Cry Mercy Sister

I don’t wanna crawl

After you anymore,

I held you like a rose,

But you cut me like a thorn,

Gee yeah – that’s fine,

I’ll forget you in time,

If you stop sending me letters,

With a razor between the lines,

And the big wheel keeps on turning,

Keeps spinning round and round,

But deep down in this corner of me heart,

I keep wshing, you would just get out.


Cry mercy sister,

You act pretty tough

Cry mercy sister,

Get going, I’ve had enough

Cry mercy sister.

Baby you keep saying

That we’ve gotta give it time,

But you don’t seem aware

That I’m way past caring,

And I’m slowly goin’ out of my mind,

You go chitter-chatter, chitter-chatter

Baby does it really matter?

You’ve got amouth,

Bigger than the Opera House,

The front door keeps on slamming

These hands keep pushing me away,

And deep down in this corner of my heart,

I keep wishing for a brand new day
