ONLY THE STRONG

Laura Marling

Only the strong survive
Only the strong survive
Only the wrong, they live their lives
We've been here a thousand times

Wish I could go back and find
Letters I wrote you in my mind
Perhaps I could unknot us from this awful bind
Most I have forgot, or over refined

Love is a sickness killed by time
Love is a sickness killed by time
Bruises all, end up benign
Love is a sickness killed by time

I hope that you can change my mind
Had to leave this crying all behind
I hope you don't think that I'm unkind
Somebody told me
Only and only
Only the strong survive

Only the strong survive
And I won't write a woman
With a man on my mind
Hope that didn't sound too unkind

Just struggling to figure out how
Only, only, only, only
Only the strong survive

Hope that you can change my mind
I had to leave this crying all behind
I hope you don't think that I'm unkind
Somebody told me
Only and only
Only the strong survive
