about

Mary McGuire Mackinac Island, Michigan

Growing up in 70's Detroit and learning from the radio jocks of America's first underground radio stations was all it took for Mary to pick up the guitar and learn her first Beatles, Neil Young, Eagles and Led Zeppelin tunes. Once she started, her appetite for acoustic rock guitar was fueled. ... more

Track Name: I Believed
I Believed

lyrics & music by Mary McGuire
Oh, I never thought I’d write a sad song to you
Oh, I believed
And I was wrong when I thought our love, would beat all the odds
Oh, I believed
And now I cry you away, I let my tears wash my pain away I’m dazed
I can’t count how many times, I just keep on writing sad songs of love gone wrong
And I, thought our love was strong, but now the vows are all broken
Oh, I believed
Oh, I believed
Oh, I believed
Track Name: Song Without Words
Song Without Words
lyrics & music by Johnny Bee Badanjek

There’s no reason why I’m here,
Empty feeling’s guide my fears.
I’m not a puppet you can just pull a string,
When you need someone to dance or to sing.
I wanna tell you, It’s a crazy world,
I wanna tell you, It’s like a song’s without words.
What keeps us together, tears us apart,
All my illusions shattered in the dark.
All my friend’s say that I’m just a fool,
Wastin’ my time with someone like you.
I wanna tell you, It’s a crazy world,
I wanna tell you, It’s like a song’s without words.
Sunny morning’s all turn black,
I’m like a fat fly bumpin’ into glass.
Now I lie in the dark all confused,
Watchin’ the star’s go around the moon.
I wanna tell you, It’s a crazy world.
I wanna tell you, It’s like a song’s without words.
Track Name: Better Than Me
Better Than Me
lyrics & music by Mary McGuire & Erik Gustafson

Assassin’s Grip
Pissed off stance
I better get out fast
I would rather lose my uniform than my integrity
I have a right to my own free will
What makes you better than me?
Dark, so deep
Dragged me down fast
I better hit my path
I would rather lose my kindness than my sanity
I have a right to my own free will
What makes you better than me?
Damaged soul
Self inflicted pain
I better save myself
I would rather lose my blood than stay here one more day with you
I have a right to my own free will
What makes you better than me?
Track Name: Love Struck
Love Struck
lyrics & music by Mary McGuire

Romantic love-obsessed
A free fall- no net
Lovestruck, can’t sleep...oooh
Passion-desire-Unquenched
Sweet Interludes-encouragement
Lovestruck, can’t sleep...oooh
Realize- truth
Realize-see
Realize-awake
Realize-admit
Lovestruck, can’t sleep...oooh
Nowhere to hide
Starry eyed talks
Tender exchanges dare
Lingering thoughts
Lovestruck, can’t sleep...oooh
One day they’ll kiss
No turning back
Track Name: TV On
TV On
lyrics & music by Mary McGuire

TV on stereo cranked up
Achievements stashed on his closet shelf
TV on stereo cranked up
He was more focused, more direct
Full of wrath, full of pride
Envy was his greed
TV on stereo cranked up
He sucked my talent, bled me dry
TV on stereo cranked up
Called me ugly made me cry
Full of avarice, full of lust
Addiction, his gluttony
TV on stereo cranked up
The death of a sinner
weighs the blackened soul
His judgment is coming
He’ll boil in his pot of gold
The death of this sinner
The devil brings me down
My judgement is coming
Track Name: Tell Me Robert
Tell Me Robert
lyrics & music by Mary McGuire

We talk about love, we talk about hate
We talk about the lines on the old man’s face
We talk to the mirror, do we like what we see?
We talk to a stranger, hey, what does he believe
So tell me Robert, what’s going on?
Pass out your thoughts, you know you’re so strong
So help me Jesus, I don’t belong
The businessman’s eating while the gypsy’s bleeding
The military’s lasting while the prophet’s fasting
The wars are raging while your water’s fading
The earth is dying, hear your baby crying
The world is turning and the people aren’t learning
We talk about love, we talk about hate
We talk about the lines on our face
We talk to the mirror, do we like what we hear?
We talk to a stranger, hey, doesn’t he live here?
So tell me Robert, what’s on your mind?
Pass out your thoughts, you know you’re so kind
So tell me Jesus, how long’s the line? Am I doing fine?
We talk about love, we talk about love, we talk about love, we talk about hate
Track Name: Welfare State
Welfare State
lyrics & music by Mary McGuire

Workin’ in a club in this welfare state
Lookin’ at the suits and expensive plates
Making reservations, hearing them too
Thinkin’ hesitation, what about you?
The homeless man’s across the street, the Cadillacs in their beautiful fleet
Working in a club in this blue-collar land
All the guys wear jeans and they all slap hands
Making contradictions, feeling them too
Thinkin’ pessimism, what about you?
The homeless man’s across the street, my pickup truck can take the heat
Working in this afterhours joint
Wearing black leather, singing doit, doit, doit
Making wishes, but they never come true
Thinkin’ ‘bout welfare, what about you?
The homeless man’s across the street, the taxi cab is my royal fleet

Song Without Words (acoustic)

There’s no reason why I’m here,
Empty feeling’s guide my fears.
I’m not a puppet you can just pull a string,
When you need someone to dance or to sing.
I wanna tell you, It’s a crazy world,
I wanna tell you, It’s like a song’s without words.
What keeps us together, Tears us apart,
All my illusions shattered in the dark.
All my friend’s say that I’m just a fool,
Wastin’ my time with someone like you.
I wanna tell you, It’s a crazy world,
I wanna tell you, It’s like a song’s without words.
Sunny morning’s all turn black,
I’m like a fat fly bumpin’ into glass.
Now I lie in the dark all confused,
Watchin’ the star’s go around the moon.
I wanna tell you, It’s a crazy world.
I wanna tell you, It’s like a song’s without words.
