Track Name: Mercy
Alone sits a man with his face in his hands
And he's saying Mercy
I need Mercy I need
He only longs to right all his wrongs
And he's saying Mercy
I need Mercy I need

But I don't know how to get it
Because there's no left to give it
And I don't know how to fix it
So I got to keep on asking
For Mercy
Mercy for me

A woman in black spreading ashes down a path
She mutters Mercy
I need Mercy I need
She lies in a bed of words she left unsaid
Now she's saying Mercy
I need Mercy I need

But I don't know how to get it
Because there's no left to give it
And I don't know how to fix it
So I got to keep on asking
For Mercy
Mercy for me

A man walks a path that was sprinkled with ash
And he's thinking Mercy, Mercy, Mercy I need
Sees a woman in black with cloudy eyes
And as they pass she's saying Mercy, Mercy, Mercy I need

But I don't know how to get it
Because there's no left to give it
And I don't know how to fix it
So I got to keep on asking
For Mercy
Mercy for me
Track Name: Happy Ending
The light flickers and she whispers
Why should we go on?
Seems like the more we try
The more that we lose sight of what we wanted all along
Are we blind or can we see
how the future will unfold?
If I am there for you, will you be there for me
When the decades take their toll?

Because only a fool could believe in a Happy Ending
Believe that life could play out like on the silver screen
Only a fool could believe in a Happy Ending
But I'm foolish enough to believe
In a Happy Ending

He replied, I can't decide why we should take this chance
Why lay ourselves out bare in the open air
Of love and happenstance?
We have both been hurt before
Have carried broken souls
So why do we believe
This time we will be the ones in control?

Because only a fool could believe in a Happy Ending
Believe that life could play out like on the silver screen
Only a fool could believe in a Happy Ending
But I'm foolish enough to believe
In a Happy Ending

Only a fool could believe in a Happy Ending
Believe that life could play out like on the silver screen
Only a fool could believe in a Happy Ending
But I'm foolish enough to believe
You and I have a story with a Happy Ending
You and I have a story with a Happy Ending
You and I have a story with a Happy Ending
You and I have a story with a Happy Ending
