"Sweet Marie" as written by William Scott Gorham and Philip Parris Lynott....
Sweet Marie, there's a hole where your heart should be
And on the hill she's begging for a harmony
Sweet Marie, there's a hole where your heart should be
And on the hill she's begging for a harmony

What beautiful lies you've been told
What terrible truths drown your soul
She hides behind all my lies

Oh you need to be loved
Oh you need to be loved
Oh you need all my love tonight - all my love

Sweet Marie, how cold your body can be
And on the hill she's begging for a harmony
Such a beautiful kiss in the face of fear
Such a beautiful song burns through your ears
She hides behind all my lies

Oh you need to be loved
Oh you need to be loved
Oh you need all my love tonight - all my love

Oh you need to be loved
Oh you need to be loved
Oh you need to be loved
Oh you need

    General CommentWhen they played this at a concert I saw them at, Christian kept the beat going for about 5 minutes before the song actually started. I think the anticipation made it fifty times better than it already is. Yeah, their style has changed though.
