Soothing
Laura Marling Lyrics


Oh, my hopeless wanderer
You can't come in
You don't live here anymore
Oh, 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

You can't come in
You don't live here anymore

Writer(s): Blake Mills, Laura Marling

Oh, my hopeless wanderer
You can't come in
You don't live here anymore
Oh, some creepy conjurer

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

You can't come in
You don't live here anymore

Oh, my hopeless wanderer
You can't come in
You don't live here anymore
Oh, 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
You can't come in
You don't live here anymore

This woman cannot compose a bad song even if she wants to

@Robert Wilson Hah! So true. I was watching an old documentary film recently about Picasso "making a masterpiece". To my eyes it looked like a child's drawing, but even if you love that sort of thing the idea that you're about to watch someone create a masterpiece is ridiculous. Surely you have to wait until it's finished, then assess the work before declaring it a great work of art? But no, apparently if the great Picasso is sitting in front of a blank canvas then it'll definitely be a masterpiece! Ass kissing at its finest. smh

@nagualdesign I 100% agree. None of these people want to be called gods. Most music is trivial in reality, often made in fact by people who were teenagers at the time and what do teenagers know?. Same with great art - Van Gogh sold one picture in his lifetime. The rest of his 900 paintings were unsold. Personally I like Van Gogh but I recognise it's just drawings.

@Robert Wilson I agree. Not with your first point — I love this song — but your point about ass kissing, and people who seem to think in absolutes about their own tastes. It actually annoys me a bit when people tell me I have good taste in music, rather than similar taste to them.

I've been watching a lot of John Lennon recently. Sure, he's a legend and I love most of his work, but when people say things like he's a "god"... I think John himself would find that beyond ridiculous. I think he'd be mortified. He was just a guy who wrote songs, flawed like all of us. He was once a smack head, in his own admission he was pretty selfish, Yoko wrote Imagine and he didn't give her credit for years... I could go on.

Some people need to get a sense of perspective and accept that other people have different opinions, and it isn't rude to state them.

@Nicholas Just saying what I think. I like other Laura Marling songs. All music videos are full of fans kissing-ass.

The key change when she sings "my god is brooding" gives me chills, it's such a beautiful relief from the tension of the chorus.

Like always, fucking brilliant.

When you see the artists you follow for a long time evolve their style and astonish you

What you're hearing is the production of Blake Mills. Look him up you won't regret it.
