  • Motorcycle's in the parking lot
    Revving their engines and it just won't stop
    Matches the noise screaming in my head
    Houston, I think we got a problem

    Where does everybody go when they go?
    They go so fast, I don't think they know
    We hate so fast and we love too slow
    London, I think we got a problem

    And when I think about it
    I just can't think about it
    I try to drink about it
    I keep spinning

    Ave Mary A, where did you go? Where did you go?
    How did you know to get out of a world gone mad?
    Help me, let go of the chaos around me
    The devil that hounds me, I need you to tell me
    Child, be still, child, be still

    Broken hearts all around the spot
    I can't help thinking that we lost the plot
    Suicide bomber and a student shot
    Tokyo, I think we got a problem

    But for that they have a pill
    If that don't kill you then the side effects will
    If we don't kill eachother then the side effects will
    Cape Town, I think we got a problem

    Ave Mary A, where did you go? Where did you go?
    How did you know to get out of a world gone mad?
    Help me, let go of the chaos around me
    The devil that hounds me, I need you to tell me
    Child, be still

    If the darkest hour comes before the light
    Where is the light? Where is the light?
    If the darkest hour comes before the light
    Where is the light? Where is the light?
    Where is the light? Yeah

    Ave Mary A, where did you go? Where did you go?
    How did you know to get out of a world gone mad?
    Help me, help me, let go of the chaos around me
    The devil that hounds me, I need you to tell me
    Child, be still, child, be still, child be still Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Michael from BrooklynIs there a particular reason that the song is called "Ave Mary A" instead of "Ave Maria"? Beyoncé released a song called "Ave Maria" at around the same time - I've always wondered if that was why P!nk went with "Mary A".
  • Ernesto from Burton-on-trent, United Kingdomit refers to ave maria the mother of god
  • Trina from New York, NyWhoa, I'm surprised no one's made a comment before me...this is an interesting song. I hate that Pink does all these liberal songs, since I don't care about her political opinions, but this was interesting...I'd love to know what "ah-vay mary ah" is.
