Laura Marling - I Was Just A Card Lyrics

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,

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,

  1. fradaja

    i hope beyonce watches this

  2. TheAprilMuse

    Love this song, thank you.

  3. Mazze LeCzzare

    Joni Mitchell had written most of the songs she would perform in her life when she was very young, and had been performing them sometimes for years before she devoted them to albums. There just wan't youtube back then so if you weren't in the circle you had to wait for the album to come out and buy it and listen. It takes nothing away from what this woman, Laura Marling is doing, except I think maybe they are just old souls

  4. redhatgnome

    The next Joni Mitchell. Except that Laura Marling isn't. She's herself.

  5. Luis Angel Hernández Soto

    This would be sound great whit a jazz band

  6. prikiinha

    Is it weird if I think she's already reached their levels? Seriously, I can't see no difference between the things she writes and, v.g, Leonard Cohen's, Joni Mitchell's and James Taylor's songs, regarding the maturity and profundity of the lyrics.
    I still get impressed when I remember that she wrote Alpha Shallows, Blackberry Stone, I Speak Because I Can and others when she was 18, 19 years old. She's amazing and very special, really!

    @sherri14309 Thank You for realising this about her, appreciating her and really taking her in. You have it 100% correct. I'm 27 who loves older artists like james taylor and tom paxton, and she really has such talent and potential to reach their levels. I hope all is good by you Sherri!
