I Speak Because I Can - Laura Marling

My husband left me last night
Left me a poor and lonely wife
I cooked the meals and he got the life
And now I'm just out for the rest of my time
for me
for he
for my.

I speak because I can
to anyone I trust enough to listen.
You speak because you can
To anyone who'll hear what you say.
I swear it was not my choice
I used to be so kind.

Never road my bike down to the sea
Never finished that letter I was writing.
Never got up and shared anything
for me
for he
for my.

Oh graceful sleeper
Midnight dreamer
I'm flawed by your sound.
I'm flawed by your sound.

I swear it was not my choice.
To reach out for someone wise.
I used to be so kind.
I used to be so kind.

In the breaking of the morning you'll be dancing on the soft lawn
You'll be sinking at the anchor that stopped you from taking my gold
You'll be running up the highway singing "I'm the king the king of you all!"
When you look back to where you started I'll be there waving you on.

I never road my bike down to the sea
Never quite figured out what I believe
Never got up and shared anything
For me
For he
For my.
