Oh, the cold wet wind blew over the heather
You wrote Charlie and Mary for forever
On the back of a rock that you picked up on the way

And in that perfect moment I nearly ruined it
By saying I love you and nearly meaning it
But you know I would never waste those words

Oh, when I last saw Mary
She lied and said it was her birthday
Oh, when I last saw Mary
She lied and said it was her birthday

But then she tried to kiss me and I said don't bother
You know we don't really love one another
And there is no use burning out this flame

Oh, but then things changed in a way I couldn't predict
She said I love you and it suddenly clicked
That she was only saying what she wanted me to hear

And I said please don't lie to me, Mary
And I said please don't lie to me, Mary

Oh, I said please don't lie
Oh, it makes me cry in bed
Oh, I said please don't lie
Oh, it makes me cry in bed
Oh, I said please don't lie
Oh, it makes me cry in bed

But she said shut your mouth
You don't know what you're talking about
Oh, she said shut your mouth
You don't know what you're talking about
