I just needed someone, somebody to hold
When the bottle was empty
And the nights grew cold
In my hour of darkness

In my time of need
You were my angel of mercy
And helped me to believe
You touched my soul

When I was lonely
You held me up
When I couldn't fly
There's no words could explain

How I feel inside
And this I tell you
In a world full of anger
In times gone strange

You held me close
You held me close to you
Lay my head on your shoulder
I finally let it all out

It felt good for a moment
Not living in a shadow of doubt
But everybody needs a little something
To pull them through

I gave one for the other
And God know that the other was you
Now only time will tell
Only time will tell

If our love is scratched in sand
Or if it's etched in stone
Only time will tell
Only time will tell

If our love will stand
Or walk the road alone
My angel of mercy
Pulled me through somehow

I just hope you know
I need you now
You're the one
That touched my very soul

The one who held on tight
God knows you never let go
Now only time will tell
Only time will tell

If our love is scratched in sand
Or if it's etched in stone
Only time will tell
Only time will tell

If our love will stand
Or walk the road alone
Only time will
Only time will

(Can you bring my hands to yours)
Only time will tell
(Can you teach my soul to fly)

Only time will
Only time will
(Can you save me)

Only time will tell
Angel of mercy
It's time we closed the door
Put out the lights

And burn the fire
Burn the fire inside
Angel of mercy
