"Mary" as written by and Sarah....
She's looking out and out to a galaxy
A fateful boat trip across a Northern Sea
On a frosty window she writes her name
Oh daughter, this is how she became

Mary, go ahead and have your little baby
Mary, toughest of the tough but still a lady

Oh I've all the courage I'll ever need
I wax poetic on my enemies
The century is raging, but so are we
No matter what I know we've got a symphony called

Mary, go ahead and have your little baby
Mary, toughest of the tough but still a lady

Out of dark days, stay up airplane
Take my last name, stay up airplane

Go ahead and have your little baby
Mary, toughest of the tough but still a lady
Mary, toughest of the tough

    General CommentHer voice just soars on this tune. The high note she hits when singing 'Mary' in the chorus gives me chills.
