Laura Marling Once

In the land I now know to be mine

There the heart is so dark it’s near blind

When I think about the life I’ve left behind

I still raise no praise to the sky

With my eyes on the prize of your bed

When all that’s needed saying has been said

When I think about the life that I have led

I laid down to the sound of the the wise

Once, once is enough to break you

Once, once is enough to make you think twice

About laying your love out on the line

With all I now know to be true

And all I’ve figured out about you

All the crazy things a mind can do

I laid down to the sound of the truth

Once, once is enough to break you

Once, once is enough to make you think twice

About laying your little love out on the line

O, I was a child once

O, I was happy young

When all I didn’t know needed doing

Had been done
