Blackberry Stone
Laura Marling Lyrics


Well I, own this field
And I wrote this sky
And I have no reason, to reason with you

I'd be sad that I never held your hand as you were lowered
But I'd understand that I'd never let it go
I'd be sad that I never held your hand as you were lowered
But I'd understand that the world does what it does

And you never did learn to let the little things go
And you never did learn to let me be
And you never did learn to let little people grow
And you never did learn how to see

But I whisper that I love this man
Now and for forever to your soul as it floats out of the window
To the world that you turned your back on
To the world that never really let you be

And I am Laura now, and Laura still
And you did always say that one day I would suffer
You did always say that people get their pay
You did always say that I was going places
And that you wouldn't have it any other way

But I couldn't turn my back on a world for what I like, wouldn't let me
But I couldn't turn my back on a world for what I like, I needed

And I couldn't turn my back on a world for what I like, wouldn't let me
And I couldn't turn my back on a world for what I like, I needed

And I shouldn't turn my back on the sweet smelling blackberry stone

Well I, own this field,
And I, wrote this sky,
And I, have no reason to reason with you.

I'd be sad that I never held your hand as you were lowered, but I'd
Understand that I'd never let it go.

I'd be sad that I never held your hand as you were lowered, but I'd
Understand the world does what it does.

And you never did learn to let the little things go,
And you never did learn to let me be,
And you never did learn to let little people grow,
And you never did learn how to see.

But I'd whisper that I love this night now and for forever,
To your soul as it floats out of the window,
To the world that you turned your back on,
To the world that never really let you be.

And I am lower now and lower still,
And you did always say that one day I would suffer,
Did always say that people get their pay.
You did always say that I was going places,
And that you wouldn't have it any other way.

But I couldn't turn my back on the world for what I like, wouldn't let me.
But I couldn't turn my back on the world for what I like, I needed.

And I couldn't turn my back on the world for what I like, wouldn't let me
And I couldn't turn my back on the world for what I like, I needed.

And I shouldn't turn my back on the sweet smelling blackberry stone.

Thank you Laura Marling for this song actually your whole album helped me get thru watching my mom pass last year.

John Taylor

This is like an old English folk song ... She has done a very good job of making it sound like it could of been written 400 years ago ...

Baws. If somebody wrote that 400 year ago they would've been burned at the stake. Ya fuckwit.

Miguel Marquez

I LOVE that chord progression. The beginning is so pretty :)

OH MARLY

Ellie Higg

I stood at the front row of her set at Glastonbury, sobbing my heart out to this song. I hope I remember it all my life.
