Dearest Mary why couldn't you be true?
You always told me of all the pain inside of you,
All those emotional wounds that never healed
Yes I'll admit that I prayed and that I kneeled,
Praying for you Mary so your fate would not be sealed
Stubborn as you always were you would not yield,
Oh Mary Mary some things cannot be concealed
I did everything but serve you grapes that I'd peeled,
Pushing everyone away who tried to please you
Dark clouds you summoned in a sky that should've been blue,
Throwing precious love away oh Mary how could you?
Misery instead of harmony how sadly true,
Mary oh Mary you left me but I understand
It's just that your life never worked out as you planned,
Now everything for you is better without me around
A price I had to pay the only truth that I found,
Those rare times like a child you laughed
Remember when we were on the White Water raft?
They say time heals everything time heals everything.
Remembering when I used to sing remembering when I used to sing,
