"Mary is an angel"
Says a five year old's wide eyes
"You are the oldest person I've ever seen"
Mary sighs

"These are the wings
I made you so you can fly
When you get to heaven
Tell my grandmother I said 'Hi'"

She's on the fifth floor balcony
She sees heaven closer than us
She knows that God is watching
She knows that she can always trust
Her paper wings and halo

Mary is a full care resident on her last days
They feed her pills and oatmeal
She's set in her ways
Mary was born in England in 1904
She married young and had five children
And all but one died before her

She's on the fifth floor balcony
She sees heaven closer than us
She knows that God is watching
She knows that she can always trust
Her paper wings and halo

Mary is tired of waiting
She is almost there
Mary knows she could fly
She could fly
If she could get out
Of that damn chair

Mary talks about her children
When they were young
"You remind me of my grandchild
Loving life and having fun"

Mary's time is coming
And she's not afraid
Mary is a good woman
And she loved the life that she made
That she made

She's on the fifth floor balcony
She knows heaven awaits her now
She knows that God is calling
And when it's time to fly
She'll know how
With her paper wings and halo

"Mary is an angel"
Says a five year old's wide eyes
"You are the oldest person I've ever seen"
Mary smiles

"These are the wings
I made you so you can fly
When you get to heaven
Tell my mother I said 'Hi'"
