"Sweet Mary"
"Get Right"

"Sweet Mary" is the seventh track from Pacific Daydream, released on October 27th, 2017.


An October 2017 NPR interview with Rivers suggested that the titular "Mary" could be referring to the Virgin Mary. Rivers noted that his interest in Catholicism may stem from the Catholic roots of his Italian family.


When I am all on my own
One foot is in the grave
My sweet Mary comes
To help me to find my way
So I give her my thanks
I don't know what I would do
Without my sweet Mary love
To help me to make it through

The ghosts come out at nighttime
I hear the rumble of thunder
Flashes of light do follow her
Where'er she goes so pretty
But I will never ever touch her
‘Cause if I did she might die
I just smile and look on
As she leads me to the wondrous sights

What did I do to deserve this
Give my life to a tiger
Give my last food and water to a strange wayfarer
I'm so blessed in this life
I want to show my gratitude
She is so beautiful when she flies
I want to see her fly away

Who is she?
I want to know
My heart is stolen
