But you’re no god. 
You’re no god.

And you will never leave this place, 
And you will always feel alone, 
And you will never feel quite clean 
In this new skin that you have grown 
Until you old and broken bones 
Are laid into their resting place 
Just like the rest of human race. 

Til I fall into my place, 
Just like the rest of human race. 
Til I’m laid into my final resting place, 
Just like the rest of human race who’ve done it. 
Without complaining all the way. 

Song of the day – I’d forgotten just how beautiful Laura Marling’s lyrics could be,. I’m currently re-listening to “Alas I Cannot Swim” at work, and these lyrics always put me neatly back in my place.
