Melissa Etheridge – Mercy lyrics

Well I have lived ten years plus ten
And ten and ten again
I have seen too much to pretend
And then you wanted to come in
I have survived all of the lies
They made me wise
The locks and walls and the peace it buys
Still when I look into your eyes
It's a surprise when you say

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away

What do you want from me
Mercy, mercy baby
What do you want from me

Well I plead Mercy, mercy baby
I do not know what this all means
It's been awhile
Since I've been stylin' in
Just my jacket and my jeans

It hurts to walk
It hurts to talk
It hurts to think about it
Shout about it
Could I be sure without a doubt
That you could never live without

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away
Mercy baby
What do you want from me
Mercy, mercy, mercy baby
What do you want from me

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away
I want to fall in you
Crawl in you
Surrender
All in you now

Could I be sure in you
Pure in you
Finding the cure in you
Now I plead
Have mercy on me

Now I am kneeling at the altar
In the temple of your eyes
And I am asking for a miracle
I have been too long paralyzed when you say

Get up
Stand up
Climb the rope of hope
And open up again

All the peace you say is promised me
Seems too much to comprehend

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away
Mercy baby
What do you want from me
Mercy, mercy baby
What Can this girl believe

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Honey just hold on tight
And I'll make it all go away
Hold on

It's gonna be alright
Mercy darling
Mercy
Let it all go away
