Lord, have mercy
On me, a sinner
Lord, please believe
In my heart, I’m good

Lord, can’t you see
That I know I should


Mom, have mercy
On me, a son
Mom, please believe
I don’t want to scare you 

Mom, can’t you see
That I struggle too


Dear, have mercy
On me, your partner
Dear, please believe
I still love you the most

Dear, can’t you see
That right now I’m lost


Friend, have mercy
On me, a fool
Friend, please believe
I can still make it right

Friend, can’t you see
I don’t want to fight


Lord, have mercy
On me, the dying
Lord, please believe

I gave it my all
Lord, can’t you see
All I can do is crawl
