About the making of the video for Soothing, Marling told Lucy Bourton of itsnicethat.com: "I was having a lot of vivid dreams, the process of digging up the unconscious side of the brain has lots of juicy nuggets in it. I’m really interested in analysis, so that probably contributed to it like a self-perpetuating thing. Everything, every bit of imagery and texture, the coloured fabric and the vines crawling through the window, has a symbolic significance within the film. The initial ideas were mine but they were handed over to this incredible choreographer Ally Green. I gave her what I wanted and she made it her own, whilst making it work for the film. The whole film is a product of many people’s talent."

SOOTHING

Laura Marling

O my hopeless wanderer
You can't come in
You don't live here anymore
O some creepy conjurer
Who touched the rim
Whose hands are in the door

I need soothing
My lips aren't moving
My God is brooding

Drawn in chalk across the floor
You made it yours
Your private door to my room
May those who find you find remorse
A change of course, a strange discord resolved

I need soothing
My lips aren't moving
My God is brooding

I banish you with love
I banish you with love>br /> You can't come in
You don't live here anymore
