Vs. 1
She looked good in my eyes
And in everyone elses too
She had it all together
At least from others point of view
Always the one to be with
And Mary was her name
I didn't know her too well
But enough to never be the same
She knew the things to say
She knew the things to do
She knew the people to know
But Lord she never knew You
What Mary didn't know was the answer I was holdin
I didn't think she'd change so I never even tried
How was I to know?
I wish I wouldve told her
Now I'll have to live and die with what Mary didn't know
Vs. 2
She was a seeker, lookin to find
Some kind of somethin
And I remember the time
When we were talkin
Opportunity for me was prime
But I missed it, now I look back in my mind
Right on the tip of my tongue was, Jesus died for you
The words stayed right there
I never got through
Have mercy on her soul, have mercy on me
I was weak, please forgive me
Chorus
Vs. 3
The day came for Mary to stand before the throne
And as she saw the tears in her Fathers eyes
She cried,I wish I wouldve known.
I knew things to say, I knew the things to do
I knew the people to know, but God I never knew You.
Someday I'll answer for. . .
Chorus
