Intro:  Esus - Esus - Gbm7 - Bsus2


Verse 1:

Esus
Late last night I awoke in a dream
       Bbm7                               Gbm7          Bsus2
To the sound of a voice that was almost a scream, oh oh oh
     Esus
From out of the city and out of the street
Bbm7                                Gbm7         Bsus2
Out where the wind hits the cold concrete, oh oh oh


Pre-Chorus 1:

Asus2  E    Asus2  E    Asus2  E          Bsus2    
 It's  cold  out   side, dark  ness, your enemy
Asus2  E    Asus2  E    Asus2  E          Gbm7
 No    place to    hide, the   voice said this to me


Chorus 1:

        Asus2      
In your doorways I have shivered
                               Bsus2
In your alleys I have gone to ground
Gbm7
I will be delivered
    Bsus2               Esus - Gbm7 - Bsus2
Someday I will be mercy bound


Verse 2:

  Esus
I dreamed again it was West L.A.
      Bbm7                            Gbm7        Bsus2
On a crowded street on a hot summer day, she was alone
Esus
Three months late and beginning to show
       Bbm7                               
In a midriff blouse she would soon outgrow
        Gbm7                  Bsus2
She had no one to call and no way home


Pre-Chorus 2:

Asus2  E   Asus2  E    Asus2  E        Bsus2
 And   in   my    mind   I    knew I'd seen myself
Asus2  E   Asus2  E         Asus2   E          Gbm7
 But   in   our   blindness, always seems like someone else


Chorus 2:

Asus2
There I was a rag a bone
                           Bsus2
A remnant in your lost and found
  Gbm7
I was for once truly alone
Bsus2               E
Longing to be mercy bound


Bridge:

      C
And I knew that I would wander as a child
                       D
In the forest 'til they found me
      C
And I called out to them but I could not penetrate
                 E       Gbm7   Bsus2
The silence all around me


Pre-Chorus 3:

Asus2  E   Asus2  E    Asus2  E           Bsus2
 And   when  I    wake   I    know you'll comfort me
Asus2  E  Asus2  E      Asus2    E   Gbm7
 And   I   won't sleep again for an eternity


Chorus 3:

    Asus2 
But others lie awake at night
                       Bsus2
In desperation more profound
        Gbm7
And the coming of the morning light
Bsus2                   E
Will not see them mercy bound
    Asus            E/Ab
And some will never dream again
     Gbm7            Bsus2
From sleeping on the ground
     Asus2            
Just longing to belong
Bsus2             Asus2
Dying to be mercy bound
Gbm7 
please don't stop your dreaming
    Bsus2                  Esus    Gbm7
Someday we'll all be mercy bound
    Bsus2     Esus
Someday mercy bound
Gbm7  Bsus2   E
oohhhhh, ohhhhhhh
