Marynell Lyrics

Marynell by Lems Kristin  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Marynell Marynell, I did not know you very well
Marynell hello, how have you been?
Now nine years later here we sit
To hear this singer tell of it
And all those years drift back to me again.
I was lonely, you were probably lonely too
But in those days, I never would have known
High School kept us all apart
And we did not know how to start
To cut through the defenses we had grown.
The earliest of stirrings were already born inside
That, later on, would grow to greater length
We marched against the war, and Dr. King had not yet died
But we had not begun to test our strength.
How strange it passed, all those changes came so fast
As each new action burned upon our souls
It was a time to raise your voice, to try and make a moral choice
With freedom and equality our goals.
Marynell, I still don't know you very well
But we're part of something greater than ourselves.
Those restless days not far behind,
You at your school and I at mine
We took home more than books now on our shelves
I have the same convictions that I first knew back in school
Though quieter, they're with me everywhere
Though days of rage are silent now, these times are no less cruel
Tell me Marynell, do you still care?
Tell me Marynell, do you still care?
