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 knows 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
