Marian was released in 1985 on The Sisters of Mercy's first album First And Last And Always (album).

There are some demo versions, though, see Marian.

Some of the lyrics were first used for Red Skies Disappear, which also premiered the music of First And Last And Always.

Marian (Version)

First And Last And Always - Album Cover (Front)

In a sea of faces, in a sea of doubt
In this cruel place your voice above the Maelstrom
In the wake of this ship of fools I'm falling further down
If you can see me, Marian, reach out and take me home.....

I hear you calling Marian
Across the water, across the wave
I hear you calling Marian
Can you hear me calling you to
Save me, save me, save me from the

Marian, there's a weight above me
And the pressure is all too strong
To breathe deep
Breathe long and hard
To take the water down and go to sleep
To sink still further
Beneath the fatal wave
Marian I think I'm drowning
This sea is killing me

CHORUS Transcription
Was ich kann und was ich könnte What I can and what I could do
Weiss ich gar nicht mehr I don't know it anymore
Gib mir wieder etwas Schönes Give me something beautiful again
Zieh mich aus dem Meer Drag me from the sea
Ich höre dich rufen, Marian I hear you calling, Marian
Kannst du mich schreien hören? Can you hear me screaming?
Ich bin hier allein I am here alone
Ich höre dich rufen, Marian I hear you calling, Marian
Ohne deine Hilfe verliere ich mich in diesem Ort      Without your help, I lose myself within this place

(repeat Marian 'til end)
