i was just a card lyrics – laura marling

“i was just a card”

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,
tonight.

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?”

i didn’t even see the night till i said goodbye,
till i said goodbye to him,
tonight.
