Hazard  -  (Richard Marx cover)

It was the 14th best-selling single of 1992 in the UK. "Hazard" tells the story of an implied relationship of some kind between Marx's character (usually considered the protagonist) and a woman named Mary.

Marx, however, maintains his innocence throughout the song, and the question of such is left open to the listener's interpretation.
