DRINKING ALONE (IS A HOPE)

Laura Marling

I've been thinking On my wandering
On the way home
From your house
That I love you
And why I do,
And if there'll ever
Be someone else

You're young and you're stable
Stand up to your labour
You're young and you're able
But you need you a saviour
O you need you a saviour

Young believers
Come and see her
She has pushed him
To the ground
Though with one hand
He could break her
With one hand
Split her in two

But the reason that we love him
Is a hope he don't want to
Is a hope he don't want to

And can you find for me
A higher thing?
So I can love he
Who will not fight for me
'Cause I do not believe
Believe that I love he
So fight for me,
Think and feel for me

No I do not love thee,
But believe that I love you
But believe that I love you

And when you're drinking alone
No it's bad for my soul
Took him back to a year ago
Throwing stones at my window

Ask me demon
To hear you moaning on
Yes I heard the songs
Like bullets to me
Put a calm in me
Knowing it was he
Who was fucking crazy

You're young and you're stable
Stand up to your labour
