I Was Just a Card

Album: A Creature I Don't Know (2011)
  • I was just a card, caught up in the stars,
    Looking down to Mars.
    You know, you know
    I know, I know something
    About you that you don't want me to know.

    Never found a solid hand till I found that man,
    Till I found that man of mine.
    You were looking at me, thinking,
    "Who am I?"

    Never knew the sky was white till I took that flight,
    Till I took that flight to him,

    I was just a card, caught up in the stars,
    Looking down to Mars.
    You know, you know
    He knows, he knows something
    About me that I don't want him to know.

    Could've sworn I had that man when he took my hand,
    When he took my hand down near you.
    You were looking at me, thinking,
    "Who is she?"

    Didn't even see the night till I said goodbye,
    Till I said goodbye to him,
    Tonight. Writer/s: LAURA BEATRICE MARLING
