Minnie Driver – Mary lyrics
Eyes as blue as the cheapest streets
That you build your hotels on
You take the pennies I'm betting with
Because cash is cash

I steal your whiskey and cigarettes
From behind the old television set
It's still got a dial
When I get sick, you smile

Oh, oh, are you watching?
Sometimes it's so hard to see
Oh, oh, are you watching?
Mary watch over me

When I was bloodied and broken
From a deadbeat kind of love
You laughed as you held my hand
And said, “Go on and cry"

"But let that be the very last thing
That you give him darling
Now let's go on in the house
And make a voodoo doll”

Oh, oh, are you watching?
Sometimes it's so hard to see
Oh, oh, are you watching?
Mary watch over me

Got a faded photograph
Lying just like me
I folded it in half
I keep it with me

Oh, you didn't go quietly
Into the great white shining light
You were hopped up on love
And singing Johnny Cash

You looked up and you yelled at me
You said, "Bad is cheap and good is free
So don't pull any fast ones kid
'Cause I’ll be watching you”

Oh, oh, are you watching?
Sometimes it's so hard to see
Oh, oh, are you watching?
Mary watch over me, yeah, yeah, watch over me
