I felt very lucky to find myself sitting in a candlelit church this week, listening to the amazing Laura Marling play songs off her album Once I Was An Eagle. Having absolutely ZERO musical talent myself, I will never understand how a human being can not only write beautiful, poetic lyrics but set them to music and perform the whole lot in front of an audience. To me, it looks as hard as speaking three different languages simultaneously, with a watching crowd. Oh, and just to make us all feel totally inadequate, Laura Marling is twenty-three years old.
This was one of my favourite songs of the night. Just beautiful.
