"I Was Just A Card" as written by and Laura Beatrice Marling....
I was just a card, caught up in the stars,
Looking down to Mars.
You know, you know
I know, I know something
About you that you don't want me to know.

Never found a solid hand till I found that man,
Till I found that man of mine.
You were looking at me, thinking,
"Who am I?"

Never knew the sky was white till I took that flight,
Till I took that flight to him,
Tonight.

I was just a card, caught up in the stars,
Looking down to Mars.
You know, you know
He knows, he knows something
About me that I don't want him to know.

Could've sworn I had that man when he took my hand,
When he took my hand down near you.
You were looking at me, thinking,
"Who is she?"

Didn't even see the night till I said goodbye,
Till I said goodbye to him,
Tonight.

    Lyric CorrectionI was just a card, caught up in the stars,
    Looking down to Mars.
    You know, you know
    I know, I know something
    About you that you don't want me to know.

    Never found a solid hand till I found that man,
    Till I found that man of mine.
    You were looking at me, thinking,
    "Who is she?"

    Never knew the sky was white till I took that flight,
    Till I took that flight to him,
    Tonight.

    I was just a card, caught up in the stars,
    Looking down from Mars.
    You know, you know
    He knows, he knows something
    About mr that I don't want him to know.

    Could've sworn I had that man when he took my hand,
    When he took my hand down near you.
    You were looking at me, thinking,
    "Who is she?"

    Didn't even see the night till I said goodbye,
    Till I said goodbye to him,
    Tonight.

    My InterpretationI wonder if this is about a one night stand...

    "Could've sworn I had that man when he took my hand,
    When he took my hand down near you.
    You were looking at me, thinking,
    "Who is she?"

    General CommentThe cards could be tarot or something like that (aren't those covered in symbols like planets and stars?), so it's like until you get to know someone, to them you are just a card in their hand, one they might play or discard. And tarot is fortune telling, so you don't know how it's gonna turn out. But he's got another "card" in his hand too, another woman he might play and get to know instead, and she's thinking about you (Laura) "Who is she?" And of course, this guy is a card in the hand of both Laura AND the otehr girl. it's about how we all circle each other.
