  • You should be gone beast
    Be gone from me
    Be gone from my mind at least
    Let a little lady be
    I don't want you to want me
    Wouldn't want you to know
    I don't care where you've gone beast
    I care where you go

    Take the night off
    And be bad for me
    Take it right off
    And be bad for me

    You're a night bird
    Early riser
    You have a kind of wing
    To take her and surprise her
    I didn't understand where you had gone
    Didn't know you'd be right back
    I didn't hear the night song
    Calling for you into the black

    Take the night off
    And be bad for me

    Didn't ask you to save me
    Not when you knew me well
    Wouldn't ask you even to behave for me
    I know there's no help in hell

    Take the night off
    And be bad for me
    Take it right off
    And be bad for me Writer/s: LAURA BEATRICE MARLING
