NATURE OF DUST

Laura Marling

The beginning of the song (below) did not make it onto the album. The opening line of this little poem is a bit reminiscent of BLOOD ON THE TRACKS.

like all great things
it started with a storm
a love lost, a battle and a boy
from true love's (?) I have been
and i swore i'd never love again
like a good girl should
of course I knew I would
and I fell into the arms
of someone I never should
his eyes are as tender as the lamb's
his touch is as good as any man's
his love and his kindness
you had to understand in time
In the hope that they
might approve the plan
too late to start
you broke my heart
I will never break it myself.

It's the nature of dust
that's all about us
it's all about me
and it's all about love
and that's a dangerous mix
if you don't get it right
and it'll come and get you in the dead of the night.

And when they leave, and they do
o it's bad, o it's bad
it's the nature of dust
that is all about us
it's all about me
and it's all about love
and that's a dangerous mix
if you don't get it right
and it'll come and get you in the dead of the night.

O it's a dangerous mix
if you don't get it right
and it'll come and get you
and take your life.
and when they leave, o and they do,
o it's bad, o it's bad
o it's bad.
