Mary and her man live in a two-bedroom beside me.
Used to see her in the hall
And I'd her on the street
But lately she ain't comin' around no more
She hides indoors
Afraid of what the world might say if they knew,
What I know.

Mary, can you come outside?
Take a walk with me in the sunshine?
Maybe then you could tell me why,
All in all you seem to have it all
So why do you cry?
I hear you through the walls at night,
Mary, can you come outside?

It's 2 am and the battle starts again,
I pray for your innocence in a war you'll never win.
Should I just sit here on these hands of mine
One more time?
Or should I use them to do what he
Does to you?

Mary, can you come outside?
Take a walk with me in the moonlight.
Maybe then you could tell me why,
All in all you seem to have it all
So why do you cry?
I hear you through the walls at night,
Mary, can you come outside?

Should I just sit here on these hands of mine
One more time?
Or should I use them to do what he...

Mary, can you come outside?
Take a walk with me in the moonlight?
Maybe then you could tell me why,
All in all you seem to have it all
So why do you cry?
I hear you through the walls at night.

Oh Mary, can you come outside?
Take a walk, take a walk with me tonight?
Maybe then you could tell me why...
Mary, can you come outside?
Sweet Mary can you come outside?

    Christian said once that this was about a next door neighbour, he says that she never spoke to him again after he "politely went over their and politely beat the f***ing s**t out of him" but that was fine with him because they (mary and her bf) broke up the next day.
