LOLITA

Laura Marling

(Very early Marling song, unreleased.)

Seeing you there with your arms entwined
A fool once said that love is blind
But no one can blind me from this evil I see
No one can blind me from this hell I'm in
Come to know that she's your new Lolita
I could wait till you no longer need her
But I realize I'm just a-gonna lose ya
So alone I've reached my sad conclusion
O, was good then, but it's over now
It was good then, but it's over now

All your friends think we're worth it
To break the heart of another
Stop staring out at the rain
Did you love her? Did you love her?

Seeing you there with your hand on her waist
A place that once was mine
Do you remember in lost and lonely times
I'd reach up for your back and you would reach for mine
And I bet when she does it, it's not half as good as me
And when she does, it reminds you how we used to be
You realise that she's your new Lolita
And you know that you will always need her
O, was good then, but it's over now
It was good then, but it's over now

All your friends think we're worth it
To break the heart of another
Stop staring out at the rain
Did you love her? Did you love her?
