Dido – Mary’s In India Free Audio Download
“Mary’s In India” is the fourth track on Dido’s second album, Life For Rent.
At the Brixton Academy concert, Dido introduced the song saying that it was initially inspired by an autobiographical event, but then “it took on a life of its own”.
My best friend’s called Mary – she’s actually here – and this song started as a little song cause I missed her so much when she went to India, and I’m afraid it took on a life of its own. I’m sorry! And if it was true, I would be a total bitch. So I’m proud to say, it’s not true!
“Mary’s In India Lyrics”
Danny is lonely cause Mary’s in India now
She said she’d call, but that was three weeks ago
She left all her things, well, her books and her letters from him
As the sun rises on Mary, it sets on him
Danny’s not eating, he’s drinking and sleeping in
I saw him last night at a party, he’s definitely thin
He says he’s happy, he looked pretty good but I think
That as the sun rises on Mary, it sets on him
Danny came over last night and I cooked for him
We talked about you, Mary, and how much we loved you still
He told me he’s packed up your books and your letters and things
As the sun sets on Mary, it’s rising on him
Don’t worry, Mary, cause I’m taking care of Danny
And he’s taking care of me
