Angel of mercy
How did you find me?
Where did you read my story?
Pulled from the papers
Desperate and hardened
Seeking a momentary fix

All I wanted to say
All I wanted to do
Is fall apart now
All I wanted to feel
I wanted to love
It's all my fault now
A tragedy I fear

Angel of mercy
How did you find me?
How did you pick me up again?
Angel of mercy
How did you move me?
Why am I on my feet again?
And I see you
Whoa Whoa Whoa
I feel you
Whoa Whoa Whoa

'Fortress the daylight
Come and I stand by
Waiting to catch the quickest plane
Fly me to nowhere
Is better than somewhere
That's where I've been and nothings changed

All I wanted to say
All I wanted to do
Is fall apart now
All I wanted to feel
I wanted to love
It's all my fault now
A tragedy for sure

Angel of mercy
How did you find me?
How did you pick me up again?
Angel of mercy
How did you move me?
Why am I on my feet again?
And I see you
Whoa Whoa Whoa
I feel you
Whoa Whoa Whoa

I'm so lost in you
A tragedy seemed to be over now, oh now
A tragedy it seemed to be over now

Angel of mercy
How did you find me?
How did you pick me up again?
Angel of mercy
How did you move me?
Why am I on my feet again?
And I see you
Whoa whoa whoa
I feel you
Whoa whoa whoa
I feel you
Oh Whoa whoa whoa
I feel you
Oh Oh Oh

    I would luv marry ryan tedder (leader) but he's way to old. He's an amazing singer and piano player. This song in my opinion means he wanted to just fail but an angel kept saving him for another chance. anyways HAPPY BELATED NEW YEARS EVRY1. HERES MY RESOLUTION TO U ALL. (DIET LESS EAT MORE, SMILE A LITTLE, DON'T WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW LIVE FOR TODAY.)

    Sincerely,

    The ROCK N ROLL QUEEN.

    I'm prob wrong but I feel like this song is about someone saving a guy from drug abuse? The lines "pulled from the paper" and, "seeking a momentary fix" give me that impression.. or how the drug is the "angel of mercy" either way, I love this song :)
