Lyrics Edit

Looking down on empty streets
All she can see
Are the dreams all made solid
The dreams all made real

All of the buildings
And all of those cars
Were once just a dream
In somebody's head

She pictures the broken glass
She pictures the steam
She pictures a soul
With no leak at the seam

Let's take the boat out
Wait until darkness
Let's take the boat out
Wait until darkness comes

Nowhere in the corridors of
Pale green and grey
Nowhere in the suburbs
In the cold light of day
There in the midst of it
So alive and alone
Words support like bone

Dreaming of Mercy Street
Wear your inside out
Dreaming of mercy
In your daddy's arms again
Dreaming of Mercy Street
Swear they moved that sign
Dreaming of mercy...
