Mercy Lyrics - U2

Review The Song (5)



I was drinking some wine... and it turned to blood
What's the use of religion... if you're any good
I know i'm weedkiller honey... and you're sugar
If you're the prosecution... i get away with murder
If you were ice... i'm water
And with your telescope... i can see further
We're binary code... a one and a zero
You wanted violins... and you got nero
You're gravity... searching for the ground
You're silence... searching for a sound
Your heart is aching... your heart is my home
It's fascinating... i know i'll never be alone
When I was ripping the stitches
Without two hands to rub
I'm digging the ditches
Of someone else's luck
sponsored links
Love hears when i lie
Love puts the blue back in my eye
Love will come again
I'll be gone again... again
If you're hunger... baby let me feed it
If your heart is full... baby let me bleed it
And happiness is for... those who don't really need it
You love me... too much
You always loved me... too much
When I was ripping the stitches
Without two hands to rub
I'm digging the ditches
Of someone else's luck
Love hears when i lie
Love puts the blue back in my eye
Love has come again
I am gone again
Love's got to be with the weak
Only then love gets a chance to speak
Love will come again
I'll be gone again... again
I... i can't escape myself
I hear you talk
Feeling nothing
I fear nothing
Feel....
I can hear so much
Fear nothing
I feel so much
Fear... nothing
Love has come again
I am gone again
Love is the end of history
The enemy of misery
Love has come again
I am gone again
Love is justice, not charity
Love brings with it a clarity
Love has come again
I'm alive again
Alive...
I am alive, baby i'm born again and again
And again, and again and again and again
Again

I love how this song builds up. It kind of sounds a wee little bit similiar to Miracle Drug, maybe why they left it off HTDAAB? I think this is why the 'Always' b-side was left off of ATYCLB, sounded a lot like Beautiful Day. But who knows. I think the song drones on a bit too long and the lyrics could be trimmed a bit but otherwise I agree that this is a lot better then most of what was on their last 2 albums. I find it weird what they leave off albums sometimes. I think Xanax and Wine OR Fast Cars would have been great additions to HTDAAB, and I would have loved Native Son to have replaced Vertigo, although I know a song about the plight of a Native American activist probably wouldn't have sold as many I-Pods as Vertigo.



Bono Knew | Reviewer: mkay | 2/24/09

Bono knew the song was leaked. He may not have known at the start of the last tour, but he knew no later than 2nd date of the tour and he was asked about playing it live on several occasions.

Why they didn't put it on the album is a mystery. It's better than the vast majority of the last 2 albums.



Pure greatness | Reviewer: graham williams | 8/3/08

The song is a ulimate song, as bono can create a lyric with so much meaning, one has been a classic now for so long and mercy may become one off there finest yet great song lyrics, we'll wait and see



Mercy | Reviewer: Annie | 11/22/07

Bono replied to a fan that asked him about this song that it will probably be on the next U2 album which is due 2008! He had no idea that Mercy was leaked though, so I think he was pretty surprised to hear.
I can't wait to hear the album version, although this demo version is amazing as well.

"We're binary code... a one and a zero
You wanted violins... and you got nero"

That's pure brilliance, right there. ^^



The song they left of Atomic Bomb ! | Reviewer: elliottness | 11/10/07

U2 left this song off How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb at the last moment and unless it's on their new album that decision appears foolhardy and criminal because this is a classic BIG U2 song. It has wonderful lyrics, is finished production (so you can hear it's album ready until they pulled it at the last moment) and combined with the expansive sound makes it a real treat, now that it can be found on youtube...so go there and have a sneak peak because it's not officially released.
