You Can't Fail Me Now
I know that fan is moving air, I can see it in your hair But I can't bear to breathe it in somehow I'll rise and fall with you 'cause you can't fail me now I'll rise and fall with you 'cause you can't fail me now Salt is sweet upon my mouth And dark throws sparks against my house The state of love is a smudge on my brow But you see through me and you can't fail me now When you see right through me, you can't fail me now I've bit off more than I can chew It's something that I tend to do When fewer words are what we need and how Oh, you bite my tongue and you can't fail me now I rant and rail but you can't fail me now I've lost the thread among the vines And hung myself in storylines That tell the tales I never would allow God knows the name of every bird That fills my mind like angry words But you know all my secret heart avows We're taught to love the worst of us And mercy more than life but trust me Mercy's just a warning shot across the bow I live for yours and you can't fail me now I live for your mercy, you can't fail me now No, you can't fail me now
