"Crazy Mary" as written by and Smith/walker....
Crazy Mary's a slow girl who looks up to no one
Would do anything for a cold one
Wishes she could find her way home

Got the look on her face
And her stare's like a ray gun
As we walked by everything and
I wished there's something I could do for her

May be If I
Took a little time to talk
Then she'd heal a little if she wants to
She can run but let's teach her
How to walk away now
I'll shake a little if she wants to
Laugh a little if she needs to
There's a key to the door that she's hiding behind

She watches the world pass her by like a freight train
And they all call her the same names
Laughing as they point and stare at her

So she cries out to god up in heaven
Been praying since she was eleven
For him to send someone to meet her there

May be If I
Took a little time to talk
Then she'd heal a little if she wants to
She can run but let's teach her
How to walk away now
I'll shake a little if she wants to she'll
Laugh a little if she needs to
There's a key to the door that she's hiding behind

And no one knows the thoughts and the dreams and ideas
That she's got and contains inside
She's so broken apart
And her hearts is still looking for somewhere to feel alright

And no one knows the thoughts and the dreams and ideas
That she's got and contains inside
She's so broken apart
And her hearts is still looking for somewhere to feel alright
May be If I
Took a little time to talk
Then she'd heal a little if she wants to
She can run but let's teach her
How to walk away now
I'll shake a little if she wants to she'll
Laugh a little if she needs to
There's a key to the door that she's hiding behind

    My InterpretationI don't think this really means that everyone hates her... more like, she has all these people around her and she's alone. People who aren't like her are the ones who make fun of her, when all she needs is someone to listen. When I hear this, I think of the "party girl" who's always drunk and lost, but she wants something more. No one really knows how she feels cause she hides it so well. And Trevor in this case is talking about being her friend, and/ or maybe even being a witness to her. Get her to walk away from the bad stuff and loneliness, to where she can laugh and be happy in Christ. He wants her to be out of her misery and be happy like he is.

    General CommentThis song has great lyrics and is really good musically, too. It urges you to go out there and show kindness to someone who's an outcast.

    General CommentA guy that means a lot to me mentioned this song, cause he calls me Mary.

    Maybe it's who told me about it, but I love it.

    I think it's about a guy who realizes how much "Crazy Mary" needs someone to help her, and he comes to realize that he wants to be that someone.

    General Commenti think that this song is really sad. Mary has no friends, and no one to help her, I like it though, it does make u srry for the people who don't have any friends. They shoudl get a music video for this song
