An Ecstasy of Fumbling

Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous-
Almost, at times, the Fool.

 

Title: Night After Night

Laura Marling // Night after Night

I account to no one
Hold nobody’s ear
I showed you my hand once and you hit me in fear
I don’t stand for the devil
I don’t whisper in ears
I stand on the mountains and call people to hear

It’s a sudden burst of light
It’s a fate foretold
It is knowing
It is knowing…

He longs for the answers as all of us must
He longs for the woman who’ll conquer his lust
He screams in the night
I scream in the day
We weep in the evening 
And lie naked and pray

Night after night
Day after day
Nigh after night
Day after day
Night after night
Day after day

Would you watch my body weaken?
My mind drift away?

It’s a tempting communion
It’s a fate foretold
It is knowing
It is knowing
What it is that you’re told
