"Have You Seen Mary" as written by and Mark/cross Dombroski....
If you see Mary please will you help her
She seems to be looking for answers
If you see Mary please will you help her
with questions that go unanswered

Like why does she feel all dead on the inside
But as a child she remembers feeling alive
who was that man that made
my mother cry all night
was that my father who was my father

If you see Mary please will you help her
She seems to be looking for answers
If you see Mary please will you help her
with questions that go unanswered

The men that walked into her life
are no different than all the others
that promise the world and then they leave her
She says I should have known better,
I should have known better

Will she always feel so all alone
Why was there never a man in her home
and will I end up like my mother
by myself with no other
with no other

If you see Mary please will you help her
She seems to be looking for answers
If you see Mary please will you help her
with questions that go unanswered

    General CommentThis is my favorite song of the Wax Ecstatic album. Obviously the girl in this song has been through a lot of shit and is going through some rough times. The narrator cares about her and wants to help but can't maybe because of a post-relationship situation. He's just part of the confusion right now. But maybe someone else can help her...

    General CommentI think it is a narrative about a girl who saw her mother mistreated by her father, who then abandoned them both. She grew up without a father figure and has messed up relationships because she doesn't know how to relate to men. She wants someone in her life, but guys just use her. Or maybe I'm just talking about me.

    General CommentThis is a great song. I think the meaning is quite deep. The song is a reminder or a posted request for guys to be very kind to their girlfriends.

    General CommentDefinitely one of the best songs of all time. Possibly my new favorite.

    My take on the song is it is about a girl who is depressed and has relationship problems and really needs a man in her life that will respect her and not run off or use her like the previous ones. It kinda reminds me of the girl Im trying to get with at the moment. The music video is great too.
