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 that 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

CHORUS
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

CHORUS

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
