Mary Ann and Him

Mary Ann and Him

(Tekst: Ellen Marie Løkslid, Jeffrey A. Wasserman)

Mary Ann, she waited
Like those pictures she’d painted
Of Mary Ann and him
Clingin’ to a lover’s sin 

Julian, he was never that open
Kept her longing, all those words unspoken
About Mary Ann and him
Clingin’ to a lover’s sin

She was bound to holy moments
When love was strong and overflowing
Between Mary Ann and him
Clingin’ to a lover’s sin

Gazing upon her beauty, he lost all defence
His good intentions, never called for her patience
For stayin’ in
Clingin’ to a lover’s sin

As indescision slowly set the tone
She clinged to the holy, t’keep from turning to stone 
And unveiling the hidden sin
Of Mary Ann and him
