"You're No God" as written by and Laura Beatrice Marling....
Mom thinks that you're sad
And that you're living alone
And your friends think if you're sad
You should call them more

But the truth is that you never needed someone
To comfort you
Oh, you've never needed someone
To comfort you

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 your 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
Until I'm laid into my final resting place
Just like the rest of human race
Who've done it without complaining all the way

You're no god, you're no god

As long as you promise
That you will never leave
I need only worry about you and me

We will never leave this place
We need never feel alone
We will learn to feel quite clean
In this new skin that we have grown
Because our young and healthy bones
Would never lead us astray

We will learn to feel quite clean
In this new skin that we have
We will learn to feel quite clean
In this new skin that we have

We will learn to feel quite clean
In this new skin that we have grown
Because our young and healthy bones
Would never lead us astray

    General Commentto me it's about how people pretend to be very strong and independent but nevertheless feel lonely and miserable inside until they eventually find their companion.

    General Commentthis entire song is fucking amazing!

    "You're no god
    You're no god
    You will never leave this place
    You will always feel alone
    You will never feel quite clean in this new skin that you have grown until your old and broken bones are laid into their resting place,
    just like the rest of human race."

    just like the rest of human race,
    Who've done it without complaining all the way.

    Lyric CorrectionMom thinks that you're sad

    But the truth is that you never needed someone
    To comfort you
    Oh, you've never needed someone
    To comfort you

    You're no god, you're no god

    And you will never leave this place

    And you will never feel quite clean
    In this new skin that you have grown

    General CommentTotally agree, Stain. I also think it may be talking about coming to terms with something before you can fully move on in life. Such as in the lyrics:

    You will never feel quite clean in this new skin that you have grown until your old and broken bones are laid into their resting place,
    just like the rest of human race.

    I absolutely love Laura Marling and believe she needs to be more commonly known to everyone. Her music is so unique and beautiful.

    My InterpretationIt's all in the title of this song.....You're No God = You're not special so shut the hell up and keep on keeping on. We love, we die, we are human. Such a simple beautiful message.
