“Marie’s Theme” Lyrics

Mike: Now this is a new one. That way uh, we’re all straight.

His only remark was a closing remark
That one sometimes hears between friends
And he began to emerge, without speaking a word
Into something quite different from him
For he usually would start
Where he usually would stop
And then blissfully wade right on through

Still, the ideas unfolded in perfect array
Only hinting at what lay beyond for them
Hidden behind all the logic one finds without truth

I recall how a carnival meeting in late fall
Had brought me together with them
With no real direction, just simple reflection
Of movement as clear as the wind
We both stood there gazing
And not quite believing
Or willing to change points of view

And still, the ideas unfolded in perfect array
Only hinting at what lay beyond them
Hidden behind all the logic one finds without truth

Da da dun
[break]

Down down da doe
Da da down doo da doe
Hmm
Only hinting at what lay beyond them
Hidden behind all the logic one finds without truth

So I’m watching another exceptional flower
Beginning to blossom and grow
As yet, still unspoken, but with more than a token
Reminder of times yet to go
And the frequent suggestion
Is that time is the question
And not so much which one you choose

Still, the ideas unfold in their perfect array
Only hinting at what lay beyond them
Hidden behind all the logic one finds without truth

And the ideas unfold in their perfect array
Only hinting at what lay beyond them
Hidden behind all the logic one finds without truth
Hidden behind all the logic one finds without truth
