Laura Marling – I Speak Because I Can lyrics

My husband left me last night,
Left me a poor and lonely wife,
I cooked the meals and he got the life
And now I'm just out for the rest of my time
For me, for he, oh my.

I speak because I can, to anyone I trust enough to listen.
You speak because you can to anyone that'll hear what you say.

I swear it was not my choice,
I used to be so kind,
Never rode my bike down into the sea,
Never finished that letter I was writing.
Never got up and shared anything
For me, for he, oh my.

Graceful sleeper,
Midnight dreamer,
I'm flawed by your sound,
I'm flawed by your sound.

I swear it was not my choice,
To reach out for someone wise,
I used to be so kind,
I used to be so kind.

In the breaking of the morning,
We'll be dancing on my soft lawn,
When you're shaking out the anger that stops you from taking my call,
When you're running up the highway singing, "I'm the king, the king of you."

When you look back to where it started,
I'll be there waving you on!

Never rode my bike down into the sea,
Never quite figured out what I believe
Never got up and shared anything
For me, for he, oh my.
