Travel Light

When I was an Astronaut, i didn't have my boot's,
when i was a coal miner, i didn't know the news,
when i owned a record store, i didn't have the blues,
i travel light and that's the life for me.

He doesn't care where else he goes,
he's not gonna take any extra clothes,
or extra shoes to hide his feet,
the ground is dirt, the dirt is sweet.

When i go to London town, ill stand under a rock,
till i know all the time it takes to pack a clock,
then ill flip it over, close the key, swallow the lock,
i travel light and that's the life for me.

He doesn't take his spoon or fork,
he's seen too many eating in new york,
he'll use his hands to pick and eat,
the fruit he finds, he'll find it sweet.

When i was a waitress i gave away my tips,
when i was a call girl i gave away my hips,
when i ran a kissing booth i gave away my lips,
i travel light and that's the life for me.

She lives her life like abandoned wind,
elemental wife, fortune is her friend,
smile on a planet and a river made of light,
she's just a pebble on a waterfall tonight.

When i go to Boston, i stand around in jeans,
and save the cash for Levi's selling black market baked beans,
denim's what i liked to wear, it has durable seems,
i travel light and that's the life for me.

She's just a genius without a thinking cap,
never pays the rent, she's funny like that,
i don't know what she's on, she's here and gone,
rides a welcome mat on a jungle cat.

Fur's and silver chairs and shiny things are just a fuss,
we'll eat all the peanuts that we steal from the circus,
we'll count all the stars and go to sleep under a bus,
we'll travel light and that's the life for us.

we'll travel light and that's the life for us X3

About the artist behind Travel Light:

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 recently appeared on Later with Jools Holland where she performed the song "New Romantic". Marling's debut album Alas, I Cannot Swim was released on February 4, 2008.

Despite playing sold-out venues over the past few months, Laura has spoken of how she still finds larger venues scary.[3]

Marling was once refused access to one of her own performances, for being underage. She instead chose to perform on the street.[4]

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