Margaret Lyrics

Margaret by Edie Carey  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Margaret Hearing her voice
was like hearing the future
So I covered my ears
'cause I didn't want to hear her
And just the same her words
come spilling out of my mouth

Looking at her is like
looking in the mirror
So I closed my eyes
'cause I didn't want to see her
And just the same
my body moves with hers

You see I wanted to go down where the water would wash it away
Where I could make my own tracks
You are your mother's daughter they say and I say
Tell me something I don't know
See she'd done some things
I didn't want to repeat
So I thought if I closed her out
I'd come away clean
So I told her my worries
that I'd marry twice
And never learn to love right
And she said what you have learned from me is your self respect
What I hope you've learned is when to leave a burning building

You see I wanted to go down where the water would wash it away
Where I could make my own tracks
You are your mother's daughter they say and I say
Tell me something I don't know

So the card said
'I have news for you
You aren't me and I'm not you
Just 'cause we lose things
and we tell the truth
It doesn't mean anything
'Cause above all
you have always been you'

Now I only hope
that one day I can fill her shoes
And I'll be who I'll be
by using her tools
She knew what would hurt her so she chose to move on
Life is too short, she said, to love Mr. Wrong
He's wrong

She wanted to go down where the water would wash it away
Where she could make
her own tracks
You are your mother's daughter they say and I say
Now I say, I say thank you
