Patti Smith Maria Lyrics

Last updated: 01/04/2014 03:23:24 PM


At the edge of the world
Where you were no one
Yet you were the girl - the only one

At the edge of the world in the desert heat
One shivering star, sweet, indiscreet

I knew you when we were young
I knew you
Now you're gone

In a little narcissus pool, drowned by a spell
We saw ourselves - raw, excitable

I knew you when we were young
I knew you
Now you're gone

We didn't know
the precariousness
of our young powers
All the emptiness

Wild wild hair, sad sad eyes
White shirt, black tie - you were mine

You grabbed the ring on the carousel
Tangoing from heaven to hell

I knew you
