lyrics

Maria, Maria,
Been so long since I’ve seen you.
Maria, Maria,
Been so long since you’ve heard my voice.
And I don’t quite know how to
Tell you what I must tell you.
Maria, Maria,
You haven’t heard from me in so long.

Maria, Maria,
Tell me, how was Seville?
Maria, Maria,
Tell me, how was Rome?
Were the boys there so pretty;
Did you feel wanted and witty?
Maria, Maria,
When are you coming home?

Dancing lights behind your eyes
Blind me; they hypnotize
They remind me
That you light up my skies;
They remind me
Don’t wanna break these ties—
Shining words and astral highs
Can’t take you up beyond goodbye, but
Why would I want to say goodbye?
I don’t know why I want to say goodbye.

Maria, Maria,
Please explain what I’ve heard.
Maria, Maria,
I swear I didn’t swallow a word.
I just kept walking on,
Past lines of right and wrong.
I thought that I did it for you,
But the promise I broke was to me.

Dancing lights behind your eyes
Blind me; they hypnotize
They remind me
That you light up my skies;
They remind me
Don’t wanna break these ties—
Shining words and astral highs
Can’t take you up beyond goodbye, but
Why would I want to say goodbye?
I don’t know why I want to say goodbye.
