i wish i could say what words won't amount to
but for now i can't speak your name
send it in a letter
wait for your reply
because you are on my mind


chorus:
i'm sorry, mary but it's over (you took the best out of me)
i'm sorry, mary but it's over (you took the best out of me)
i'm sorry, mary but it's over (you took the best out of me)
i'm sorry, mary


first star i see tonight hangs on my wall
a picture of you that's still there
wouldn't change anything, would you change me if i could
would you want me to be


(chorus)

illusions all but faded sunlight, beams in your hair
trying me


(chorus)

    General Commentits seems like in some relationships one person does all the loving, and the other just lets themself be loved...maybe there is a lack of communication...perhaps the other person is just never satisfied with who you are and your love..or they are verry critical and fault finding, when really love is the best thing anyone can give.....this can just be so emotionally exhausting for the one doing all the loving....the other just taking and taking, after a while there is nothing more you can give, perhaps you blame yourself (eg, would you change me. if i could, would you want me to) and eventually you wake up from the illusion that the one you love is so great and put and end to the self destructive situation....

    General CommentThis song just makes me hurt inside. In the second verse it's almost like he's begging to be with "mary" but he knows its best for both of them that they arent together. So sad!
    The version off the Today & Tommorow EP is even better than the original!

    General CommentOne thing about Matt Wertz is that when I listen to his voice, i really believe him. In this song especially... spectacular job.

    This girl just drained him emotionally, and he's through. Good for you, Matt. Good for you.
