Marie is heading out,
To California, I tried to warn you.
She's heading towards the coast.
She's tired of living here,
This awful city, and what a pity,
The things she needs the most.

Turn around for me

Roll the dice,
Baby on your knees you keep falling
Maybe you should roll the dice for me.
Roll the dice,
'Cause baby on your heels you keep turning
Maybe you should roll the dice for me.
Turn around Marie.

There's nobody to blame.
There's no politics and hypocrites,
And I know I'm the same.
If we compromise,
We may realise, I'll apologise,
I know your pain.

Turn around for me

Waiting on Marie to call,
To turn around, turn around
Waiting for Marie to call my bluff

All your fingers crossed,
You can cry and bawl, but you can't ignore her,
Regardless of the cost.
Just another day,
Let me have my say and I'll change your ways,
Everything's not lost.
