NEEMA LYRICS

Mercy

have mercy on my mind
too wild to tame, too tired to train
have mercy on my brain

there it goes again
twirling, spinning like the ball on the pen
running in circles, flipping through hoops
like the prize acrobat of the circus troop

have mercy on my mind
lately it goes blank I forget my lines
I stand there with eyes focused on me
and a blank memory

mercy by land, mercy by sea
mercy through fire and through the breeze
mercy from stronghold as mercy for peace
may you have mercy on me
may you have mercy on me

have mercy on my heart
feeling so battered and torn apart
defeated from the start

embittered and aching
terrified of breaking
wandering restlessly in search of a home
like a frantic child in a crowd alone

have mercy on my heart
flippantly stumbling through the dark
wants to love, driven to flee

mercy by land, mercy by sea
mercy through fire and through the breeze
mercy from stronghold as mercy for peace
may you have mercy on me
may you have mercy on me

have mercy on my soul
years of neglect have taken their toll
have mercy on us all

it’s elusive to reach
but constantly here with so much to teach
always in conflict but deeply at ease
in a sea of peace

have mercy on my soul
confined to a cage like a raging wolf
but needs to be free

mercy by land, mercy by sea
mercy through fire and through the breeze
mercy from stronghold as mercy for peace
may you have mercy on me

mercy on children beginning the dream
mercy on twilight, as midnight comes clean
through all the wreckage, i’m down on my knees
may you have mercy on me
may you have mercy on me
may you have mercy on me
