I Speak Because I Can

Album: I Speak Because I Can (2010)
  • 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 Writer/s: LAURA BEATRICE MARLING
