Dierdre Kaye reviewed Marling's Where Can I Go? for She Knows Entertainment. Here's a quote:

Her [Marling's] simple guitar playing builds into the driving and triumphant sound of an organ (played by the also fantastically folk Pete Roe, I'd wager). All this to say: The song would not be out of place on Joni Mitchell's album, Blue. (Blue, by the way, was also a fourth album.)

WHERE CAN I GO?

Laura Marling

I was a daddy's girl sometime
But I loved my momma till the end of the line
I am cold and I am bright
It's a curse if mine to be sad at night
It's a curse of mine to be sad at night

Late at night he'll come to me
And he'll tell me I'm alone
Don't you think I don't already know

All I see is road
No one takes me home
Where, where can I go?

Truth about desire they say
Is the need to breathe for another day
Truth I heard about regret
It's the hardest truth I've come to yet

Late at night he'll come to me
And he'll tell me I'm alone
Don't you think I don't already know

All I hear are woes
There's something I don't know
Where, where can I go?

All I see is road
No one takes me home
Where, where can I go?

If I feel like I want to be alone
If I feel like I'm better fought than won
Pick up your rope and jump for Rosie
She's just a sweet thing with a curl
It's just about a woman with her clothes on
You take them off and she's a girl

All I hear are woes
There's something I don't know
Where, where can I go?
