In waking they hang,
they shade all they see.
I'll anticipate the end of the story.
'Cause all we really need
is just a safe and secure place
to pack and put the past
where it won't be in the way.

Free enough to leave,
stuck enough to stay.
Be my, be my,
be my one and lonely.
Mary, Mary,
Mary Lee where you going?
Mary, Mary,
Mary Lee where you going?

This is just a ditch that's caving in.
It's so cold it burns,
there's no reflection in the water.
It feels so good it hurts,
I need her too much to want her.

'Cause all we really need
is just a safe and secure place
to pack and put the past
where it won't be in the way.

Free enough to leave.
stuck enough to stay.
Be my, be my,
be my one and lonely.
Mary, Mary,
Mary Lee where you going?
Mary, Mary,
Mary Lee where you going?

Well you put that rope around your neck.
You stood on a stool in one last attempt.
And they found you there
in your favorite dress,
a dull pencil set next to the note you left
that read, it said:

So long everyone. Love is a setting sun.
So long everyone. Love is a setting sun.
So long everyone. Love is a setting sun.
So long, so long, so long.
So long everyone. Love is a setting sun.
So long everyone. Love is a setting sun.
