mercy lyrics – dave matthews band

mercy

don’t give up
i know you can see
all the world and the mess that we’re making
can’t give up
and hope god will intercede
come on back
imagine that we could get it together
stand up for what we need to be
‘cause crime won’t save or feed a hungry child
can’t lay down and wait for a miracle to change things
so lift up your eyes
lift up your heart

singing mercy will we overcome this
oh one by one could we turn it around
maybe carry on just a little bit longer
and i’ll try to give you what you need

me and you and you and you
just wanna be free yeah
but you see all the world is just as we’ve made it
and until we got a new world
i’ve got to say that love is not a whisper or a weakness

no love is strong
so we got to get together yeah
gotta get gotta get gotta get
til there is no reason
to fight

mercy will we overcome this
yeah one by one could we turn it around
maybe carry on just a little bit longer
and i’ll try to give you what you need

mercy will we overcome this
have we come too far to turn it around
ask too much to be a little bit stronger
cause i wanna give you what you need

mercy what will become of us
oh one by one could we turn it around
maybe carry on just a little bit longer
and i’ll try to give you what you need
