You could never compromise
I could never satisfy you at all
Always thought you had gentle eyes
Then you've had me institutionalized
(Twice before)

Before I was a young man
Now look at me, I'm just younger than old
The years don't seem to touch you
It makes me wonder what you sold

Oh, my Maria
I'll never change you, I know, I know
I need to see you
That never changes, oh no

You lived on the 7th floor
It was far from heaven but it meant more
You said things that were hard to ignore
My conversation makes you bored

You always hated wedding bells
You'd go out riding with the Hell's and say
Life is for the taking
Life is for the taking

Oh, my Maria
I'll never change you, I know, I know
I need to see you
That never changes, oh no

So how's it gonna be, Maria?
Will it be you and me?
Or will it be
Five more years of counting my tears
Five more years of living in fear

I beg for my supper at night
If this is love then it don't feel right
And my heart's burning out of control
They gave her five but she's out on parole

Hey, hey, hey
This girl is leading me astray

Saw a photograph of you today
Your eyes look tired but you haven't aged
And now I see that you made the front page
Married for the money and you blew him away

Oh Maria, when you were doing time
You only had five words on your mind
Life is for the taking
Life is for the taking

Oh, my Maria
I'll never change you, I know, I know
I need to see you
That never changes, oh no

Oh, my Maria
I'll never change you, I know, I know
I need to see you
That never changes, oh no

I beg for my supper at night
If this is love then it don't feel right
And my heart's burning out of control
They gave her five but she's out on parole

Hey, hey, hey
This girl is leading me astray
Listen, what I say
This girl is leading me astray
