"Ballad of Mary"
Far Too Jones
Album: Shame and Her Sister

Hey Mary, are you still waiting?
Has your "thunder road" come along and gone
And left you praying?
Your so called friends and the stories they tell
Don't really seem to fit you all that well
And anyway, all I need to believe in now is you

Yeah, we can waste a life just waiting
For a time to live, a time to die
Either way, I know we've gotta start tonight

Chorus #1:
And this small town's got nothing left
For a couple of high school prom rejects
And this old car has got new headlights
And you can sleep, while I drive

Hey Mary, can you still feel it?
All the easy eyes upon you as you walk by
We're all just sinners living through the fall
Yeah, I read it on a subway wall
It said someday that little boy of yours
Is going to change the world, and I believe it's true

Chorus #2:
And this small town has got nothing left
For a couple of high school prom rejects
And this old car has got a new headlight
Hey baby you can sleep, hey, while I drive
So slip a little closer next to me
And tell me everything that angel said
All the world swears you're a liar
You can sleep while I drive

Well, we can waste a life just waiting
For a little time to live, a time to die
Either way, either way it's gotta start tonight

[Chorus #2]

Sleep while I drive
Sleep while I drive, yeah
Maybe I'm a waste of time
Yeah, maybe I'm a waste of time
That's all I want to know
Yeah, maybe I'm a waste of time
That's all I want to know
Baby, I'm a waste of time
I know, I know
