New Romantic

Laura Marling


I know I said I loved you but I'm thinking I was wrong
I'm the first to admit that I'm still pretty young
And I never meant to hurt you when I wrote you ten love songs

That guy that I could never get, oh his girlfriend was pretty fit
And everyone who knew her loved her so
And I made you leave her for me and now I'm feeling pretty mean
But my mind has fucked me over more times than any man could ever know

Maybe I should give up, give in
Give up trying to be thin
Give up and turn into my mother
God knows I love her

And I'm sorry to whichever man should meet my sorry state
Watch my sturdy, lonesome gait and be aware
I will never love a man cause love and pain go hand in hand
And I can't do it again

So we stayed up late one night to try and get our problems right
But I couldn't get into his head just what was going through my mind
I think he knew where I was going, he put Ryan Adams on
I think he thinks it makes me weak but it only ever makes me strong.

I've got this friend and he sounds just like him
And he's the man I'd leave you for, the man that I just adore like you
The same man, he turns to me, he said: "I've got to tell you how I feel
If God could make a perfect girl for me it would be you
And my God told me not tell her but how much do you love your
fella?"
I don't know more everyday
Not in this new romantic way

I'll always be your first love
You'll always be my first love

But I'm sorry to whichever man should meet my sorry state
Watch my sturdy, lonesome gait and beware
I will never love a man cause love and pain go hand in hand
And I can't do it again
I will never love a man cause I could never hurt a man
Not in this new romantic way
