or
The Golden Palominos

Sweet as Mary out of sheer love
Runs the water
Clean and beautiful
Leaves it standing on a Sunday
Here's the ritual

She has never been so pure has never been so pure

She throws down her trail of cigarette
Sunday wishes
Sunday wishes for his arrival
This one blessing
She wants nothing more

Out of sheer love
Out of sheer love

She has never been so pure has never been so pure

Below the surface she comes up for air and
She finds

She has never been so pure and full of desire
She has never been so pure

Seven pale scars out so sheer love
Seven pale scars
Here's the ritual out of sheer love
A small sacrifice
Clean and beautiful

She has never been so pure has never been so pure

Below the surface of something too familiar
She comes up for air, she's drowning in this shallow water
Trying to believe, seek and you shall find

She has never been so pure has never been so pure

Out of sheer love
Out of sheer love

She's drowning in shallow water
Trying to have faith and it's hard
Seek and you shall find
Sweet as Mary
Out of sheer love
Runs the water
Clean and beautiful
