Johnny & Mary


Johnny's always running around
trying to find certainty.
He needs all the world to confirm
that he ain't lonely 

Mary counts walls, knows he tires easily 

Johnny thinks the world would be right
if it would buy truth from him. 
Mary says he changes his mind
more than a woman. 

But she made her bed
even when the chance was slim. 

Johnny says he's willing to learn
when he decides he's a fool. 
Johnny say's he'll live anywhere
when he earns time to. 

Mary combs her hair
says she should be use to it. 

Mary always edges her bets
she never knows what to think. 
She says that he still acts
like he's being discovered. 

Scared that he'll get caught
without a second thought 

Johnny feels he's wasting his breath
trying to talk sense to her 
Mary says he's lacking a real
sense of proportion 
So she combs her hair, knows he tires easily 

Johnny's always running around
trying to find certainty. 
He needs all the world to confirm
that he ain't lonely 

Mary counts walls, says she should be use to it.
