Riding with Mary

This song is by X and appears on the album Under the Big Black Sun (1982) and on the live album Live at the Whisky A Go-Go on the Fabulous Sunset Strip (1988).

They can't go to sleep at four
The car is parked outside the door
Scars of a knife on his arm
Her husband knows they're together

Riding with Mary
Protection to pass
Riding with mary
Protecting immaculate love

Rows of numbered doors behind
The car warms up
The street is clear
And empty and green with lights
They talk and never stop moving
He's sounding her name in his head
She's falling asleep next to his face
Her sister's getting married today
And the saints of Easter smile

Riding with Mary
Protection to pass
Riding with mary
Protecting immaculate love

On the dashboard rides a figurine
A powerless sweet forgotten thing
So the next time you see a statue of Mary
Remember my sister was in a car

Riding with Mary
Protection to pass
Riding with mary
Protecting immaculate love
