lyrics

Hello, we meet again
Seems you've got people talking
Not for reasons that you wanted tonight
Instead of standing tall
You'd rather stand divided
You're doing wrong instead of doing some right

For all the things I love
I won't lie
There's things you do, they make me so sad
I wanna love you Mary but you make me so mad

How did this get so hard?
I thought you'd learned your lesson
I tried to blame it on the folly of youth
But now you're at it again
The same old expectations
You've got some growing up to do

For all the things I love
I won't lie
There's things you do, they make me so sad
I wanna love you Mary but you make me so mad
I wanna love you Mary but you make me so mad

I'm tired of the arguments
I want a conversation
I want some brand new bright ideas
I want the best intentions
Did you hear the people speak?
Not just those that scream the loudest
I mean the others all just trying to live
I'm all for taking stands
So stand with those who need it
Stop asking more of those with nothing to give

For all the things I love
I won't lie
There's things you do, they make me so sad
I wanna love you Mary but you make me so mad
I wanna love you Mary but you make me so mad
