Kate Rusby – The Lark lyrics
Out in the field where the lark it flies,
Over the earth where my heart it lies,
Oh how it sings when the west wind blows,
Out in the field where no-one goes.

Oh how I'm cold will you let me in,
If you could hear me speak, where I would begin,
Time it is past now and I roam free,
Is it wrong to wish you still need me,
Is it wrong to wish you still need me.

Out in the field where the lark it sings,
There I was waiting for all love brings,
There I stood and there I fell,
Out in the field that I know well.

Oh how I'm cold will you let me in,
If you could hear me speak, where I would begin,
Time it is past now and I roam free,
Is it wrong to wish you still need me,
Is it wrong to wish you still need me.

Out in the field where the lark resides,
Here I'll remain where my heart can hide,
Only the lark and the west wind know,
I'm in this field where no-one goes.

Oh how I'm cold will you let me in,
If you could hear me speak, where I would begin,
Time it is past now and I roam free,
Is it wrong to wish you still need me,
Is it wrong to wish you still need me

    I think that the song is sung from the perspective of a ghost. The ghost is wondering the field where it died and looks in on its family, wondering if it is wrong that it wants the family to need them still. It appears to have made the field its home.

    Personal Interpretation: I'm going through some very hard times with my mom, and this song reminds me of that. Not being able to express feelings the right way (If you could hear me speak, where would I begin), feeling neglected (Oh how I'm cold, will you let me in), growing up (Time it is past now and I roam free). I know this is just my interpretation of a love song, but it means so much to me. Very grateful for having found this as an expression of what's going on.
