Mary Ann Yerrell
you’re not to blame
When Tom passed on
it doused your flame

Back when TB
could not be stopped
At thirty-seven
your soul mate dropped
Six mouths to feed
and nothing for rent
Hard to survive
when everything’s spent
Shoreditch girl
in an East End world
you’re the reason
I’m right here
In this song’s
where you belong
so you’ll never
disappear
Mary Ann Yerrell
you're not to blame
All you asked
was he keep his name
Your two-year old
a foster child
Walls turned in
when the Devil smiled

Your husband gone
your youngest too
The hopelessness
just grew and grew

Shoreditch girl
in an East End world
you’re the reason
I’m right here
In this song’s
where you belong
so you’ll never
disappear

There’s always something
we reach for
high up in the sky
Always someplace
we can’t forget
no matter how we try
And always someone
we cling to
when it’s time to die

Mary Ann Yerrell
you’re not to blame
The Hell on Earth
drove you insane
You cared too much
your world went black
No one knew
you’d not be back

The River Thames’
an icy grave
Takes a dark soul
to be that brave

Shoreditch girl
in an East End world
you’re the reason
I’m right here
In this song’s
where you belong
so you’ll never
disappear

It all took place
a long time ago
Got bits and pieces
but too young to know

You bent over backwards
buckled from the load
Couldn’t help dying for
a less bumpy road

The world’s bipolar
in need of help soon
But it does no good
to howl at the moon

How the heck we got here
is way out of reach
A haunting find
like bones on a beach

Mary Ann Yerrell
the Shoreditch girl
you’re the reason
I’m right here
In this song’s
where you belong
so you’ll never
disappear

High tide, low tide
no place to hide
the River Thames
is deep and wide

High tide, low tide
heartache inside
the River Thames
helped you decide

High tide, low tide
no place to hide
the River Thames
is deep and wide

High tide, low tide
heartache inside
the River Thames
helped you decide
