Along Came Mary Lyrics

Was alone then along came Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
Was amazed when she stole my thunder
Filled my world with the ways of wonder

Come away, come away with me
Far away where the eyes can't see
Come away to another time
Pardon me if you lose your mind

Who are you now? Who makes the rules?
Follow your heart and get back
Won't you get back
Oh, get back

Was alone then along came Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
Was amazed when she stole my thunder
Filled my world with the ways of wonder

Come away, come away with me
Far away where the eyes can't see
Come away to another time
Pardon me if you lose your mind
Pardon me if you lose your mind
Pardon me if you lose, oh, if you lose your mind

‘Along Came Mary’ is a cute song about how someone descriptively describes a person who caught their eyes. Someone they love or find great amount of interest in, like these verses ‘Hair of gold and lips like cherries….’ ‘Was amazed when she stole my thunder’ ‘Filled my world with ways of wonder…’ \n The person is talking to their love interest in which they want them to follow them into their journey of life, far beyond their imagination, away from reality. ‘Come away, come away with me’ ‘Far away where the eyes can’t see’ ‘Come away to another time….’ Then this line verse ‘Pardon me if you lose your mind…’ He’s just saying that, forgive me if time passes and we get caught up in our lives.\n“Who are you now?’ ‘ Who makes the rules?’ ‘Follow your heart and get back…’ He’s talking about life here, reality. Who are we to live in this world filled with rules, just follow what your heart desires more and come back.

I love this song by Roger from his 2000 album "Open the Door".

I know a young lady who is 14 (I'm 12) and her name is Terra. She has helped me see a lot of things, she's a beautiful lady, nice, kind and funny, and I am also a musician, so, I dedicate this song to her whenever I play it on my Yamaha FG-720S 12-string guitar.

In addition to the love sense, the song is a reference to LSD:

"Come away, come away with me Far away where the eyes can't see Come away to another time Pardon me if you lose your mind"

The verse "Pardon me if you lose your mind" is alluding to a bad trip, as happened in the case of Syd Barret.
