Laura Marling – Typical lyrics

Again I let jealousy blind me today.
My oldest friend, and I blew her away
Just a few kind words, and all I could say
Was I've known you, what, 10 years and it feels like a day

And I watched her cry
Torn apart at the hands of a child

Again I used arrogance as something to depend
Condemned all religion to a pitiless end
And a politician's resonance rang through my mind
Patriotic in one sense, in the other just blind

And oh, so many die
Torn apart at the hands of a child
I'll keep on going, I've got nothing to lose
I gave up morals when I took up you.
And it's boring to hear of another young truth
What a typically shit thing to do

And I was so shallow to the one man who stuck around
Sunk so low that I nearly drowned
And I screamed of his heart when he wasn't around
Consoled him recklessly, I knew he was down

Oh, I watched him cry
A broken heart at the hands of a child
And I'll keep on going, I've got nothing to lose
I gave up morals when I took up you
And it's boring to hear of another young truth
What a typically shit thing to do

And I have felt heartbreak too and I know what it feels like
And I have felt heartbreak, now you can leave me alone, right?
I have felt loneliness and I know what it feels like

And I'll keep on going, I've got nothing to lose
I gave up morals when I took up booze
And it's boring to hear of another young truth
What a typically shit thing to do
