FOR YOU

Laura Marling

I took pictures of you
Long before I met you
Just a fragment of my mind

I hit cold air for you
Almost every night
Precious things are hard to find

It was just an evening
Much like any else
When you came into my life

It takes one to know one
And I saw you there
As I had seen you all my life

I thank a God I've never met
Never loved, never wanted For you
I write it so I don't forget
Never let it get away
I wear a picture of you
Just to keep you safe

Now that I have you
I will not forget
What a miracle you are

No childish expectation
Love is not the answer
But the line that marks the start

I thank a God I've never met
Never loved, never wanted For you
I write it so I don't forget
Never let it get away
I keep a picture of you
Just to keep you safe

I thank a God I've never met
Never loved, never wanted
I write it so I won't forget
Never let it get away
I keep a picture of you
Just to keep you safe

I thank a God I've never met
Never loved, never wanted
I sing it so I won't forget
Never let it get away
I keep a picture of you
Just to keep you safe
