Mary Jane

Lyrics Written by Kathryn Cloward and Rich Wiley

Mary Jane I know who you are
From the moment we met
I knew right from the start
I said I was fine when asked if I mind
I just wanted to see what I wanted to see
The happiness I thought we’d find
Was really just an altered state of mind

Mary Jane we never play fair
We circle around but going nowhere
You think it’s me and I say it’s you
But we can’t see the trees
Or the forest that grew
Between what was and what could be
And giving up just came so easily

Behind the veil it’s only me
Bending to the shape
Of how I thought that things should be
I struggle to speak and tell you true
I’m sorry for the hurt that we walked through
A rose by any name would smell the same
I don’t blame you anymore
Mary Jane

Mary Jane my lips were sealed
I got the shame while you got to heal
It is what it is I swallowed the pill
While you walk away and I foot the bill
The emptiness is hard to face
Because there’s just some things
You can’t replace

Behind the veil it’s only me
Bending to the shape
Of how I thought that things should be
I struggle to speak and tell you true
I’m sorry for the hurt that we walked through
A rose by any name would smell the same
I don’t blame you anymore
Mary Jane
