Amen
Last night I had a dream
The dream I had was true
I fell through the stars
... Went walking on the moon
Burned like a thousand candles in her arms

The skin under my finger tips
Honeysuckle on her lips
Sweeter than a man deserves to taste
Mercy, mercy, what else can I say?

But Amen. Amen

Last night we were born together
It was like we'd always been
She'll be with me forever
If I don't see her again
We poured the wine until our cup ran over

Unfolding like the mystery
Inside of her like poetry
A thousand horses running through my veins
Mercy, mercy what else can I say

But Amen, Amen

I laid down in her garden
Naked on her floor
Windows up, the curtains blowing
She don't lock the door

Amen, Amen

At the banquet table
A beggar at a feast
I felt her tongue between her lips
And I forgot to breath
We stayed there 'til the candles burned the carpet

Last night I had a dream
The dream I had was true
Mercy, mercy, what else can I say
Mercy, mercy, I laid down and prayed

    The first time I heard this song I had to think about Jon's daughter and the drugs. To me it meant being thankful for everything. For all the things you have in life. So for Jon it would maybe be having his family and getting his daughter the help she needs. Not just being thankful for big things like banquets but also the smaller things like the lips of the woman he loves. That's what I think. And when ever I listen to it I am reminded to be thankful. Just my opinion.
