HELD DOWN

Laura Marling

I woke up, it was four in the morning
Clear as all hell that you'd already gone
"You know that, dear, I hate to disappear
but the days are short and the nights are getting long"

And I just meant to tell you
that I don't want to let you down
And I just meant to tell you
That I don't want to get you wrong

Think about now with my legs wrapped around you
How many times before have you seen me run?
It's a cruel kinda twist that you'd leave like this
Just drop my wrist and say, "But that's us done"

I was just gonna tell you that
I don't want to see you down
Get lost in the crowd
To be seen or unseen
Say what you mean

'Cause we all want to be here now
And we all want to be held down
And we all want to here now
And we all want to be held down

Simply a book, but you gave up a look
But I just don't care for it and I cannot get through
It's your writing again, and I'm glad old friend
I'll make sure you write me out of where you get to

I was just gonna tell you
That I don't want to see you let down
Get lost in the crowd
To be seen or unseen
Say what you mean

'Cause we all want to be here now
And we all want to be held down
And we all want to here now
And we all want to be held down

I woke up, it was four in the morning
Clear as all hell that you'd already gone
"You know that, dear, I hate to disappear
but the days are short and the nights are getting long"

And I just mean to tell you
That I don't want to let you down
Get lost in the crowd
To be seen or unseen
Say what you mean
