Once
Laura Marling Lyrics


In the land I now know to be mine
With a heart so dark it's near blind
When I think about the life I've left behind
I still raise no praise to the sky

With my eyes on the prize of your bed
When all that's needed saying has been said
When I think about the life that I have led
I lay down to the sound of the wise
Once, once is enough to break you
Once, once is enough to make you think twice
About laying your love out on the line

With all I now know to be true
And all I've figured out about you
All the crazy things a mind can do
I lay down to the sound of the truth

Once, once is enough to break you
Once, once is enough to make you think twice
About laying your little love out on the line

Oh, I was a child once
Oh, I was happy young
When all I didn't know needed doing
Had been done

In the land I now know to be mine
Where the heart's so dark, it's near blind
When I think about the life I left behind
I still raise no praise to the sky

With my eyes on the prize of your bed
When all that's needed saying has been said
When I think about the life that I have led
I laid down to the sound of the the wise

Once, once is enough to break you
Once, once is enough to make you think twice
About laying your love out on the line

With all I now know to be true
And all I've figured out about you
All the crazy things a mind can do
I laid down to the sound of the truth

Once, once is enough to break you
Once, once is enough to make you think twice
About laying your little love out on the line

Oh, I was a child once
Oh, I was happy young
When all I didn't know needed doing
Had been done

I love how the audience are completely silent throughout and then burst into rapturous applause when she's finished. How many artists could hold an audience with just their voice and an acoustic guitar the way Laura Marling does? Divine.

she has the most wonderful voice of this whole universe.

William V. Wilson

The best female songwriter. Or maybe just the best.

Spellbinding, breathtaking. Time stops when Laura Marling sings.

Joni Mitchell lives in Laura....so beautiful indeed.

Leon Thorogate

This gig had the most fantastic, perfect sound that I have ever heard at a gig. Spine tingling from start to finish. Could hear people blinking their eyes. Pure loveliness.

is there a more evocative voice on this earth?
i think not

Many..... You would be surprised (if you would only just look a bit further)

EnosEverything

The most essential female artist working today....  The standard of her output is staggering for a lass of 24...  With each album the level of maturity jumps to a different level and now she's up there in the stratosphere... No female artist since Joni Mitchell has excited me as much with their talent as Laura does..   Kate Bush is the only other option in the major talent stakes but sadly Kate rarely records..
