-- Marianne Was Tired --
Marianne was tired, on a Wednesday morning
Was she really dreaming these alarms going off in her head?
Try to tell these troubles, to a fortune teller
She forgets to mention, she knows who you are, where you’ve been
Ooooooh, Marianne ...

She had joined a circus, as a bareback rider,
And she wore a costume, of silver, and sequins, and gold

Acrobatic dancing, while the horns were playing,
And the crowds were cheering, as she circled, again, and again,
in her silver & sequins and gold

Ooooooh, Marianne, Marianne ...

A handstand, then an arabesque, in the spotlights red and blue
She comes down in a falling wave, Hold on tight, Marianne

Marianne was nervous, she began to worry
Marianne was tired / Marianne was tired

Lianne Smith New York

I write songs about standing in the middle of the road and wondering which way to go, about how others cheat us and how we cheat ourselves, about free-wheeling, bicycle riding, look-ma-no-hands exhilarations, and how it feels to say goodbye to summer.
