Laura Marling – I Was An Eagle lyrics

[verse 1]
So your grandmother sounds to me
A woman I would be proud to be
And you say she reminds you of me
Every little boy is so naïve

[chorus]
I will not be a victim of romance
I will not be a victim of circumstance
Chance or circumstance or romance, or any man
Who could get his dirty little hands on me
Oh, no

[verse 2]
So your grandfather sounds like me
Head up shoulders back and proud to be
Every little girl is so naïve
Falling in love with the first man that she sees

[chorus]
I will not be a victim of romance
I will not be a victim of circumstance
Chance or circumstance or romance, or any man
Who could get his dirty little hands on me
Oh, no

[bridge]
When we were in love (if we were)
When we were in love
I was an eagle
And you were a dove

[verse 3]
Today I will feel something other than regret
Pass me a glass and half-smoked cigarette
I've damn near got no dignity left
I've damn near got no dignity left

[chorus]
I will not be a victim of romance
I will not be a victim of circumstance
Chance or romance or circumstance, or any man
Who could get his dirty little hands on me
Oh, no

[bridge]
When we were in love (if we were)
When we were in love
I was an eagle
And you were a dove

When we were in love (if we were)
When we were in love
You were a dove
And I rose above you and preyed
