Chris Rea – Marvin lyrics

Oh Marvin,
Seems so long
But I still remember you
I would have given everything
If I could have talked to you
For just one small moment
In the quiet of the day
You took my pain away

Oh Marvin
The one who wanted,
The one that could not stay
With a flash of illusion
Oh the big one that got away
Just one small moment
In the quiet of the day
You took my pain away

Oh Marvin
Oh Marvin

Oh how we miss you
Oh how we wish somehow
I could hold onto your wings
And fly away
Because the pain you knew
Was the pain I knew too
Misunderstood like the
Thorn of a rose
Before the summer came,
Your beauty washed away
Like pretty petals in the wind and rain
