"Marliese" as written by and John Malcolm Watts....
I told them I take photos for this magazine
They let me in to see you comb your hair
I watched for signs as I came through that door
The anxious eyes that I've been waiting for
It's no use hoping I'm a dream

Oh Marliese
The waiting almost dragged me to my knees
Oh Marliese
You never really thought that I'd leave you in peace?

There's no use crying out 'cause they can't help you now
You're forced to hear the words I have to say
I saw your face when I was taken down
You seemed so pleased, you're not so happy now
It's your turn to be afraid

Oh Marliese
The waiting almost brought me to my knees
Oh Marliese
You didn't really think that I'd leave you in peace?

Oh Marliese
Marliese
Marliese

Oh Marliese
The waiting almost dragged me to my knees
Oh Marliese
You never really thought that I'd leave you in peace?

So where's the smooth composure of the movie star?
You must have played this many times before
Do I see tears? Well surely that's not true
Don't kid yourself, it's not worth hurting you
But remember when you try to sleep

Oh Marliese
The waiting nearly brought me to my knees
Oh Marliese
You never really thought that I'd leave you in peace?

Oh Marliese
The waiting almost brought me to my knees
Oh Marliese
You never really thought that I'd ever leave you in peace?

    General Comment2nd song of the album Red Skies Over Paradise and the hit song. Played everywhere at that time.

    For me it was a fantasy of revenge song, when my girlfriend left me.
    Favourite lines.
    "Do I see tears? Well surely that`s not true
    Don`t kid yourself, it`s not worth hurting you
    But remember when you try to sleep"


    Today it sounds like a song about a stalker.
