m down.
And suddenly I’m five years old | And I’m just so cold I want to cry. | I haul up on my gentlemen, | Who have always been there in hard times. | They’re just not like that man of mine, | Who visit me from time to time.
My love, I treasure you.
I hear that summer’s coming back | So I stretch out my back and travel a long, | The winter though it darkens me | It is pure and clean and all I want. | I’ll apologize to the ones I love,
For leaving them when the sun comes up.
Too bright for me, darkness descends.
Oh well I’m not well again, | And once more darkness it descends. | The ground is falling under me, | And I can’t find the means to leave.
Convinced that I am going mad, | Oh I bury my head into his hands | So sure that I’m loosing faith, | Oh I clear a space in his fathers land.
You deal with God far too young, | Before you know it your life has run away.
