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.

This version of the lyric was sung by Marling in a live session
at KEXP in Seattle on 15 May 2013.

LITTLE LOVE CASTER

Laura Marling


yes i am
yes i am a master
i had you, bad man
little love
little love casting
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

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"

dreamers know you best
they might know you best and love you most
but i would breathe you in
i would breathe you in and be your ghost

you are new to me
you are new to me
and i can't seem to say
"i'd like you to stay"

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