Mary
Robert Fripp Lyrics


That a creature could be so lonely
It became my deepest wish
To give her my love
To embrace her forever
And to have her find some peace
She who was so lonely
Came with volumes of feeling I have never known
Except perhaps for Mary
And she was always my sister
And she was always my sister

That a creature could be so lonely
It became my deepest wish
To give her my love
To embrace her forever
And to have her find some peace
She who was so lonely
Came with volumes
Volumes of feeling
I have never known
Except perhaps for Mary
And she was always my sister

lyrics meaning everything to me... :

That a creature could be so lonely
It became my deepest wish
To give her my love
To embrace her forever
And to have her find some peace
She who was so lonely
Came with volumes of feeling I have never known
Except perhaps for Mary
And she was always my sister
And she was always my sister

That a creature could be so lonely
It became my deepest wish
To give her my love
To embrace her forever
And to have her find some peace
She who was so lonely
Came with volumes
Volumes of feeling
I have never known
Except perhaps for Mary
And she was always my sister

Wow this is beautiful. Robert I just love you so much. My mom died a year ago yesterday. Her name was Mary and this song could easily be about her and my grandmother. Her name is Mary also.

All the tonalities she gives to this song (both Terre Roche and Fripp's guitar), absolute touching.

Valfredo De Matteis

it's embarassing the sincerity of the first verse. This is sublime

Nothing could make this song any better. It's perfect, exactly as it is, with the singers it has and the music. That's all.
