TO BE A WOMAN

Laura Marling


I may have taken a hit
But I'm willing and blind
O, a little girl took a little chunk
Right out of my side

I feel a bond between us
I have felt like you do
I know better than to take it away from you
Girl, little girl, you need to learn, little girl
What it is to be a woman

I have right
The only one in my life
A right to what is rightfully mine
Untainted, untempting, and sober

I will never touch that skin again
I will never feel that way again
I will never look into the face
Of my father or my friends
And be able to say, I'm okay, I'm okay
I don't feel pain anyway
Not anymore, anyway

And I'm not dead yet
But I could be soon
And all I want to do
Is put my arms around you
Little girl, you got screwed
Girl, little girl, you need to learn, little girl
What it is to be a woman
