Tap at My Window
Laura Marling Lyrics


He taps at my window
Willing that I let him in
I don't think I will though
My heart's taken, I won't tell him again.
Maybe I'll write him a story
And maybe I'll fall asleep in his arms.
Maybe I'll wake up lonely and fall unawake again.

And until you calm me down
Race around this town
Trying to find, oh, an emotion you cannot deny.
I will not have him treat me this way.

And Mother, I blame you.
Therein trying to be you again
For I have become you,
And I know every part of the game

And Father, I love you
But how can you watch as I push her away?
I cannot forgive you for bringing me up this way.

Maybe I'll write them a story
And maybe I'll fall asleep in his arms.
Maybe I'll wake up lonely and fall un-awake again.

And until you calm me down
I race around this town
Until you calm me down
I race around this town
Trying to find, oh, an emotion you cannot deny
I will not have them treat me this way.

So tap at my window,
Maybe I might let you in.
I don't think I will though,
My heart's taken, I won't tell you again
