An Idea About Mary - radio edit - Lyrics

A sailor a sailor did drown my heart
because of your thunderous wave goodbye
and I never saw you sleeping
in your matching shoes
So a part of me still thinks you're alive
and if my mam is feeling better
we'll take some sandwiches for the road
and we'll drive into the lights on the way home
and my dad talks about the weather
says 'the arse is falling out of the sky'
the day that Mary died

Oh lover!
I've got plenty so why do I feel
like I've got nothing oh lover!
i'm so empty, who am I now?
tell me who i'm going to be
or just give me back me

My saviour is braver than I can be
taking all the weapons out of my mind
and I sing for my supper but I sing for me
so a part of me is aching to survive
(Someone put a shape on me)

Oh lover!
I've got plenty so why do I feel
like I've got nothing oh lover!
i'm so empty, who am I now?
tell me who i'm going to be
or just give me back me

Oh lover!
I've got plenty
So why do i feel like I need something else
then give me something else
Or give me back me.
(Someone put a shape on me)
(Someone put a shape on me)
(Someone put a shape on me)

Oh lover!
I've got plenty so why do I feel like I've got nothing
Oh lover!
i'm so empty, who am I now?
who am I now?

Oh lover! i've got plenty...
So why do i feel like I need something else
So give me something else
If I need something else
then give me back me.
