BLEED ME DRY

by Laura Marling

I have left so many men asking why
Why I go and change my mind overnight
They can't figure me out
They'll end themselves with doubt

Well it's love that they sought
And I was taught
Not to give it away
Unless you're sure

What am I to do if I don't want to be alone?
How can I be sure what it is I don't yet know?
I can't figure it out
I'll end myself with doubt

Well it's love that I need
And to love you have to bleed
I'm not sure I've got a drop to spare

Can you help me?
Can you help me?
Anything you've got is gonna help this penny drop

I'd near done believing when I found you
Given up the ghost of anything that love can do
I couldn't get out of bed
I was all up in my head
Well it's love that I need
And to love you have to bleed
And I'm not sure I've got a drop to spare

Can you help me?
Can you help me?
Anything you've got is gonna help this penny drop

I won't leave you in the night
I won't leave you asking why
If it's love that you need
Your love is safe with me
Just don't go bleeding me dry

Well it's love that you need
Your love is safe with me
Just don't go bleeding me dry
