Left me a poor and lonely wife
I cooked the meals and he got the life
And now I'm just old for the rest of my

I swear it was not my choice

When you're shaking out the anger that stops you from taking my call
When you're running up the highway singing I'm the king, the king of you all
when you look back to where it started, I'll be there waving you on

Verse (same as verse 1 chords):

Never rode my bike down to the sea
Never quite figured out what I believe
Never got up and said anything
Worthy, for he, for my

Laura Beatrice Marling (born 1 February 1990), is a folk-pop singer-songwriter from Reading, Berkshire, England.

Marling has toured with a number of well-known indie artists in the UK including Jamie T, who personally invited her on tour with him last year after he attended her second-ever gig.

She performed at the 2007 O2 Wireless Festival and also performed at the first Underage Music Festival in August 2007 at Victoria Park, East London.

Her debut single came out on WayOutWest Records, with a new single coming out soon on Virgin Records. She appeared on The Rakes track "Suspicious Eyes", from the band's second album Ten New Messages and Mystery Jets track "Young Love" released 10 March, 2008.[1] from their second album. She often collaborates with indie band Noah and the Whale, and Charlie Fink, lead singer of Noah and the Whale, produced her debut album Alas, I Cannot Swim.[2]

She is currently the supporting artist at the Adam Green concerts in Europe and in New York.[1][2]
