Dear Marie
John Mayer Lyrics


Dear Marie, tell me what it was I used to be
Dear Marie, tell me what it was I used to be
And if you're further up the road can you show me what I still can't see

Remember me, I'm the boy you used to love when we were fifteen
Remember me, I'm the boy you used to love when we were fifteen
Now I wonder what you think when you see me on the magazine

From time to time, I go looking for your photograph online
From time to time, I go looking for your photograph online
Some county judge in Ohio is all I ever find

Dear Marie, tell me do you still believe in me
Dear Marie, tell me do you still believe in me
Yeah I've got my dream but you've got family
Yeah I've got my dream but you've got family
Yeah I've got my dream but I guess it got away from me

Remember me, I'm the boy you used to love when we were fifteen
Remember me, I'm the boy you used to love when we were fifteen
Now I wonder what you think when you see me on the magazine.

From time to time, I go looking for your photograph online

Dear Marie, tell me do you still believe in me
Dear Marie, tell me do you still believe in me
Yeah I've got my dream but you've got family
Yeah I've got my dream but you've got family
Yeah I've got my dream but I guess it got away from me

Somewhere in Connecticut is a married mother sitting at her computer desk late in the night, when her family is asleep... listening to this... knowing she's exactly the woman he's singing of... and no one else but John has to know that... The power of wonderfully written music!

@Lucas Castro no problem

Lucas Castro

@#JennS oh, sorry. It was a little misunderstanding so

#JennS

@Lucas Castro yes Lucas, I know about the first girlfriend. It seems as tho some comments have been deleted that I was speaking on. Thank you

Lucas Castro

@#JennS actually they didn't, John already said that dear marie os about an old girlfriend that he used to date, but different name, of course

#JennS

Sorry but you’re all wrong

we all have our version of "Marie" - someone we shared a brief, juvenile love with together, but never mounted to anything significant. And years later, we are on different paths. Too late now to ever reach out to establish something, but you get to hold onto a pure memory that you can bring up from time to time. The memory gets cloudier after decades, but that's part of this beauty, I suppose.

"Yeah I’ve got my dream but you’ve got family"
That is one of the most heartbreaking lyrics I've ever heard
