Susan Werner – St. Mary's Of Regret lyrics

I'm wearing that dress, I've pulled on those gloves
I put on my veil, we once were in love
We once had it all the entire sky
We threw it away and I wonder why

Passion's always half impossibility
But lovers that we lose we never dare forget
We visit them in mourning in December and in May
In the graveyard of St. Mary's of Regret

The end of the street, the wrought-iron gate
The cobblestone path, the names and the date
The anxious hello, the everyday laugh
The intimate tears, the epitaph

Passion's always half impossibility
But lovers that we lose we never dare forget
We visit them in mourning in December and in May
In the graveyard of St. Mary's of Regret

You're married by now
She's kind I suppose
Does she know what she has?
Does she tell you she knows?

Do you put on the suit?
Do you try on the tie?
Do you walk through that gate?
Do you wonder why?

Passion's always half impossibility
But lovers that we lose we never dare forget
Maybe someday there I'll see you in December or in May
In the graveyard of St. Mary's of Regret
In the graveyard of St. Mary's of Regret

We never dare forget

    Susan warner is such an incredible word smith. She is able to cover years or even decades in just a few words or lines reflecting the struggles that a couple had as they married and tried to make a go of it. They loved each other, it is clear, but their love could not sustain their relationship. Susan does not explicitly say why the relationship dissolved but, perhaps, some insight can be gleaned from the line "does she know what she has? Does she tell you she knows? " I have heard it said that love can endure anything but neglect. Perhaps they failed to remind each other of how fortunate they are to have found the other and so their relationship died.
    I was thinking about buying a cd player when I heard this song on a demo mix. I loved the song so much that I determined that if I could find this cd somewhere I would buy a cd player just so that I could listen to it. I found "last of the good straight girls" and fell in love with susan werner.
    Thank you, susan, for sharing your great gift so that I, and perhaps we, can verbalize our deepest feelings through the words that you have so beautifully crafted together.
