Marcus Mumford – Only Child Lyrics

Only Child Lyrics – Marcus Mumford

On my shoulder
Is relayed away
Do you always love to smoke by 8?
‘Cause baby don’t mind
It’s never colder
When the daylight breaks
Do you not regret the bed we made?
Does it cross your mind?
Well baby, does it cross your mind?

I did not intend to slow you down, mm
Even though I’d hoped we’d have spoke by now
I was acting like an only child

What takes forever is a lesson learned
I have nothing to show for the medals I’ve earned
And maybe I mind
‘Cause no one’s ever
Seen me traipsing in
I’ve been hiding from all the places I’ve been
And sore from trying
And acting like an only child

But I did not intend to slow you down, mm
Even though I’d hoped we’d have spoke by now
Maybe we were only lying

Heaven’s closing
They’re still pouring drinks
And have all those crazy ways you think
I love you, light
But I can’t reason with the past we face
I’m sorry for the mess we made
And if you want we’ll pick through my mistakes
You’ll see me crying
But maybe we could put it all behind

I did not intend to force your hand, oh
Even though we swore we’d understand
Maybe we’ll be always trying
We’ll be always trying
