Mary, Mary

from City of Silver Dreams

Mary, Mary, the night came so soon
You carried a baby across a sea of dunes
Born to a mad world
Weren’t you once a young girl
How many days, how many days have gone

Star child, eyes wide, laying at your breast
A stable, fable, nights without a rest
Mystics, magi, wise men
A king, a child, a Godsend
How many days, how many days have gone

And Mother please - close your eyes when you think of me
Oh children leave – only angels know their destiny – their destiny

Mary, Mary, Christmas came by you
In your motherhood, the pain, the good
The angels sang “Halleluia!”
Born to a mad world
Weren’t you once a young girl
How many days, how many days
How many days, how many days
How many days....have gone
How many days....how many days have gone
