Now Mary
can't you find a way
to bring me down?

I'm so sorry
that I had to go
and let you down

Knowing you I'll think
things are gonna be fine
but then again you'll
probably change your mind

I'm sorry mary but
being your mate
means trying to find something
that you aren't going to hate

What a season
to be beautiful
without a reason

    General CommentThis song does have a lovely feeling to it, but it's quite a shame that the lyrics are so unhappy.

    General CommentI wouldn't want to be with Mary either if being with her is a constant search for something that she wouldn't hate. She sound slike kind of a bitch.

    General CommentShe sure is (some kind of bitch). I should know, I married her lol. Another great song from this duo. Like e = mc2, genius shows in simplicity.

    General CommentThis song is so good, such a powerful message in under 2 min.

    yea, marktb, i was about to be with a girl like this too. Then I popped in White Blood Cells one day, and once I got to this track, I rethought the whole scenario.

    "I'm sorry mary, but being you mate,
    means trying to find something that you aren't going to hate"

    wow, so good, so concise...i learned to play this on guitar, and one day soon am hoping to play it for her hahaha
