Mary


Woke up today

Another dirty morning

Woke up today

Job in the city is calling
 

Throws her legs out of bed and

Slowly walks across the floor she

Puts her face on in the mirror

Rising sun creeping up behind her

Pulls her hair up high

Looks at the lines on her face

They're growing wider

And she starts to cry and
 

Hey

Hey Mary

Hey

Hey Mary
 

Tries to remember summer

As her bus rolls into town

It leaves her like a lonesome lover

Alone in the bustle of this town

And this nine to five

This life

It leaves little time for feeling

You got less for dreaming

When the walls of her life are closing in

Feels like she’s waging a war she’ll never win

The thought of another day fills her with dread

As she cries at night

All alone in bed and
 

Hey

Hey Mary

Hey

Hey Mary
 

She believes in life

She believes in death

She believes in believing

‘Cause she believes in the words I said

When the night it’s coming down

The shadows reach for you

I’ll be there to turn to

When the whole world has been untrue
 

Sometimes she thinks of leaving

Getting washed away in the rain

Maybe go and jump that train and

Maybe go and catch that plain and

Gonna get the hell out of here

Going to put some space between

This life

This life she fell into
 

Mary walks the city streets

Tramples pavement beneath her feet

The tall steel buildings cut the sky

And the city cries

Cries for all the people trapped below

Living their lives in the, the to and fro

And everyone looking for that one thing

The way out
 

She believes in life

She believes in death

She believes in believing

‘Cause she believes in the words I said

When the night it’s coming down

The shadows reach for you

I’ll be there to turn to

When the whole world has been untrue
