On this sweet-sounding ballad of a woman ending her marriage with quiet devastation, Laura Marling recounts:
I'm sorry, my darling, my mind, it has been changed
Release me from this unbearable pain
Marling's mother, a music teacher, had a habit of putting coins in a pot above the laundry machine, which served as inspiration for the song. The pot was a "running away fund" in case she ever felt the need to escape the marriage. Marling recalled to the BBC she was reminiscing with her two sisters over dinner one night about their mom's stash.
"It added up to like £350 or something - by no means enough to run away with - but that was her collection over a lifetime," she said. "And I just thought that was so tragic in a perfect way, that generation's attempt at carving out their own little bit of freedom."
