Lyrics

Come over to the window
My little darling
I'd like to try to read your palm
I used to think I was some kind
Of Gypsy boy
Before I let you take me home

Now so long, Marianne
It's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry
And laugh about it all again

Well you know
That I love to live with you
But you make me forget
So very much
I forget to pray for the angels
And then the angels forget
To pray for us

Now so long, Marianne
It's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry
And laugh about it all again

We met when we
Were almost young
Deep in the green lilac park
You held on to me like I
Was a crucifix
As we went kneeling
Through the dark

Oh so long, Marianne
It's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry
And laugh about it all again

Your letters they all say that
You're beside me now
Then why do I feel alone?
I'm standing on a ledge
And your fine spider web
Is fastening my ankle to a stone

Now so long, Marianne
It's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry
And laugh about it all again

For now I need your hidden love
I'm cold as a new razor blade
You left when I told you:
"I was curious"
I never said that I was brave
Oh so long, Marianne
It's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry
And laugh about it all again

Oh, you are really such a pretty one
I see you've gone and changed
Your name again
And just when I climbed this
Whole mountainside
To wash my eyelids in the rain
Oh so long, Marianne
It's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry
And laugh about it all again
