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
Has fallen 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
And I feel you, whoa

Fortress of daylight, caught me on standby
Waiting to catch the quickest plane
Fly me to nowhere, it's better than somewhere
That’s where I’ve been and nothing’s changed

All I wanted to say, all I wanted to do
Has fallen 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
And I feel you, whoa

I'm so lost in you
A tragedy it seemed to be, but what now?
What now?
A tragedy it seemed to be, but what 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
And I feel you, whoa
I feel you, whoa
I feel you, whoa
