WHO AM I?

Laura Marling

Marling performed this early version of
I WAS JUST A CARD in Denver in 2010.

Never felt a solid hand
'till I found a man
'till I found a man
of mine, doubting you
I was looking at you,
thinking, who am I?

Never knew the sky was white
'till I took that flight
'till I took that flight,
doubting you
you were looking at me,
thinking, who is she?

I was just a card,
looking at the stars
looking them from Mars
and you know - you know
I know - I know
something about you
that you don't want me to know

Could've sworn I had that man
when he took my hand
when he took my hand,
doubting you
you were looking at me,
thinking, who is she?

Didn't even see the night
'till I said goodbye
'till I said goodbye to him tonight

I was just a card
caught up in the stars
looking them from Mars
and he knows - he knows
we know - we know
something about me
that I don't want you to know

Thought I felt a solid hand
when I found a man
when I found a man
of mine, doubting you
I was looking at you,
thinking, who am I?

Above is a dance video for "I Was Just A Card" directed by Kate Jablonski of Chicago's BEYOND WORDS DANCE COMPANY, and photographer Brian Lipchik.

I WAS JUST A CARD

Laura Marling

I was just a card
Caught up in the stars
Looking down to Mars.
You know, you know
I know, I know something
About you
That you don't want me to know.

Never found a solid hand
'till I found that man
'till I found that man of mine.
You were looking at me, thinking,
"Who am I?"

Never knew the sky was white
'till I took that flight
'till I took that flight to him
Tonight.

I was just a card
Caught up in the stars
Looking down from Mars.
You know, you know
He knows, he knows something
About me
That I don't want him to know.

Could've sworn I had that man
When he took my hand
When he took my hand down near you.
You were looking at me, thinking
"Who is she?"

I didn't even see the night
'till I said goodbye
'till I said goodbye to him
Tonight.
