lyrics

Sweet Mary, drinking wine
I've just heard your lover died
So please take your hand in mine
We'll go walking through the night

And I've been on this road so long
I put my stories in my songs
It keeps my sorrow from taking
Now that my lovers, they are gone

But sweet Mary, drinking wine
Dry your tears and I'll say goodbye
And take my hand for one last time
We'll go walking side my side

Et le soleil lève sur St.Laurent
Mes yeux et mes mouvements so lent,
Pour le premier fois sa me semble
Que le futur n'est plus effrayant

And it may seem God is unkind
Causing pain more than standing by your side
But please darling don't you cry
And remember your saints are still alive

And outside your window there is the sky
And all of the movements of passersby
And all your worries of growing old
And all your stories left untold
And your life is more than grief and pain
Your love is an ember in the flames
Removed like a lung without shame
And your stories are kept under my name
