Well I have lived ten years plus ten
And ten and ten again
I have seen too much to pretend
Then you wanted to come in

I have survived all of the lies, they made me wise
The locks and walls and the peace it buys
Still when I look into your eyes
It's a surprise when you say

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away

Well I plead mercy, mercy baby
I do not know what this all means
It's been awhile, since I've been stylin' in
Just my jacket and my jeans

It hurts to walk, it hurts to talk
It hurts to think about it, shout about it
Could I be sure without a doubt
That you could never live without

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away

I want to fall in you
Crawl in you
Surrender, all in you now
Could I be sure in you
Pure in you
Finding cure in you
Now I plead
Have mercy on me, oh

Now I am kneeling at the altar
In the temple of your eyes
And I am asking for a miracle
I have been too long paralyzed when you say

Get up, stand up
Climb the rope of hope and open up again
All the peace you say is promised me
Seems too much to comprehend

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
Let it all go away
Mercy
