Dessa - Dear Marie Lyrics




Dear Marie, you were right about me
Dear Marie, you were right, you were right

I should have been kinder
I surely knew better
Not much of a writer
But I'm sending a letter
I hope it finds you
In love and at peace
Don't need much of your time
For this apology
Oh, Dear Marie, you were right about me
Dear Marie, you were right, you were right

You said that I could leave you lonely in a crowded room
By smiling bright for everyone but you
And I'm embarrassed to confess it, but it all rings true
You said that charm of mine was easy to abuse

And if I'm so smart
How can I learn so slow
You had the hard part
I was the last to know
I let the flash blind me
The years pass by
Standing in your light for most of the time
And I did it, I kissed him
I knew it would hurt you
But it put down my loneliness
And that felt like virtue enough

I know it's much too late
No need to reply
I put us all at stake
Marie, you were right

You said that I could leave you lonely in a crowded room
Just by smiling bright for everyone but you
And I'm embarrassed to confess it, but it all rings true
You said that charm of mine was easy to abuse

I've had one too many
It takes quite a few
Was counting my losses
Wasn't sure if I should count you
And I know it's much too late
No need to reply
I put us all at stake
Marie, you were
Marie, you were right

    When I listen I hear that apology I always thought I wanted, but coming up five years too late to make a difference. Beautiful and empty, the music is a perfect match for the lyrics. Thank you Dessa.

    Lyrics

    Dear Marie, you were right about me
    Dear Marie, you were right, you were right

    [Verse 1]
    I should have been kinder
    I surely knew better
    Not much of a writer
    But I'm sending a letter
    I hope it finds you
    In love and at peace
    Don't need much of your time
    For this apology
    Oh, Dear Marie, you were right about me
    Dear Marie, you were right, you were right

    [Hook]
    You said that I could leave you lonely in a crowded room
    By smiling bright for everyone but you
    And I'm embarrassed to confess it, but it all rings true
    You said that charm of mine was easy to abuse

    [Verse 2]
    And if I'm so smart
    How can I learn so slow
    You had the hard part
    I was the last to know
    I let the flash blind me
    The years pass by
    Standing in your light for most of the time
    And I did it, I kissed him
    I knew it would hurt you
    But it put down my loneliness
    And that felt like virtue enough

    [Bridge 1]
    I know it's much too late
    No need to reply
    I put us all at stake
    Marie, you were right

    I really love this song. Every time i listen to this voice and lyrics, I feel a real friend is talking with me or the words is from my mind. i am thinking about when i am getting 45 years old and my friends are not my friends any more. i will sit in frontt of the windowns, i will trun on youtube listen this. coz i always imagine i will end alone in my life. this song really trun me sad when i am listening alone.
