Johnny and Mary

Lyrics

playJohnny's always running around
playTrying to find certainty
playHe needs all the world to confirm
playThat he ain't lonely
playMary counts the walls
playKnows he tires easily

playJohnny thinks the world would be right
playIf it could buy truth from him
playMary says he changes his mind
playMore than a woman
playBut she made her bed
playEven when the chance was slim

playJohnny says he's willing to learn
playWhen he decides he's a fool
playJohnny says he'll live anywhere
playWhen he earns time to
playMary combs her hair
playSays she should be used to it

playMary always hedges her bets
playShe never knows what to think
playShe says that he still acts like he's
playBeing discovered
playScared that he'll be caught
playWithout a second thought
playRunning around

playJohnny feels he's wasting his breath
playTrying to talk sense to her
playMary says he's lacking a real
playSense of proportion
playSo she combs her hair
playKnows he tires easily

playJohnny's always running around
playTrying to find certainty
playHe needs all the world to confirm
playThat he ain't lonely
playMary counts the walls
playSays she should be used to it

playJohnny's always running around
playRunning around
