Amos, Tori - Marys Of The Sea Lyrics




Hey I am not in your way
Hey no need to push me again
I know it's your day in the sun
Last time I checked he came to light the lamp for everyone

"Relax love" he said before he left
"Take those hands away from your eyes
From where I stand you're in my sky"

You must go must flee
For they will hunt you down
You and your unborn seed
In all of Gaul is there safety?

Les Saint Marie de la Mer
You will dance the ring
Marys of the Sea
The lost bride weeps
Les Saint Marie de la Mer
We will dance your ring

Hey there's a new Jerusalem
Hey you built on rock that's on sand
For now you have hijacked the son
Last time I checked he came to light the lamp for everyone

I hear a voice and it says
"The red of the red rose is its own
And something no man can divide"
So St. Jermaine hear the prayer of this supplicant
For two scarlet women, Black Madonna
Hey I am not in your way
Hey no need to push me again
I know it's your day in the sun
I know it's your day in the sun
Hey I am not in your way
Hey no need to push me again
I know it's your day in the sun
Last time I checked he came to light the lamp for everyone

    When I was 17 I sang this to my fiancé before i left for collège. I was so very in love in those days...

  2. j sae

    *this* is epic songwriting.

    William Miller

    j sae indeed

  3. Christopher Schmitz

    Glorious! Tori writes melodies for the ages. She's up there with Sir Paul, Sir Elton, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Richard Rogers or anyone in the area of song craft. This is "The Beekeeper's" best song.

    j sae

    totally the best song on the beekeeper. sounds so much to me like a song from a musical (i'm not really a fan of musicals at all, but this song is the sh*t) ...its a song from a feminist 'godspell' or a gothic-operatic 'hair'...

  4. Sean O'Reilly

  5. winogirlll

    Relax love, he said before HE left take those hands away from your eyes. From where I stand your in my sky. Love that part- brilliant lyrics Tori!
