Made by Maid
Laura Marling Lyrics

They dance like sirens, hoping the sun would come out again
And I was born in the fog of that day
Can they hear a babe over all the faith,
Or have they forgot what it was that they made

Crawled out of the fog, found a river,
Found a log and floated away
Didn't think I'd be coming back this way
But my feet are resolute;
Found their root and brought me back to its place

And on the hill where I was born,
There is no rose but just a thorn;
They cut it off each year and give it away

But can they hear a babe after all these days,
Or have they forgot what it was that they made

So left to wander blind, I find myself in cautious times,
And they say, Love's labor is never lost; labor on to this very day.
So I walk into the fog, found a babe atop a log and all alone
Took him under, took him on,
Taught him everything about the world I'd come to know

And he blames me for every wrong ever he made
I am blamed for every wrong ever he made
Forgive me I am only a maid
Forgive me I am only a maid

But I can see a babe under all that blame
And I am forgot from the day I am laid

Laura Marling's melodies and voice seep deep into my soul, and transform me...

Hannah Keeley

memories have just ruined Marling for me. Will never listen to her in the same way again


This song is just so beautifully written. And sang so well too. Underrated.


this is such a beautiful album.

don't know 101

I found this from reading the titles of the album by Laura marling on my dad's vinyls, and I immediately thought i loved the names and so I listened and, a hole new genre of music has been revealed to me (from a while ago anyway, the new stuff does not compare)
