VERSE(1): She looked good in my eyes And in everyone else's too She had it all together At least from other's point of view Always the one to be with And Mary was her name I didn't know her too well But enough to never be the same
She knew the things to say She knew the things to do She knew the people to know But Lord she never knew You
What Mary didn't know was the answer I was holdin' I didn't think she'd change so I never even tried How was I to know? I wish I would've told her Now I'll have to live and die with what Mary didn't know
VERSE(2): She was a seeker, lookin' to find Some kind of somethin' And I remember the time When we were talkin' Opportunity for me was prime But I missed, now I look back in my mind
Right on the tip of my tongue was, "Jesus died for you" The words stayed right there I never got through
VERSE(3): The day came for Mary to stand before the throne And as she saw the tears in her Father's eyes She cried, "I wish I would've known."
I knew things to say, I knew the things to do I knew the people to know, but God I never knew You.
