Lyrics

she hangs pictures on the wall, upside down and sideways

she picks dandelions and cries, as she blows away the grey ones

she wears wool sweaters in the summer sun, tends her garden

she got a thorn stuck in her heart, she wraps the past in roses

never see a light in her window

but i can see a soul in her eyes

it falls away one teardrop at a time

 

where did it begin, old mary?

and where does it end, old mary?

so painfully thin

did you ever fit in?

did you get lost?

somewhere between now and then

i got pressure in my head, too many questions

dishes and excuses piling up, too many late nights

i get sick of staring at the wall, seeing faces

another sundown all alone, open up the curtains

does she see the light in my window

can she see the tears in my eyes

i'm getting old one sundown at a time

where did it begin...

and I wonder would it be the same

if you could start again

where did it begin, old mary?

and where does it end, old mary?

impossibly thin, did you ever fit in?

did you get lost?
