OH MAMA HOW FAR I'VE COME

Laura Marling


I didn't think I'd be anyone
Oh mama how far I've come
Oh mama how far I've come
And I didn't think we'd go anywhere
Oh my darling au contraire
Oh my darling au contraire

I'll grow up and make someone a wife
Him and me we'll make us a life
And I'll freak out and cut off my hair
Brand new start I'll start it there

Didn't grow back for a few good years
Shed many tears, shed many tears
And I know that I shouldn't care
If people look what they see there

I know that I'm good inside
And if people don't I shouldn't mind
If people don't I shouldn't mind
Oh now mama how far I've come
I'm somebody and I love someone
I'm somebody and I love someone

And I feel the weight of a woman now
With iron bones and full of fire
And I could leave at any stage
But the weight of a woman tells me to stay
Weight of a woman tells me to stay

Oh now mama how far I've come
I'm somebody and I love someone
Oh now mama how far I've come
I'm somebody and I love someone
