​Mary-Lou

This song is by Sonata Arctica and appears on the album Ecliptica (1999) and on the album Orientation (2001).


Mamas put your babies to sleep,
Story too cruelsome for them this is
In junior high she said goodbye to her parents
And ran away with a boy.
She left her family warm and kind,
All of her friends said "you're out of your mind"
Life of her own she would find,
It's Monday and she's gotta grind

Job as a waitress she sure was to find,
Beautiful face, mind of a child.
Boy got her pregnant, Mary-Lou cried
"For this I am too young oh why did you lie
You said "it's okay if we do it today,"
I was so scared that you would go away.
Despite all the papers been signed,
Mama take me back be so kind."

Only a child, reckless and wild, needs to come home again
He promised the moon but won't marry you
Nothing to do, eating for two,
He's going out with someone new
Sunshine or rain, it's all the same,
Life isn't gray, oh Mary-Lou

Mamas do your children still sleep,
In the safe of their cradles so sweet
Story I told you I have foreseen,
Your little angel ain't always so clean
Days to come aren't easy to see,
You can change 'em but it isn't free
I see that you don't believe, but you will see

Only a child, reckless and wild, needs to come home again
He promised the moon but won't marry you
Nothing to do, eating for two,
He's going out with someone new
Sunshine or rain, it's all the same,
Life isn't gray, oh Mary-Lou

Only a child, reckless and wild, needs to come home again
He promised the moon but won't marry you
Nothing to do, eating for two,
He's going out with someone new
Sunshine or rain, it's all the same,
Life isn't gray, oh Mary-Lou.
