Maria

Maria

Patti Smith

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
Drawn by its 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
Of the carousel
Tangoing
From Heaven to Hell
I knew you
