something ’bout mary lyrics – big umbrella

———————-
somethin’ bout mary’s changed
and i’m not sure what it is
lately, she’s acting strange
running scared from a secret storm
somethin’ has been arranged
but i don’t know all the details
somethin’ bout mary’s changed
trade a secret for a secret
i suspect she’s got herself in a bit of trouble
but she don’t want to take another soul on a sinking ship.
oh, but mary
this is scary
somethin’ bout mary’s changed
and i’m sure that it’s dangerous
watch the way she says his name
it’s a deadpan echo from a face of stone
whispering a cold refrain
that i beg her to explain
she said that last thing i recall
was the counting backwards
i suspect she’s got herself in a bit of trouble
but she don’t want to take another soul on a sinking ship.
oh, but mary
this is scary
listen mary
this is the way it’s gotta be for you, mary
cloudy for awhile
these are the bones that you gotta carry
and no one can go with you
this is the way it’s gotta be for you, mary
these are the bones that you gotta carry
on your murder mile
somethin’ bout mary’s changed
somethin’ bout mary’s changed
trade a secret for a secret
one secret for another
somethin’ bout mary
