Running From Mercy
by Rickie Lee Jones



Oh sacred place that sets my soul alive
There's a rainbow above me that the storm clouds hide
And kind works will never die
'cause the magic in kindness springs from the love, love, love
Little acts of kindness and little words of love

Make our earthly home heaven above
And there is no sorrow heaven cannot heal
A fire within, no cross, no crown
Running from mercy, hidden and coy
Swimming upstream down oceans of joy
Die in the arms of a natural life

Waking our happiness drowning in light
Waking our happiness drowning in light
Little acts of kindness, little words of love
Make our earthly home like heaven above

And there is no sorrow heaven cannot heal
A fire within, no cross, no crown
This thing would end up on the wind
Slow to stop our ways sing

You, you wake up!, come on boy, come on little boy
Don't you stop her, don't you stop her
There's that door
I've got that door
I know where that door is
Just follow me and you wake up
Come on with me girl
Tomorrow
