lyrics

Grace is a good woman
the mother of my girls
she has sky-blue yes
blond hair in curls

we've been together for so long
she didn't see me anymore
i was like a cloudless sky
or a stainless floor

Marie was half my age
I'd come to hear her sing
sometimes we'd walk out by the lake
I always wore my ring

I knew better, yes I did
and I thought I understood,
but it's hard when someone looks at you
like you're something good

Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm,
Marie, Marie

She had scars and welts
up and down her arms
worst of all you saw her soul
had come into some harm

I tried to end it she had darkness
that would swallow me
she said I was the only man
ever to see her bleed

They found her in the morning
cold in the frozen lake
her clothes piled by the shore
the dark her soul to take

I wake up in the morning
and I get to work on time
I put two words together
and I call them mine

I take my girls out for a walk
after I kiss my wife
if I were a man of honor
I'd pay with my life
