VERSE 1:
Sing me to the doorway
Sing me out of bed
He's holding out for something
That I haven't said

Like a slice of diamond
In a pool of light
He's flashing like a signal
Then he's out of sight

CHORUS:
Oh, Marie, I'm sane enough to be
Crazy for the look deep in his eye
But me, oh, my, I'm not strong enough to lie
Say that it don't matter
And that my heart don't shatter
Every time we turn to say goodbye

VERSE 2:
I'm standing in the kitchen
With my heart unfurled
I've been thinking of this
Ever since I was a girl

But he's holding out for something
That will never come
He wants to fight the good fight
He's already won

CHORUS:
Oh, Marie, I'm sane enough to be
Crazy for the look deep in his eye
But me, oh, my, I'm not strong enough to lie
Say that it don't matter
And that my heart don't shatter
Every time we turn to say goodbye

Oh, Marie, I'm not blind to see
All the ways he left me high and dry
But me, oh, my, I'm left to wonder why
My heart's still burning
Oh we stop the world from turning
Every time we turn to say goodbye
Oh, Marie
