  • Dear Marie, tell me what it was I used to be
    Dear Marie, tell me what it was I used to be
    And if you're further up the road can you show me what I still can't see.

    Remember me, I'm the boy you used to love when we were fifteen
    Remember me, I'm the boy you used to love when we were fifteen
    Now I wonder what you think when you see me on the magazine.

    From time to time, I go looking for your photograph online
    From time to time, I go looking for your photograph online
    Some county judge in Ohio is all I ever find.

    Dear Marie, tell me do you still believe in me
    Dear Marie, tell me do you still believe in me
    Yeah I've got my dream but you've got family
    Yeah I've got my dream but you've got family
    Yeah I've got my dream but I guess it got away from me
