The Gaslight Anthem – Have Mercy lyrics

[Verse:]
Come pick me up from the night
From the hands of the dark
From the things I didn't know
That would simply break your heart
There were years in this room
Lined and shattered in the glass
Held it up to myself till I just couldn't stand

[Chorus:]
So don't ask me where I've been cause you don't want to know
And don't ask me who I'm seeing, no, you don't want to know
And don't come around me here when I need you the most
Leave it alone, leave a little room for the holy ghost

[Verse 2:]
And come take me out of the light
I don't feel you anymore
I came apart from myself
And from the crosses you wore
And the things in my soul
Once my comforting friend
I came to the reasons
And I lost you again

[Chorus:]
So don't ask me where I've been cause you don't want to know
And don't ask me who I'm seeing, no, you don't want to know
And don't come around me here when I need you the most
Leave it alone, leave a little room for the holy ghost

(Bridge x4)
Now your pretty horses run wild and free
You can go and find a lover, baby, better than me
Talking slow for days with your friends in L. A.
Have mercy
