MARY

Mary sat on the city bridge, arms outstretched, feeling for footsteps
Crutches by her side as the people walk on by.
Mary said she was cold, and hadn't eaten in days
Cried so loud, so so loud, as the people walked away.

You don't know, she said, you don't know how lucky you are
No, you don't know, you don't know how lucky you are.

Mary thought last night at the shelter felt a hundred years long.
Old fat Meg pulled hair from her head and
When she woke her man was gone.
Mary pulled my hand towards her and talked between the tears
'Nobody cares if I live or die, no-one’s seen me in years.'

You don't know, she said, you don't know how lucky you are
No, you don't know, you don't know how lucky you are.

Mary how did you get so lost?
Mary where did it all go wrong?
Mary please don't get drunk tonight!
Mary don't give up the fight!

You don't know, you don't know how lucky you are
and the, people walking on by
they don't know how lucky they are
and it could be you or I
We don't know how lucky we are
We don't know, we don't know how lucky we are.
She said 'You don't know, you don't know how lucky you are. No’
