False Hope
Laura Marling Lyrics


Is it still okay that I don't know how to be alone?
Would it be okay if I'd just came home tonight?
We stay in the apartment on the upper west side
And my worst problem is I don't sleep at night
Woman downstairs just lost her mind
And I don't care how, I surely don't care why
Why I know false hope
Why I know false hope

A storm hits the city and the lights go out
Before I can prepare
The whole downtown looks dark like no one lives there
We stay in the apartment on the upper west side
And my worst problem is I don't sleep at night
The woman downstairs just lost her mind,
And I don't care how, I surely don't care why
Why I know false hope
Why I know false hope

She'll be alright tomorrow
Neither of us is gonna sleep tonight
We've false hope
I hear you begging through the wall
A dying animal's last call

Is it still okay that I don't know how to be at all?
There's a party uptown but I just don't feel like I belong at all
Do I?
We stay in the apartment on the upper west side
And my worst problem is I don't sleep at night
The woman downstairs just lost her mind,
And I don't care how, I surely don't care why
Why I know false hope
Why I know false hope

I love her.. Her songs seem to come in the exact time I need them..
This song feels so nostalgic that it makes me wanna melt into memories, but alas, it's false hope..

She never disappoints. Never.

Lucent Membrane

There’s a moment that reminded me of early PJ Harvey-songs. I love it! Especially the switch to electric, very exciting. (And she looks utterly beautiful.)

Keith Bate

@LouiseMeow I saw Polly in 1992 on the "dry tour" and I agree with you.

TheForrbidenFruit

Never disappointing, always innovating and moving forward with her sound but never deviating from her true self as an artist. Laura you truly are a goddess and an inspiration!

Weilan Yang

I'll be happy to see any change made by Laura on her own- from haircut, dressing to going electric. 

Marion Chastelas

Beautiful guitar, amazing voice, great great song, I love it !

Iván Núñez

I'd love to hear something from Laura & Ryan Adams together.

Jenson Tagg

Iván Núñez they were both on Abbey Road sessions in 2011 and she did harmonies on Oh My Sweet Carolina
