"Mary's Prayer" written by Gary Clark (Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Co/BMI) performed by Rob Lamothe, recorded live at Java Joe's, San Diego, California, USA 01/21/01

lyrics

everything is wonderful
being here is heavenly
every single day she says
everything is free

used to be so careless
as if i couldn’t care less
what i wouldn’t give to be
when i was mary’s prayer

suddenly the heavens roll
suddenly the rain came down
suddenly was washed away
the mary that I knew

so if you find somebody you keep
think of me and celebrate
i made such a big mistake
when i was mary’s prayer

blessed is the one who shares
your power and your beauty mary
blessed is the millionaire
who shares your wedding day

so if you find somebody you keep
think of me and celebrate
i made such a big mistake
when i was mary’s prayer

if you want the fruit to fall
you have to give the tree a shake
if you shake the tree too hard
the bough is gonna break
if I can reach the top of the tree
mary will you pull me up there
what i wouldn’t give to be
i was mary’s prayer
what i wouldn’t give to be
when i was mary’s prayer
did i have to make this face
i was mary’s prayer

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
