ALWAYS THIS WAY

Laura Marling

I'd like to say that I could've stayed
But she didn't want me to
I'd like to know if she had to go
Or if she made a point to

It's so hard to say
Is it always this way?
Must every heart break
Like a wave on the bay

Like to think that we're all a link
In what makes the world go round
Lately I wonder if all my pondering's
Taken up too much ground

I make my own way
So at the end of the day
At least I can say
That my debts have been paid

Twenty-five years, nothing to show for it
Nothing of any weight
Twenty-five more, will I never learn from it
Never learn from my mistakes

It's too soon to say
Was I always this way?
Well at the end of the day
My debts have been paid

Now she's gone and I'm all alone
And she will not be replaced
Stare at the phone, try to carry on
But I have made my mistake

At the end of the day
At least I can say
I made my own way
And my debts have been paid
