Jesus & Mary Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Remember when you said we'd marry
On the wilder shores of love
The tide, it changes fast
Oh when you're fast it never lasts
Verse 2
I cannot read between your lines
You cannot make me read your tiny mind
Oh who's got the time
Oh you'd go blind
Verse 0
[Chorus]
Jesus & Mary are taking me down
To the other side of town
Where they don't count the days
With steel blades on the walls of time
They just dance naked in the sun all the time
Verse 3
She's the jewel in your crown
But I'm the gold that's gonna wear you down
I'll keep you around this dirty old town
Verse 4
Every time I put the stove on
Dinner's cold by the time you come over
Oh you turn over on that cold shoulder
Verse 5
[Chorus]
Verse 6
When you call and you call my name
Baby, hazy, lazy
Oh I'll sign on the dotted line
When I lie back, I lie on my back
Baby, hazy, lazy
Oh I am not an animal
Verse 7
Don't bring me down
Don't bring me down
Don't bring me down
Don't bring me down
Don't bring me down
Don't bring me down
