Dear Marley (Ferron)

Went to the lake Where we used to take each other When we felt we were young. I stared at the water 'Til I got what I came for When I turned to the moon It was gone. I write you this letter I hope it does matter I know that at one time It's you I betrayed. O-oh, Marley Jones I'd give half of my freedom To know you would roam. I would steal the money If it would bring you home. I wanna see you again. Heard from a mutual friend You were doing quite well Without selling your soul. Me I run with the fast ones, I lay down with the tired ones, It's a method that has proved its own toll. I think of that morning All grey with your leaving When you said, pretty sure, That I never could give. O-oh, Marley Jones I'd give half of my freedom To know you would roam. I would steal the money If it would bring you home. I wanna see you again. Write me a line Whether bitter or giving; I'm needing to know how we stand. As sure as we parted I could have stayed with you; It's a lesson that burns holes in my hand. What more can I tell you With time so between us? It's mostly I want you to know that I know. O-oh Marley Jones Choice carves a crevice Where a river could flow. It can seal up a highway So a shadow can't grow.
