Talking To Mary Lyrics

by Elliott Smith

Talking to Mary
You know you don't have to shout
She can hear what you're thinking
Like you were saying it right out loud

It's you she sees
Behind that dirty look
It was her that followed down
Every stupid turn that you took

One day she'll go, I told you so
One day she'll go, I told you so

Saw the one big problem
You keep under your hat
And it's pretty unlikely that
Anybody else would be cool with that

You got bus fare in your pocket
And more money down in your sock
But she can't tell you how to contact her
If you won't listen to her talk

One day she'll go, I told you so
One day she'll go, I told you so

It's no problem
I'll just keep quiet if it's easier for you
To make believe then
That I don't love you as much as I do

One day she'll go, I told you so
One day she'll go, I told you so
I told you so, I told you so
