Mary belongs to the words of a song.
I try to be strong for her, try not to be wrong for her.
But she will not wait for me, anymore, anymore.
Why did I say all those things before? I was sure.

(She is the one), but I have a purpose,
(she is the one), and I have to fight this,
(she is the one), a villian I can't knock down.

I see your face with every punch I take,
And every bone I break, it's all for you.
And my worst pains are words I cannot say,
Still I will always fight on for you.

Mary's alive in the bright New York sky,
The city lights shine for her, above them I cry for her.
Everything's small on the ground below, down below.
What if I fall, then where would I go, would she know?

(She is the one), all that I wanted,
(she is the one), and I will be haunted,
(she is the one), this gift is my curse for now.

I see your face with every punch I take,
And every bone I break, it's all for you.
And my worst pains are words I cannot say,
Still I will always fight on for you. Fight on for you ...

I see your face with every punch I take,
And every bone I break, it's all for you
And my worst pains are words I cannot say
Still I will always fight on for you. Fight on for you. Fight on for you...

    this has really something to do with spiderman. I think it was entitled "gifts and curses" because the person just receive a gift (like spidey, who had powers), but instead of being happy, became sad, because he was losing his love.

    great song .

    I think he's singing about a girl that he loves, who died somehow, and he's still missing her, but he's trying to get stronger to make sure he can help other people. I just think of it like this because I watch a lot of anime, but I still think this is an awesome song anyway.
