Mary was a friend of mine
Very close at heart to me
I had to let her fly away
Into the night an angel to be

Nothing more that hurt me so
Than to stand and say goodbye
She had always told me
“Son, this day would come”

And in her final days
In a weak voice she said
“It’s time together
Together that we pray”

"Don’t you ever feel cheated
Coming up you had what you needed
Nothing in this world ever happens by mistake
Son, please have faith"

Now the years have passed
I remember vividly
She said, “Say with me
And the pain will pass”

Mary was a friend of mine
Very close at heart to me
I had to let her fly away
Into the night an angel to be

Into the night an angel to be
Into the night an angel to be
Into the night an angel to be
“Son, please have faith”
