So Long, Marianne Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Come over to the window, my little darling
I'd like to try to read your palm
I'm standing on a ledge, and you fine spider's web
Is fastening my ankle to the bone
Verse 2
So long, Marianne, it's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again
Verse 3
We met when we were almost young
You made me forget so very much
I forgot to pray for the angels
And then the angels forgot to pray for us
Verse 4
So long, Marianne, it's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again
Verse 5
For now I need your hidden love
I'm cold as a new razor blade
You left when I told you I was curious
But I never said that I was brave
Verse 6
So long, Marianne, it's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again
About it all again
So long, Marianne
So long, Marianne
Marianne!
Marianne!
Verse 7
Now you're really such a pretty one
I see you've gone and changed your name again
And just when I climbed this whole mountainside
I see you in the distance, on the plains
Verse 8
So long, Marianne, it's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again
About it all again
About it all again
So long, Marianne
So long, Marianne
Verse 9
All the fights
With that big kitchen knife
All the lies
And the hate that you spat
All those long, long, furious nights
All those long, long, furious nights
All the tears that we shed
The excitement we had
And the unmade bed
With that big kitchen knife
And the crimes we committed at night
Yeah, the crimes we committed at night
For a love we could never get right
For a love we could never get right
So long, Marianne!
So long, Marianne!
Marianne!
