Patti Smith – Maria lyrics

At the edge of the world
Where you were no one
Yet you were the girl the only one

At the edge of the world in the desert heat
One shivering star, sweet, indiscreet

I knew you when we were young
I knew you when we were young
Now you're gone

In a little narcissus pool, drowned by a spell
We saw ourselves, raw, excitable

I knew you when we were young
I knew you when we were young
Now you're gone

We didn't know
The precariousness
Of our young powers
All the emptiness

Wild wild hair, such sad eyes
White shirt black tie you were mine

You grabbed the ring of the carousel
Time going from heaven to hell

I knew you
