lyrics

Clouds of Mercy

well it's the greatest single moment of your life
but there is just one hitch
the woman you've just taken for a wife
well she's the wicked witch
now with a bottle and a broom
she'll leave your whole damn life in ruin
and you know I'm going to help you if I can
but I am just one man

as the horseshoe goes rolling through the grass
well you were almost right
you thought that you had something that would last
and that was just last night
now with a hammer and a nail
you're built your own courthouse and jail
and you know that I would try to get you out
if I could free myself
clouds of mercy
hover like a hand held over a hole
while old new jersey
is steaming like a road kill on the road

well there's a little piece of cupcake in your hair
and the sky is blue
you know it makes me want to touch your hair
but that would never do
now with my lies and your teasing
it's like one two three and now we're even
and maybe in another lucky life
well we could try that out

clouds of mercy
hover like a hand held over a hole
while old new jersey
is smoking like a road kill on the road
clouds of mercy
hover like a hand held over a hole
while old new jersey
is bleeding like a road kill in the snow
in the snow
