Laura Marling – New Romantic lyrics

I know I said I love you, but I'm thinking I was wrong,
I'm the first to admit that I'm still pretty young,
And I never meant to hurt you when I wrote you 10 love songs.
By a guy that I could never get 'cause his girlfriend was pretty fit
And everyone who knew her loved her so.
And I made you leave her for me, and now I'm feeling pretty mean,
But my mind has fucked me over more times than any man could ever know.

Maybe I should give up, give in.
Give up trying to be thin.
Give up and turn into my mother,
God knows I love her.

And I'm sorry to which ever man should meet my sorry state.
Watch my steady lonesome gait and beware.
I will never love a man cause love and pain go hand in hand
And I can't do it, again.

So we stayed up late one night, to try and get our problems right,
But I couldn't get into his head just what was going through my mind,
And I think he knew where I was going, he put Bryan Adams on
I think he thinks it makes me weak but it only ever makes me strong,
I've got this friend and he sounds just like him,
And he's the man I'd leave you for, the man that I just adore like you.
The same man he turns to me, said "I've got to tell you how I feel,
If god could make the perfect girl for me it would be you. "
And my god told me not tell about how much do you love your fella.
I don't know more every day
Not in this new romantic way.

I'll always be your first love, you'll always be my first love.

But I'm sorry to which ever man should meet my sorry state
Watch my steady lonesome gait and beware,
I will never love a man cause love and pain go hand in hand, and I can't do it again.
I will never love a man cause I could never hurt a man,
Not in this new romantic way.
