Mary, You're covered in roses, You're covered in ashes
You're covered in rain
You're covered in babies, covered in slashes
You're covered in wilderness, You're covered in stains

You cast aside the sheet, You cast aside the shroud
Of another man who served the world proud
And You greet another Son, You lose another one
On some sunny day and always You'll stay, Mary

Jesus says, Mother, I couldn't stay another day longer
Flies right by me and leaves a kiss upon Her face
While the angels are singin' His praises in a blaze of glory
Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place

Oh Mary, She moves behind me
She leaves her fingerprints everywhere
Every time the snow drifts, every time the sand shifts
Even when the night lifts, She's always there

Jesus says, Mother, I couldn't stay another day longer
Flies right by me and leaves a kiss upon Her face
While the angels are singin' praises in a blaze of glory
Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place

Mary, You're covered in roses, You're covered in ruin
Covered in secrets
You're covered in treetops, You're covered in birds
Who can sing a million songs without any words

You cast aside the sheets, You cast aside the shroud
Of another man who served the world proud
You greet another Son, You lose another one
On some sunny day and always stay
