Marion's Daze - Song Lyrics from the 90s

I wrote this song while I was in the band Marion Daze. I felt that the band needed a title song but really this just popped into my head and then I guess it took that roll. Marion was the girlfriend of the guitarist and she was lovely. It is sort of a tribute to her mixed with a bit of fantasy. While the band was together, we lived in the same building on 13th street between Avenue A & B. It was a walk up that was extremely hot in the summer. Ohad and Marion's flat had brick walls which was nicer than mine. We all had to leave when they sold the building. I then moved to the West Village while Ohad scored a typical NY flat around the corner from Saint Marks Place. Rent was cheap back then and affordable to artists like us. 

Marion's Daze
By Julie Gengo and Ohad Varsano

It could be summer 
The sky is so clear
Beauty surrounds her
She loosens the fears

Any place or time 
Just follow her
It doesn't matter 
How or when 

Warm breezes and pleasures
The clouds are drifting 
It's all in a whisper 
She's captivating

Any place or time 
Just follow her
It doesn't matter 
How or when 

The rhythm and the rhyme 
Will comfort you
Slowly softly slip away

Oh Marion's, Marion's daze
Oh Marion's, Marion's daze

No need to surrender
She asks for nothing 
Her touch is forever
Freedom from rushing 

Any place or time 
Just follow her
It doesn't matter 
How or when 

The rhythm and the rhyme 
Will comfort you
Slowly softly slip away

Oh Marion's, Marion's daze
Oh Marion's, Marion's daze
