Lyrics

Have Mercy

Standing at the crossroads as a storm is closing in
Struggling with my demons, trying to make amends
Drinking with desire, drowning in the pain
As she turned & whispered, let love lead the way
I said, my emotions run like rivers through my head
The voices that are calling out underneath my bed
Echo on the wings of dirty angels without names
Love’s the only reason I’m sittin’ here today

So, quit pullin’ my chain shakin’ my tree
You can’t show me the light if I don’t want to see
I know that I’m my own worst enemy
So have mercy, have mercy on me

Sometimes it ain’t funny but I have the tendency
To take a situation all the way to the extreme
It ain’t killed me yet but tomorrows another day
She whispered to me again, let love lead the way
I realize that life is full of the thick and the thin
I know there are people that’ll love me to the end
But right now I’m gonna wallow in my pain
Cuz’ love’s the only reason I’m feeling this way

So, quit pullin’ my chain shakin’ my tree
You can’t show me the light if I don’t want to see
I know that I’m my own worst enemy
So have mercy, have mercy on me…
Have mercy, have mercy on me

So, quit pullin’ my chain shakin’ my tree
You can’t show me the light if I don’t want to see
I know that I’m my own worst enemy
So have mercy, have mercy on me…
Have mercy, have mercy on me

So, quit pullin’ my chain shakin’ my tree
You can’t show me the light if I don’t want to see
Just give me a smoke or buy me a drink
So have mercy, have mercy on me…
Have mercy, have mercy on me
So have mercy, have mercy on me…
Have mercy, have mercy on me
