MAN SINGS ABOUT ROMANCE

Laura Marling

No video is available of Marling (or anyone else) doing this song.

Get up and play the fool
Audience won't bring you down
That's right, you do what you do
While no one else is around

These people, are my people, watch how we roll
don't mess 'em up, they're young, life's only just begun
And for the record we were messed up, on our own
He takes the fakes and puts them in their place
And he swiftly moves along
He's known around
These parts as a breaker of social season hearts
Yeah we've spoke and yeah we get along

God I could fall for a man that can sing about
Love and depression among other things
And a man who sings about romance
Woman he hardly knows
What good does it bring
This is the life that he chose

I don't get happy people, why do they care?
They cant be happy all the time, they're really just not there
And they're all loved up on some drug and I
hope that it's not love because I like 'em wrapped up and not really there
I like them them roughed up, a little fucked up, if it can be arranged
As high as a kite and is willing to fight as a man of his age

God I could fall for a man that can sing about
Love and depression among other things
And a man who sings about romance
Woman he hardly knows
What good does it bring
This is the life that he chose

A man sings about romance
Woman he hardly knows
What good can it bring
This is the life that he chose

And I like 'em wrapped up
A little bit fucked up if it can be arranged
As high as a kite and as willing to fight as a man of his age
