Give me mercy and a minute now I'm a bleed a little poison out I'm a cry a little river down And then I'm setting this whole thing on fire And I'm burning up the night she died And I'm putting every last picture aside I'm gonna say what I need to say In my very last letter to you 'Cause you always made it clear Said that you'd never be my pain So here's to you and your bright baby blues And just a pause to cool the refrain And you said you were satisfied And now this body's just waiting to die And that you missed him sometimes but you said it's alright It's just a whole lot harder alone But I wish you knew her now She's a better side of me now And I'm doing the best I can It's what you wanted And I see you like you were there And I know just how you'd smile Mary, you looked just like it was 1930 that night But here the days will eat you alive But I won't give in tonight You said it's not worth my time And not to regard them And not to settle just for piece of mind But I can wait it out all night If you'll just keep breathing But Mary I found a sound And this heart keeps pouring it out And the glory hasn't come and it's probably gonna fade Like a tattoo that hides the shame And the reasons always fade And the pain gets out some day So I'm saying my goodbyes to your deep blue eyes 'Cause I don't know how to say, "Stay still in the pain. Stay still in the pain." But I wish you knew her now She's a better side of me now And I'm doing the best I can It's what you wanted And I see you like you were there And I know just how you'd smile Mary, you looked just like it was 1930 that night If I recall the last thing you said to me Before it broke up, before it took you from me And you said, "I love you more than the stars in the sky But your name just escapes me tonight."
