Song For Our Daughter

Album: Song for Our Daughter (2020)
  • Though they may want you
    To tread in their trail
    Only to see if the path they set fails
    Though they may want you to take off your clothes
    Whatever they think that the action exposed

    With your clothes on the floor
    Taking advice from some old balding bore
    You'll ask yourself
    Did I want this at all
    Do you remember what I said
    The book I left by your bed
    The words that some survivor read

    Lately I've been thinking
    About our daughter growing old
    All of the bullshit that she might be told
    There's blood on the floor
    Maybe not, I believe her for sure
    She remembers what I said
    The book I left by her bed
    The words that some survivor read

    Though they may take you
    For all you had left
    You won't be forgotten
    For what you had not done yet

    So you asked for a kiss from God
    And you moan childless loss
    Innocence gone, but it's not forgot
    You'll cut your way through it somehow

    You remember what I said
    The book you left by your bed
    The words that we all have lived
    The debt Writer/s: George Jephson, Laura Marling
