Small Mercies

Big enough to reason that the world is not at war,
with all you are attempting to invent and who you are.
and young enough to wonder at the meaning of it all,
but frightened by the ashes in your eyes.

Don't you run away, take it on the chin,
don't you settle down, don't you settle in,
Never good enough.
Don't you wanna see what you could've won,
don't you wanna do all you could've done
This is what you get.
It's the small, smallest mercy in the world.

Sleeping with light on, there's no comfort in the dark
and all the distant thunder is the sound of passing cars.
There'll always be a tomorrow but it's not enough by far.
you need to fan the embers in your eyes.

Don't you run away, take it on the chin...

If the pill won't go down, take it another way.
When the rumours go round,
do you care what they're gonna say?
It's the smallest mercy in the world.

Don't you run away, take it on the chin...

At the end of all everlasting days when the hours ring
and the minutes they hover over you
like a bird of prey on the motorway
It's all right you get my love.
