Title: Mary.

Nobody told me about Mary

I heard it by accident.

It all seemed so unnecessary

I couldn't figure out what it meant.

They said she was gone, permanently

And no-one expected her home.

Nobody told me about Mary

And I wish I'd have known.

Nobody told me about Mary

And I wish I'd have known.


Sweet seventeen and a dreamer

Astounded by all that she saw.

Fantasy figures came nearer

She reached out to embrace them all.

So much to give but too sensitive

To live surrounded by stone.

Nobody told me about Mary

And I wish I'd have known.

Nobody told me about Mary

And I wish I'd have known.



Mary's gone out to the country

Some people say to the farm.

A place where it's peaceful and sunny

Far from all danger and harm.

Slowly it seems, they're curing her dreams

But I wish they'd leave her alone.

Nobody told me about Mary

And I wish I'd have known.

Novbody told me about Mary

And I wish I'd have known.
