New Romantic - Laura Marling Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I know I said I love you, but I'm thinking I was wrong
I'm the first to admit that I'm still pretty young
And I never meant to hurt you when I wrote you ten love songs

That guy that I could never get
His girlfriend was pretty fit
And everyone who knew her loved her so

And I made you leave her for me
And now I'm feeling pretty mean
But my mind has fucked me over more times than any man could ever know

[Pre-Chorus]

Maybe I should give up giving
Give up trying to be thin
Give up and turn into my mother
God knows I love her

[Chorus]

And I'm sorry to whichever man
Should meet my sorry state
Watch my sturdy, lonesome gait
And beware

I will never love a man
Cause love and pain go hand in hand
And I can't do it again

[Verse 2]

So we stayed up late one night
To try and get our problems right
But I couldn't get into his head just what was going through my mind

Thinking he knew where I was going
He put Ryan Adams on
I think he thinks it makes me weaker, but it only ever makes me strong

I've got this friend who sounds just like him
And he's the man I leave you for
The man that I just adore like you

The same man, he turns to me
He said "I've got to tell you how I feel
If God could make the perfect girl, for me it would be you"

And my God told me not to tell
About how much do you love your fella
I don't know more everyday
Not in this new romantic way

[Pre-Chorus]

I'll always be your first love
You'll always be my first love

[Chorus]

But I'm sorry to whichever man
Should meet my sorry state
Watch my sturdy, lonesome gait
And beware

I will never love a man
Cause love and pain go hand in hand
And I can't do it again

I will never love a man
Cause I could never hurt a man
Not in this new romantic way
