Night Terror
Laura Marling Lyrics


I woke up and he was screaming, I'd left him dreaming
I roll over and shake him tightly and whisper
If they want you, oh, they're gonna have to fight me
Oh, fight me

I woke up on a bench on Shepherd's Bush Green
Oh, a candle at my chest and a hand on his knee
I got up it was dark, there's no one in the park at this hour
How do I keep finding myself here?
Oh, fight me

If I look back and he is screaming, I'd left him dreaming
The dangers fade
And I'll run back and shake him tightly and scream
If they want him, oh, they're gonna have to fight me
Oh, fight me

But if I wake up on a bench on Shepherd's Bush Green
Oh, a candle at my chest and a hand on his knee
I'll roll over and hold him tightly and scream
If you want him, oh, you're gonna have to fight me
Oh, fight me

Don't fight me

I've been listening to this song for years and it still tears me up inside

Still

John Bainbridge

Damn... I stumbled on this song randomly, and I couldn't be happier that I did.
This is amazing.

I had the exact same experience, only several years back. The tune, her voice, and even the music video, are all so haunting with just the right amount of eerie

Jean Paiva

I can not describe the feeling when the solo violin begins

Andmoreagain

One of those songs that stay with you to haunt you, to make you reveal your true self to yourself, to cry your soul and eyes out to. I can't even define what I feel while listening to it. It's like the hardest burden and the feeling of complete freedom and relief simultaneously. It just transcends space and time.

She is one of the best singer/songwriters I have ever heard. Lyrically amazing

Gingerburney

This music amkes me feel like I've been let into this very special room, where there is love and something mysterious and very very precious.

Haunting.The first time we heard this on the radio, we had to pull the van over. Such a great song, really atmospheric :)

Simon Crabb
