Mary Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I woke up and Mary was still gone
Thought if I stopped hurting she would come back to me
Walk right through the door and say, Ah, ha
I was only joking, didn't you look silly crying
But I wake up and Mary is still gone

I looked at the clock and it was still
Lying on the floor exactly where I threw it
Both hands smashed against its silver face
My feeble attempt to stop time but time goes on
I wake up and Mary is still gone

Mary, was it necessary to leave before the party?
I know it's selfish to say
You always brought the cake now
What will I eat with all these tears?

I looked at the list and saw her name
Kick myself, she never got an invitation
Kid myself, I'm sure somehow she knew
My stupid attempt to find, some way to move on
But I wake up and Mary is still gone

Mary is still gone
