Some thought the title to this song was LITTLE LIES, a phrase that does not occur in the lyric. LITTLE LOVE seemed a much more apt title. On the fourth album (ONCE I WAS AN EAGLE) Marling titled it LITTLE LOVE CASTER.

LITTLE LOVE CASTER

as sung by Marling on the album


Yes I am
Yes I am a master
I had you, bad man
Little love
Little love caster
Palm of my hand

I wish that I had
I wish that I had’ve told you then
Where my kindness ends

I will take you home
I will take you home and then
Our love spell will end

You are new to me
You are new to me
I can't seem to say
"I'd like you to stay"

Yes I am
Yes I am a master
I have you, bad man
Little love
Little love caster

They might know you best
They might know you best
And love you most

I would take you home
I would take you home
And then
I would be your ghost

I saw a lady dance yesterday
She was easily swayed
I cannot be tossed
And turned in this way
I'm not your tiny dancer

I can't seem to say
"I'd like you to stay"

I see a lady dance yesterday
She is easily swayed
I cannot be tossed
And turned in this way
I'm no one's tiny dancer

I can't seem to say
"I'd like you to stay"

I can't seem to say
"I'd like you to stay"
