Give me mercy and a minute now
Ima bleed a little poison out
Ima cry a little river down,
And then Im setting this whole thing on fire
And I'm burning up the night she died
I'm putting every last picture aside,
I'm gonna say what I need to say
In my very last letter to you
'Cause you always made it clear,
said youd never be my pain
So heres to you and your bright baby blues,
And just a pause to cool the refrain
And you said were satisfied,
that this body just weighted the tide.
And that you missed him sometimes,
but you said it's all right,
it's just a whole lot harder alone.

But I wish you knew her now.
Shes the better side of me now.
And I'm doing the best I can.
That's what you'da wanted.
And I see like you were there.
I know just how you'd smile.
Mary, you looked just like,
it was 1930 that night.

But here the days will eat you alive,
but I wont give in tonight.
You said its not worth my time,
and not to regard them.
And not to settle just for piece of mind,
I could wait it out all night,
If I just keep breathing
[sigh]
But Mary, I found the sound,
and if this heart keeps pouring it out,
And the glory hasn't come,
And it's probably gonna fade,
like a tattoo that hides this shame.
But reasons always fade.
And the pain gives out some day.
So Im saying my goodbyes to your deep blue eyes,
'cause I dont know how say
"Stay still in the pain.
Stay still in the pain."

But I wish you knew her now.
Shes the better side of me now.
And Im doing the best I can.
That's what you'da wanted.
And I see like you were there.
I know just how you'd smile.
Mary, you looked just like,
it was 1930 that night.

And if I recall the last thing you said to me,
before it broke up.
Before it took you from me.
You said "I love you more than the stars in the sky,
but your name just escapes me tonight."
(Nobody does it like you anymore.
Nobody does it like you)
