(traffic sounds)

I saw Mary
and he led her with a gun standing there
I saw Mary
with her golden fingers in his hair
She's standing under a street light
She doesn't know what she's done

I saw Mary
and she was his dream for a day
I saw Mary
and she never knew she could run this way
Now she's waiting under a street light
The waiting has only begun

What does she think when she's walking home?
The children have got to be fed
What will she do if it follows her home?
Her other soul is dead.
Does she remember when she's walking home
with whirring birds overhead
Does she run? When will she scream?
What will she do if a gun...
and the bullet's in her head

Walk tall
Walk strong
The trip will go on and on
Life's gone
Love's gone
The watchman knows right along

Walk tall
Walk strong
The trip will go on and on
Life's gone
Love's gone
Mary knows what is wrong

I saw Mary
crumpled under the pier
I saw faces
black and blue for a year
Now she's standing under a street light
And she doesn't know what she's done

What does she think when she's walking home?
The children have got to be fed
What will she do if it follows her home?
Her other soul is dead. dead. dead. dead.
Does she remember when she's walking home
With whirring birds overhead.
Will she run? Will she bleed?
What will she do with the gun?
And the bullet's in her head.
