The Only Way Out



Lyrics

If you could look inside my life
And use my eyes
Would you pity me
Would you see the desperate nights
And all the lies
That brought me to my knees
I keep thinking that I have to make you
Fall the way I fell from your betrayal
To bring me peace of mind
I won't let you move along
Just walk away and wear a cape
Like your some hero

I can't hear love cause we're at war
And revenge is so loud
And the drums are so proud
But oh I'm in a cage
And I hear mercy say
I'm here now
And it's the only way out
But revenge is so loud
And the drums are so proud
But I'm still in a cage
And I hear mercy saying now
It's the only way out

I used to hear my father say
Counter play ends in defeat
I said I'd never be that way
Try to make you pay
Because it would cost me
But you owe me so much more
Than what you gave to this
Guess every story twists
People tell me let it go
And forgive

I can't hear love cause we're at war
And revenge is so loud
And the drums are so proud
But oh I'm in a cage
And I hear mercy say
I'm here now
And it's the only way out
But revenge is so loud
And the drums are so proud
But I'm still in a cage
And I hear mercy saying now
It's the only way

Oh

Mercy is the only way out
Mercy gave me my way out
