Cletis Carr Mother Mary Lyrics

Last updated: 08/30/2011 11:00:00 AM

Mary waits at the Tudor Hotel
Strong and assured, yet so feminine
Stands so firm, not so much for herself
As for the unborn baby she carries within
She's there to decide on the right thing to do
Should she run away, and never look back
Or to go back home and face the truth
Cause her future's about to catch up her past

Take your time, Mother Mary
Step light so you don't fall
You know, life's just like a baby
We all want to walk before we crawl
She looks through her bag on the marble tiles
A photograph of a brown-eyed man
She keeps it close, she says for her child
Should he ever need to see his Dad
She breathes a sigh and whispers his name
Too many things still left unsaid
Mostly pride, and just a little shame
This world doesn't like it's mothers unwed

Take your time, Mother Mary
Step light so you don't fall
You know, life's just like a baby
We all want to walk before we crawl

An old woman stares out the window, lonely and lost
An old couple sits at a table, and Mary thinks, that could be us

Mary waits at the Tudor Hotel
Picks up her bag, makes up her mind
The doors revolve like a circus carousel
Takes one last look, says goodbye

Take your time, Mother Mary
Step light so you don't fall
You know, life's just like a baby
We all want to walk before we crawl
