Mercy

Mercy - pure and simple
Longing - cold and hollow

with sweet breath
you'd come to warm me
but I held on too hard
to only a memory

You lie there
on the swollen ground
deserted in your heart

Still longing for what
yesterdays lost
and for all that tomorrow
might bring
and for all that tomorrow
might bring

The passion lost - taken stolen
The dreams we had
and we shared - shattered broken

with kind words
you'd come to soothe me
but I so blind
and filled with fear
would send you
away from me

There's no hope
in regretting now
all the pain
that we could not see

We both knew what we wanted
and we took it believing it free
and we took it believing it free
