Wild Fire
Laura Marling Lyrics


Chasing down a wild fire
Are you trying to make a cold liar out of me?
You want to get high?
You overcome those desires, before you come to me

I think your mama's kinda sad
And your papa's kinda mean
I can take that all away
You can stop playing it out on me-ee
Me, me

She keeps a pen behind her ear
In case she's got something she really really needs to say
She puts it in a notepad
She's gonna write a book someday

Of course the only part that I want to read
Is about her time spent with me
Wouldn't you die to know how you're seen
Are you getting away with who you're trying to be?
Trying, trying to be

Of course there's things upon the Earth
That we must really try, to defend
A lonely beast
A kind heart
Something weak and on trend

I'd do it all for her for free
I need nothing back for me
There no sweeter deed may be
Than to love something enough to want to help it get free
Free, Free

Is there something on her mind?
Something she needs to get by?
Do you cry sometimes?
Do you cry sometimes?

You always say you love me most
When I don't know I'm being seen
Well maybe someday when God takes me away
I'll understand what the fuck that means

I just know your mama's kinda sad
And your papa's kinda mean
I can take it all away
You can stop playing that shit out on me
Me, me

Is there something on your mind?
Something you need to get by?
Do you cry sometimes?
Do you cry sometimes?

I know your mama's kinda sad
I know your papa's kinda mean
I would take it all away
You can stop playing that shit out on me
Me, me

I love how she drops some of her notes like Bob Dylan or Lou Reed

Je Bakke

Of course there's things upon the Earth
That we must really try to defend
A lonely beast, a kind heart

Laura has been one of those constant artists for me, for 10 years now, that I've just always adored, always listened to, never momentarily forgot, always there. Forever my inspiration, forever n ever n ever! I give rather good commentary on her albums if u ever listen to them with me

Sam Gardiner

@Just1Humanoid Yes I would like to join you too.....Mia Rosa seems like a lovely woman to hang out with. :)

Morrisopolous

Listen to Noah and Wales - first days of spring. You can hear the singers heart breaking over his split with Laura Marling. It's quite extraordinary

Just1Humanoid

ah, would love to listen to her albums with you. I guess I miss interacting with strangers, even more so nowadays... :) Cheers from Georgia
