Maria Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

There's a salt grain tapping on your window
There's a cool breeze blowing off the bay
And a warm flame dancing with our shadows
To music playin' far away

I never meant to stay an hour
I thought that I was passin' through
Another town along the highway
I never meant to fall for you

Well, I can't speak for you, Maria
I only know the way I feel
When I sleep with you, Maria
There's nothin' left for dreams to steal

On a Bible by the mirror
The only treasures that we hold
The only secrets that we're keepin'
A watch, a chain, a cross of gold

Well, I can't speak for you, Maria
I only know the way I feel
When I sleep with you, Maria
There's nothin' left for dreams to steal

When the sunlight brings the mornin'
I cannot tell you what I'll do
But I've a mind to take you with me
And I've a heart to stay with you

I can't speak for you, Maria
I only know the way I feel
When I sleep with you, Maria
There's nothin' left for dreams to steal

When I sleep with you, Maria
There's nothin' left for dreams to steal
