DROUGHT IS OVER

Laura Marling

*As performed at Meltdown Festival 18 June 2016.

Walking down my street
Transcended by my footsteps
Entranced by my feet
I'm afraid that you're not coming
I'm afraid that I'm too hard
I'm afraid that if I love you
And I'm protective of my heart

I love you, winter morning
I love you, summer rain
I've been afraid that you're not coming
The sun always came again

Drought is over
The rains came
This loneliness is over
And I can love again

Thought I could see the future
I was writing it right now
But older and wiser
I see I do not have that power

I love you, passing stranger
And we may never pass again
For that moment that you're near me
I will love you like a friend

Drought is over
The rains came
Loneliness is over
You can love again
You can love again

You can love again
You will love again
