Strange Mercy

Album: Strange Mercy (2011)
  • Oh little one I know you've been tired for a long, long time
    And oh little one I ain't been around for a little while
    But when you see me, wait

    Oh little one your Hemingway jawline looks just like his
    Our father in exile
    For God only knows how many years
    But when you see him, wait
    Through double pain
    I'll be with you lost boys
    Sneaking out where the shivers won't find you

    Oh little one I'd tell you good news that I don't believe
    If it would help you sleep
    Strange mercy

    If I ever meet the dirty policeman who roughed you up
    No I, I don't know what
    If I ever meet the dirty policeman who roughed you up

    I'll be with you lost boys
    Sneaking out where the shivers won't find youWriter/s: Anne Clark
