Hey Mary are you still waiting?
Has your "thunder road" come along and gone and left you praying?
Your so called friends and the stories they tell
Don't really seem to fit you all that well
And anyway, all I need to believe in now is you
Hey Mary, can you feel it?
All the easy eyes upon you as you walk by
We're all just sinners living for the fall
I once read Him on the subway wall
It said some day that little boy of yours
Is going to save the world
And I believe it's true
We can waste a lifetime waiting
For a time to live or a time to die
Either way I know we've got to start tonight
This old town's got nothing left
For a couple of high school prom rejects
This old car has got a new headlight
And you can sleep while I drive
So slip a little closer next to me
And tell me everything that angel said
All the world swears you're a liar...
But you can sleep while I drive
