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 stain of love's a smudge on my brow
But you see through me and you can't fail me now
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
You bite my tongue, 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 story lines
That tell the tales I never would allow
God knows the name of every bird
It 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
You can't fail me now
