SOULLESS CHILD

Laura Marling


You won’t even look at yourself
In the mirror anymore.
Can't tell dream from reality.
I couldn't take it
So i opened your door.
I saw things i should never see.
Someone you look up to
crying in their bed,
Someone you want to be
losing their head.

Soulless Child once so wild
Now a shadow of what they used to be.
They used to be so close to me.
Soulless Child once so wild
Now a ghost roaming endless halls
And thinking that she gets no calls.

You won’t even look at me
In the eye anymore
You can't be seriously losing.
You keep on telling me
That I’m losing anymore.
Oh you tease and you let it be.

Someone you look up to
crying in their bed.
Someone you want to be
losing their head.

Soulless Child once so wild
Now a shadow of what they used to be.
They used to be so close to me.
Soulless Child once so wild
Now a ghost wandering endless halls
Thinking that you get no calls.

You won’t even look at yourself
In the mirror anymore.
Can't tell dream from reality.
I couldn't take it
So i opened your door.
I saw things i should never see.
Someone you look up to
Crying in their bed,
Someone you aspire to be
Losing their head.

Soulless Child once so wild
Now a shadow of what they used to be,
They used to be so close to me.
Soulless Child once so wild
Now a shadow of what they used to be,
They used to be so close to me.

Soulless Child once so wild.
