       G                  C
Oh the cold wet wind blew over the heavens
G                       C
you wrote charlie and mary for forever
       G                     C                    G    C
on the back of the rock that you picked up on the way

            G                C
and in that perfect moment i nearly ruined it
G                      C
saying I loved you and nearly meaning it
G                    C                 G         C
but you know what we never waste those words

          D                 C                        G           G
oh when i last saw mary she lied and said it was her birthday
          D                 C                        G           G
oh when i last saw mary she lied and said it was her birthday
