Johnny and Mary (feat Bryan Ferry) [Radio Edit] [Bonus Track] - Lyrics

Johnny's always running around
Trying to find certainty
He needs all the world to confirm
That he ain't lonely
Mary counts the walls
Knows he tires easily
Johnny thinks the world would be right
If it could buy truth from him
Mary says he changes his mind
More than a woman
But she made her bed
Even when the chance was slim

Running around
Running around

Johnny says he's willing to learn
when he decides he's a fool
Johnny says he'd live anywhere
When he earns time
Mary combs her hair
Says she should be used to it
Mary always hedges her bets
She NEVER knows what to think
She says that he still acts like he's being discovered
Scared that he'll be caught
Without a second thought

Running around
Running around
Running around
Running around

Johnny feels he's wasting his breath
Trying to talk sense to her
Mary says he's lacking a real sense of proportion
So she combs her hair
Knows he tires easily
Johnny's always running around
Trying to find certainty
He needs all the world to confirm
That he ain't lonely
Mary counts the walls
Says she should be used to it

Running around
Running around

Johnny's always running around
Running around
