Mary (1990)

If Id only known you long before the time
we started on our journey in lives weve now defined
if all of our tomorrows were placed in yesterday
Oh Mary, what would I say

We could have been a melody instead of just a rhyme
but our rhythms were so different, un-syncopated time
Youre music that Ive waited for but have not come to play
Oh Mary, would could I say

The calling of tomorrow is tugging at my sleeve
and though I am reluctant, you know I have to leave
the world we knew as children, the world of might-have-been
and you know, Im on the road again.

If Id only known you long before the time
we started on our journey in lives weve now defined
if all of our tomorrows were placed in yesterday
Oh Mary, what would I say
