Mary Alice Lyrics

Words and music: Beki

This song makes me mad at Beki for not writing more often. Simple yet profound lyrics, and a Chorus I wish I'd written.

Mary Alice couldn't stay, no she's leaving
Left her best friend in the wake, of another anniversary
I was waiting in the van, with my sister
Mommy wipe your tears away, it's just a bad day

We can change the world, we can change the world/surely, they can

They were yelling down the stairs, some years later
When my brother turned to say, "What do you think?
'cause I'm getting pretty scared," so I reassured him
They will never walk away, it's just a bad day

And we can change the world, we can change the world
That's what they say
They told me so in school, have I been played the fool, for believing?
But it's a necessary tool, and I'll probably teach my children the same way

So you look me in the face, and I can't stand you
Hey we all make our mistakes, I say
But I don't want to run away, from this another time
All the same I'm glad you're standing in my way, on the bad days

Because we can change the world, we can change the world
Bits and pieces, bits and pieces

Mary Alice went away, said she couldn't change it
Mom and Dad kissed at the bottom of the stairs
So when my love is falling into bits and pieces, I think of them
And try to put my pride away, when it's just a bad day

And we can change the world, we can change the world, etc...
