Marianna

It’s never to be, it’s so predictable but you’re so outrageous to me, how you’ll never be free,

And with such grace you regret the haste with which you’ve thrown it all away, don’t get led astray.

Your nature shines upon my day like pearls of wisdom from Hemingway, you’re my lonesome cabaret.

Don’t get lost in that old beef with that newjack whose on the block, watch your double talk.

Marianna, your mistakes were the start of everything we’ve got.

Marianna, I’m sorry for your loss, ’cause time’s the greatest cost – to a girl like you.

Don’t go for rib, resist the urge, you know that everything’s not lost, no matter the cost.

Implausibility is what drives me to see that you’re the one, forgive me if I’ve jumped the gun.

Marianna, your mistakes were the start of everything we’ve got.

Marianna, I’m sorry for your loss, ’cause time’s the greatest cost – to a girl like you.

It’s never to be, it’s so predictable that I would fall for you, my crooked honeydew.

You’ll face the row, my beau, you know our love will grow and grow, no matter what’s in store.

Marianna, your mistakes were the start of everything we’ve got.

Marianna-oh-wa-oh-wa-ah we’ll never have the bond or love that we just want to feel –

I dreamt you’d walk out free, redeemed, allowed to feel.

Yeah, you’ve shown me how to love again, my dear.

Oh, I care to be the one who’s by your side,

Everything will be just fine, my dear.

Everything, girl, it’s not your ultimatum,

Everything, even though it’s permanent.
