My Marie (Clark/Robinson)


I saw you down in the underground
With a knight in tarnished armor
You looked a little harder
But there was softness in your smile

The magic spell you weave so well
Still lives in me unbroken
My love for you unspoken
And it's been there all the while

I can't believe it's really you, my Marie
Have you finally realized where you want to be
I've known all the time
Somewhere down the line
You were meant to be with me, Marie

The last I 've heard, your painted word
Lived with canvas dancers
Who asked you for no answers
To the questions you deny

You bring the darkened walls to light
While the city rolls in slumber
Reflecting what you remember
From the ages you've survived

I can believe it's really you, my Marie
Have you finally realized where you want to be
I've known for sometimes
Somewhere down the line
You were meant to be with me, Marie

Your brush it swirls, through worlds now lost
To wars of greed and passion
And to the few that do survive
There is no satisfaction

The angry sons who pound the drums
Of dogma and religion
Know nothing of your vision
That true love never dies

I've plundered through a fortune
Just to take a beggar's wages
While I try to write the pages
Of the book of many lifes

I can't believe it's really you, my Marie
Have you finally realized where you want to be
I've known for some time
Somewhere down the line
You were meant to be with me, Marie

So here we meet, on a one-way street
In this village full of clutter
And you know that no one knows you fight
You know there is no other

The mirror of the morning
Finds a poet half awakened
With a song that was mistaken
In a dream still in his mind

I can't believe it's really you, my Marie
Have you finally realized, where you want to be
I've known for sometime
Somewhere down the line
You were meant to be with me, Marie
