"Here Comes Mary" as written by and Sune Rose Wagner....
Here comes Mary
All dressed in black
Her heart so heavy
A love attack
Her dying cigarette in the rain

The gangs are out
And here comes Mary
They rave and shout
Her love to bury
Her dying cigarette in the rain

Go home and cry to your mama tonight
Go home and bury your love tonight

Young love dead
Lost forever
Young love dead
Lost forever
A dying cigarette in the rain

A shiny gun
To her head
Here comes Mary
Forever dead
A wet cigarette in the rain

Went home and cried to her mama tonight
Went home and buried her love tonight
Went home and cried to her mama tonight
Went out and killed herself tonight

    General Commenti'm not so good with symbolism and what not but this song seems to be pretty upfront. i really don't understand the gang part so if someone else could leave a comment on this song it would be real nice to know your opinion. thanks.

    General Commentobviously about a girl involved with the 'wrong' kind of boys... i think about a scenario not too different from "west side story"... she pays for it with her life.

    General CommentThis reminds me of trashy 50's pulp novels. It's one of those kind of stories and the music reflects that I think. My favorite on this album.

    General CommentOut of all of the Ravonettes songs I have (and I'm pretty sure I have every album/EP they've come out with), I think this is their best song. Ever.

    It's so cinematic and dark, yet the harmonies are so sweet. It does remind me a lot of West Side Story, maybe Mary is a reference to "Maria."
