Mercy pure and simple 
Longing cold and hollow 
With sweet breath you'd come to warm me 
But I held on too hard to only a memory 

You lie there on the swollen ground 
Deserted in your heart 
Still longing for what yesterdays lost 
And for all that tomorrow might bring 
And for all that tomorrow might bring 

The passion lost  taken stolen 
The dreams we had and we shared shattered broken 
With sweet breath you'd come to soothe me 
But I so blind and filled with fear 
Would send you away from me 

There's no hope in regretting now 
All the pain that we could not see 
We both knew what we wanted 
And we took it believing it free 
And we took it believing it free
