about

A stinging self-critique of my insecurities in a relationship.

lyrics

1-2-3... Was I not glad to be so free?
4-5-6... There was nothin' left to fix
7-8 & 9... We're goin' to be just fine
10-20-30... I have never felt so dirty

When I was a boy I could never find the joy
Locked within a toy of aluminum alloy
Where will you be when I count to three
Count on me to lose you when you're so close to me

Oh Mary. What's so scary about you, Mary
Oh Mary. Is that you gave me sanctuary
Oh Mary. Now I'm picking up the pieces and I'm picking up the phone
Cause I never want to be the one who left you all alone

A-B-C... Now I'm getting it for free
D-E-F-G... But I'm down on bended knee
H-I-J... I might would rather pay
K... Now I've said way much more than I should say

See Jack Run? See him run so fast away?
Shot like from a gun because she begged for him to stay
Why oh why do we set our sites so high?
When I look down I am so petrified

Oh Mary. What's so scary about you, Mary
Oh Mary. Is that you gave me sanctuary
Oh Mary. Now I'm picking up the pieces and I'm picking up the phone
Cause I never want to be the one who left you all alone

I know you're the one who's cryin'
But inside it's me who's dyin'
I put us where we are today
And there's nothin' more to say
But there's so much more to say
