V: WEDDING. A few years later. As Shanty muses on the top of a bus, Mary Dee is drawn to him. She soothes his self-doubts and calms his impatient ambitions and they pledge their love and marry.“Liverpool Oratorio” liner notes

I should be glad of this
For to be thankful is
That you will still be here,
The time is drawing near
For us to know.
MARY DEE (no longer as a ghost)
I'll always be here
As long as you've got time for me.
Whether it's joy or sadness,
It doesn't matter -
As long as you have time for me,
We will be together.
That to be thankful is
Not what I need, but just for right now
It's all I've got.
I know that patience is a virtue.
But at this time in my life
I need something more.
Something in the air
Is slowly drawing us together.
And believe in something more.
If I could sit still,
It I could be courageous.
I have a feeling that there's something
Drawing us inevitably towards it.
If you have patience,
You needn't wait for ever.
This is the story that they tell the children
Who are always asking the question.
Someone is making sense.
We have a common sense.
