Master Hunter

Album: Once I Was An Eagle (2013)
  • This track finds Marling addressing her lover with a curled lip: "Give me something. Let me go. Tell me something I don't know." The Observer asked the singer if this is how she approaches relationships? "I sound awful saying it but I think it can be like that," Marling replied. "I see a lot of people in unstimulating relationships. And not just boyfriend-girlfriend relationships. They find themselves in stagnant friendships. If people were a little less scared [of ending things] they'd get more out of life... You meet the right person at the right time and they fulfil a certain something in your life. You fulfil something in theirs. But there's a time limit to that. Unless you choose to be bloody good company for the rest of your life, do you know what I mean?"
