A Little Mercy Lyrics

 

The day begins to blur
Under this bruised light
Within the beast still stirs
Am I unfit to guide?
And now I’m weeping towards the sky
For what seeps back into the earth
Are we not supposed to love
In fear of losing someone?
Are we too afraid to feel
Too many wounds to heal?
Will they ever heal?
Will they ever heal?

‘Cause we don’t need this pain and this suffering, no
We don’t need this pain and this suffering, no
Just a little mercy
No
No, no

You cannot live the life
The life left behind you
You cry out loud with all your might
But no one will hear you
There will be desolation
We will throw ourselves into the fire
But the sooner love is gone
The ghosts will begin to haunt
But I know the beauty lies
In the dawn’s early light
Well, It gives and gives in healing waves
But that’s not enough
No, it’s not enough

‘Cause we don’t need this pain and this suffering, no
We don’t need this pain and this suffering, no
Just a little mercy

No
No
Just a little mercy
Just a little mercy
Just a little mercy
