Jack Garratt - Mara lyrics

[Verse 1]
I came to be here in the garden
I came to walk alone
To hear the quiet conversation between my footsteps and the stone

I came to find some self acceptance
I came searching for my truth
But something's telling me to go where it's far too dark to look

[Chorus]
Oh, I can see you Mara
I see you standing there
You're with me in the dark
I hear your questions in the air
Oh, Mara, why do you stand there?

[Verse 2]
You have come here in the silence
In the breath between the rain
The storm distorts the garden's beauty and leaves me wondering again

Distracting you is not the answer
If the question you relay, is not how to design something
But why build it anyway?

[Chorus]
Oh, I can see you Mara
I see you standing there
You're with me in the dark
Your questions working through the air
Oh, Mara, why do you stand there?

[Instrumental Break]

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, Mara, why do you stand there?

[Verse 3]
Have you come here weak and hungry
To feed upon the scraps?
Do you sit patient in the bushes waiting to attack?

But I won't stomp my feet in anger, no
Or beat upon my chest
Instead, I ask that you allow me to talk with you instead

[Chorus]
Oh, I can see you Mara
I see you standing there
You're with me in the dark
I'll pull your questions from the air
Oh, Mara, why do you stand there?
