Mary-Jo, don't you know
you've got to learn to be alone
and though the pavement's beckoning
now come away from that window
and as the water touches chin
I let a little sunlight in
yeah as the waves are crashing in
I find a light to guide you in

so bring your armies against me, my love
infiltrate me with your spies
and implicate me in your lies
the world's not out to get you, my love
I know it feels that way sometimes
and you don't need an army by your side
fill your head with guns and bombs
don't take too long, take too long

Mary-Jo, don't you know
I read the note on your pillow
was it signed in lipstick or signed in blood?
I guess now I'll never know
correct me now, if I'm wrong
it seems bleeding hearts don't last that long
and our last words still echo on
and honey now that you're gone...

so bring your armies against me, my love
infiltrate me with your spies
and implicate me in your lies
the world's not out to get you, my love
I know it feels that way sometimes
and you don't need an army by your side
fill your head with guns and bombs
don't take too long, take too long

Oh, just one last thing before I go
I never meant to hurt you so
Breathing alone, you too I went out(?)
For eternal yesterday
just one last thing before I go
I never meant to hurt you so
i said it once
I'll say it once again

so bring your armies against me, my love
infiltrate me with your spies
and implicate me in your lies
the world's not out to get you, my love
I know it feels that way sometimes
and you don't need an army by your side
fill your head with guns and bombs
don't take too long, take too long

fill your head with guns and bombs
don't take too long, take too long
