I think her name was Mary
I think her name was Jane
I think that either way
It still would be the same

I saw her every day
Hoping to catch her eye
I had so much to say
I kept on walking by

Her eye would never turn
As I would often try
Every time I would learn
The old pathetic lie

Saying she looks for him
I'd tell her now today
If I could just find them
The words I cannot say

The old pathetic lie
That I'd tell her today
I keep on walking by
The words I cannot say

The words I cannot say
I see them in her eyes
Looking the other way
Her sympathetic lies

This is kind of sad but sweet Walt. I like it!

"She looked at her life
like lines, never-ending,
constantly forming,
reforming and bending."
