YOUR ONLY DOLL

by Laura Marling

I fell into the street
Poison in my veins
Clamber to my feet
And into the night again
Back to my home
Back to my owner
Who screams at my tardiness,
Put his hands to the sky

And says
"What can I do, with a girl
If she refuses to be mine?"

In his bed I am queen
Unobtainable me
Sexual being
Human with feelings
The two are not me
The two will not be mine

"And what can you do
With a girl, if she
Refuses to be mine?"

Put his hand on my shirt
Hand on my face
My head to the wall
When you've broken your only doll

And what will you do
With a girl
If she's refusing to be alive?

"And you've broken your only doll
And what will you do with a girl
If she's refusing to be mine?"
