What He Wrote
Laura Marling Lyrics


Forgive me, Hera, I cannot stay
He cut out my tongue
There is nothing to save
Love me, oh Lord
He threw me away
He laughed at my sins, in his arms I must stay

He wrote
I am broke
Please send for me
But I am broken too
And spoken for
Do not tempt me

Her skin is white and I'm light as the sun
So holy light shines on the things, you have done

So I asked him how he became this man
How did he learn to hold fruit in his hands?
And where is the lamb that gave you your name?
He had to leave, though I begged him to stay

Left me alone, when I needed the light
Fell to my knees, and I wept for my life
If he had've stayed, you might understand
If he had've stayed, you never would have taken my hand

He wrote
I'm low
Please send for me
But I'm broken too
And spoken for
Do not tempt me

And where is the lamb, that gave you your name?
He had to leave, though I begged him to stay

Begged him to stay in my cold wooden grip
Begged him to stay by the light of this ship
Me fighting him, fighting life, fighting dawn
And the waves came and stole him and took him to war

He wrote
I'm broke
Please send for me
But I'm broken too
And spoken for
Do not tempt me

Forgive me, Hera, I cannot stay
Cut out my tongue, there is nothing to save
Love me, oh Lord
He threw me away
He laughed at my sins, in his arms I must stay

We write
That's all right
I miss his smell

We speak
When spoken to
That suits us well
That suits us well
That suits me well

"What He Wrote"

Forgive me, Hera, I cannot stay
He cut out my tongue
There is nothing to say

Love me, oh Lord
He threw me away
He laughed at my sins
In his arms I must stay

He wrote
I'm broke
Please send for me
But I am broken too
And spoken for
Do not tempt me

Her skin is white
And I'm light as the sun
So holy light shines on the things you have done
So I asked him how he became this man
How did he learn to hold fruit in his hands?
And where is the lamb that gave you your name?
He had to leave though I begged him to stay

Left me alone when I needed the light
Fell to my knees and I wept for my life
If he had have stayed you might understand
If he had have stayed you never would have taken my hand

He wrote
I'm low, please send for me
But I am broken too
And spoken for
Do not tempt me
And where is the lamb that gave you your name?
He had to leave though I begged him to stay

Begged him to stay in my cold wooden grip
Begged him to stay by the light of this ship
Me fighting him, fighting light, fighting dawn
And the waves came and stole him and took him to war

He wrote
I'm broke
Please send for me
But I'm broken too
And spoken for
Do not tempt me

Forgive me Hera, I cannot stay
He cut out my tongue
There is nothing to save
Love me, oh Lord, he threw me away
He laughed at my sins
In his arms I must say

We write
That's alright
I miss his smell
We speak when spoken to
And that suits us well

That suits us well
That suits me well


Lyrics for you, love.

Lyrics
Forgive me, Hera, I cannot stay,
He cut out my tongue, there is nothing to say,
Love me, oh Lord, he threw me away,
He laughed at my sins, in his arms I must stay.

He wrote: 'I'm broke, please send for me.'
But I'm broke in two, and spoken for, do not tempt me.

Her skin is white, and I'm light as the sun,
So holy light shines on the things you have done.
So I asked him, how he became this man?
How did he learn to hold fruit in his hands?
And where is the lamb that gave you your name?
He had to leave, though I begged him to stay.

Left me alone, when I needed the light,
Fell to my knees, and I wept for my life,
If he had of stayed, you might understand,
If he had of stayed, you never would have taken my hand.

He wrote: 'I'm low, please send for me.'
But I'm broke in two, and spoken for, do not tempt me.

And where is the lamb that gave you your name?
He had to leave, though I begged him to stay.
Begged him to stay, in my cold wooden grip,
Begged him to stay by the light of this ship.
Me fighting him, fighting life, fighting dawn,
And the waves came and stole him and took him to war.

He wrote: 'I'm broke, please send for me.'
But I'm broke in two, and spoken for, do not tempt me.

Forgive me, Hera, I cannot stay,
He cut out my tongue, there is nothing to say,
Love me, oh Lord, he threw me away,
He laughed at my sins, in his arms I must stay.

We write, that's alright, I miss his smell.
We speak, when spoken to, that suits us well.
That suits us well.
That suits me well.
