lyrics

You say it's alright
No need to fear,
Oh, no, no, no

You're sat tight
Am I'm near
And there' no need to worry

You’re beautiful, you’re beautiful
But you're drowning all your blues
I've a fear of the world
And the toll it takes of you

If you're lost
Then I care
If you feel alone

And I'm here
If you're ashamed
When your promises are blown

You’re beautiful, you’re beautiful
But the devil holds the cards
And you need something sweet
And he pays you his regards

Oh Marie
You were waiting for the space to breathe
Waiting for the chance to leave
Now you can go anywhere
You please

Oh my love
Until the final moment you were through
I never thought that you would lose
Now you can go anywhere
Anywhere you choose
Anywhere you choose

And if you laugh
I swear I'll cry
'cos there's nothing here that's funny
Just a lie
A promise of sweet oblivion

You’re beautiful, you’re beautiful
But the world is closing in
You are here in my heart
But the devil’s in your skin

Oh Marie
You were waiting for the space to breathe
Waiting for the chance to leave
Now you can go anywhere
You please

Oh my love
Until the final moment you were through
I never thought that you would lose
Now you can go anywhere
Anywhere you choose
Anywhere you choose
