You Can’t Fail Me Now

I 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
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
And you can’t fail me now
You can’t fail me now
