The not-so-delicate folk princess delves into darker territory
In fairytales there are demons whose innate darkness contrasts with the hero’s innocent, wide-eyed exterior. In real life, though, these dualities exist in the same being: the hero finds bits of the demon in himself. Happy endings are obligatory in the storybooks; you’re lucky if you get redemption in the mundane world. Laura Marling ’s third album sees her tackling the good and bad...

God's work is plans
I stand here with a man that talked to me so candidly
More than you need to.
I was just a card, caught up in the stars,
Looking down to Mars.
You know, you know
I know, I know something
I choose to stay far away from the ones
Who think money is money to share
Don't ask me why and I'll tell you no lies
Sonny don't come here no more
I am from Salinas
Where the women go forever
And they never ever stop to ask why.
Where did our love go, you will never know
How did you get home, you will never know
Did you catch yourself in the mirror?
It's a sight I understand
Darling I loved you, I longed to become you
And know what it is that you gave
We danced to sorrow, forgive me tomorrow I pray
Night after night, day after day
My friends, my dear friends,
And lovers, oh my lovers,
I leave you for them.
Got a hand on my back.
There lies a man of my heart
A fine and complete work of art
Here, I his woman, his home and his heart
And proud to be playing that part
Oh I have been wondering where I have been pondering
Where I've been lately is no concern of yours
Who's been touching my skin
Who have I been letting
Stole my children, left my son
Of all of them, he's the only one who did not mean that much to me
I tip my cap to the raging sea
