Danny Wilson – Marys Prayer lyrics

Everything is wonderful, Being here is heavenly
Every single day she sends, Everything is free
I used to be so careless, As if I couldn't care less
Did I have to make mistakes, When I was Mary's prayer?

Suddenly the heavens rolled, Suddenly the rain came down
Suddenly was washed away, The Mary that I knew
So when you find somebody you keep, Think of me and celebrate
I made such a big mistake, When I was Mary's Prayer


So if I say, save me, save me, Be the light in my eyes
And if I say, ten Hail Mary's, Leave a light on in heaven for me


Blessed is the one who shares, Your power and your beauty, Mary
Blessed is the millionaire, Who shares your wedding day
So when you find somebody you keep, Think of me and celebrate
I made such a big mistake, When I was Mary's Prayer


So if I say, save me, save me, Be the light in my eyes
And if I say, ten Hail Mary's, Leave a light on in heaven
Save me, save me, Be the light in my eyes
And if I say, ten Hail Mary's, Leave a light on in heaven for me


If you want the fruit to fall, You have to give the tree a shake
But if you shake the tree too hard, The bough is gonna break
And if I can't reach the top of your tree, Mary you can blow me up there
What I wouldn't give to be, When I was Mary's prayer


So if I say, save me, save me, Be the light in my eyes
And if I say ten Hail Mary's, Leave a light on in heaven
Save me, save me, Be the light in my eyes
And if I say, ten Hail Mary's, (Leave) Leave a light on in heaven
Save me, save me, Be the light in my eyes
What I wouldn't give to be, When I was Mary's prayer
What I wouldn't give to be, When I was Mary's prayer
What I wouldn't give (Save me) to be, When I was Mary's prayer

    This song is the most beautiful reminder of a lost love. The song is about an old girlfriend "mary". He obviously made a mess up of this past relationship and regrets it deeply. The line about blessed is the millionaire, to me seems she might have been high maintenance. Also about the fruit on the tree might mean something similar. Leave a light on in heaven, does this mean he hopes to meet her there? Sounds morbid! But it does emphasise how deeply this has effected him, perhaps he met her again I doubt it, but it is one of my favourite songs.

    I agree--think a user found a nurturer/giver. Someone to mother him. She thought he was the one she had been praying for and he was everything in her eyes. He probably cheated on her and she had enough (been propping him up to family and friends--mary you can hold me up there) and her eyes were opened. Reference the fruit from the tree--once adam and eve ate from the fruit their eyes were open. Was he the snake that ruined paradise?
    The verse where the heavens rolled and the rain washed away the mary that he knew--reminds me of the flood where god wanted to start over,.
    References to water is a cleansing, becoming a new person. Jesus put water on a blind man's eyes and he could see.
    The verse about blessed is the millionaire--the one that marrys her and has her in his life is rich.
    I like this song because a woman that is being taken advantage of and being walked on finally has enough and moves on to find someone who really cares about her.
    He realizes what he had and is remorseful and does his pentenence (saying 10 hail mary's).
    I'm not catholic--so I have probably missed alot in the references. I do know they pray to the madonna to act as an intermediary and I think that is what the chorus is saying.
    Great song--my favorite from the 80's
