Marylyn

VERSE 1

It was a year ago today

When she had said she’d lost her way

I still taste those Camel blues and cheap champagne

 

Oklahoma’s such a drag

When you’ve forgotten what you had

They will dress you up in borrowed suits and names

But the more you change the more you feel the pain

 

CHORUS

Marylyn, it don’t come easy

Oh the truth, it falls like snow

Marylyn, please believe me

We’re just ripples in these waters don’t you know

 

VERSE 2

Fantasies, unrealized dreams

Of futures, come undone

Evergreens, hilltops rambling

 

California’s such a drag

When you’ve forgotten what you had

They will dress you up in borrowed suits and names

But the more you change the more you feel the pain

 

BRIDGE

I heard she bought a busted trailer

And locked up her faded dreams

I always sympathized and bastardized

Now she’s living on the run

Heading west to the fires in the sun

 

CHORUS

Marylyn, it don’t come easy

Oh the truth, it falls like snow

Marylyn, please believe me

We’re just ripples in these waters don’t you know
