"How Can I?" as written by and Laura Beatrice Marling....
We’ve been riding up mountains
Turning corners in our lives
We would have taken any buses
Headed for Telluride
We stopped in the desert
In the middle of the night
And looked to the stars on the old roadside
You look at me and said
Look at the moon,
Take it in, it'll be gone soon

I'm taking more risks now,
I'm stepping out of line.
I put up my fists now,
Until I get what's mine.
Should have been you,
Could have been anyone.
You see I never missed my chance to run
I would go anywhere with you
I would go when you ask me to
How will I live without you?
How will I live?

I wrote you a letter
Posted out Central L.A.
Now if you ever come through here
Won't you come take me away?

Could have been you
But it would've been anyone
You see I've missed my chance to run
I would go anywhere with you
I would go when you ask me to
How can I live without you?
How can I live?
How can I live without you?
How can I live?

I'm going back east where I belong
Where I belong
I'm going back east where I belong
Where I belong

But how will I live without you?
How can I live?
How can I live without you?
How can I live?

    General CommentSounds like a woman who always thought she was better alone until she met somebody who she fell for and lost possibly by pushing them away.
    she's realised now the mistake she made and wants that person back but has lost touch with them or the other person refuses to speak to them
