for you

by elizestrydom


when your work is over

your day is done

put down your hammer

into my world come


life is heavy

when you’re no master’s son

when you’re ready

into my arms come


love’s not easy

not always fun

and words are sleazy

my love is better dumb


should you choose

should you choose to love

anyone anytime soon

then i save these words for you


you weren’t my curse

you weren’t my curse

but thank you, naivety

for failing me again


he was my next verse


Saved These Words – Laura Marling
