Looking For Mercy

lyrics

Looking for Mercy © 2019 Julie Christensen

Thought I found a shred
Of something positive in there
Followed down some tangled thread
And lost cause or will to care

I’ve got to put it down
Try not to pick it up again
Get my feet back on the ground
Start up a song, Call up a friend

I’m looking for the quality of mercy
On a screen with light behind it
Looking for a little bit of mercy
And I don’t believe I’ll find it
Today

I get blue in the face
From singing so loud to the choir
The entire human race
Has disconnected from the wire

Don’t even know what’s fake
Or where our ❤️s are s’posed to be
Please put it away
And hold my hand and talk to me!

I’m looking for the quality of mercy
On a screen with light behind it
Looking for a little bit of mercy
And I don’t believe I’ll find it
Today Not Today Not Today Not Today

I’m looking for the quality of mercy
On a screen with light behind it
Looking for a little bit of mercy
And I don’t believe I’ll find it
Today
