lyrics

I see you standing
Standing at the crossroads
In the winter
Standing in your grave
Your legs are broken
Your bones feel the water
Its cold out in the rain

You dance real slowly
Hover to the rhythm
With a partner
Nobody else can see
Just like the cedar
Buried beneath the pavement
At Hastings street and Main

There is a blanket
Smells like salt and roses
Where I gave it
Where I gave it all away
Where are breathing
Hover into rhythm
Listening to the rain
Yeah we were listening to the rain

And the queen of mercy
She can feel your pain

There is a secret
A secret that you carry
Keeps you from sleeping
In the middle of the night
All the riches
You worked so hard to gather
Aren't as perfect as you claim
They're not as perfect as you claim

And the queen of mercy
Stands out in the rain singing

Her arms of silver
Holding up the plaster
Strong like the mountain
Where she took her name
I was her angel
Her angel of disaster
Her season in the rain

There are two doorways
Into her bedroom
And her blanket
She swims in like the sea
She sleeps between them
Buried beneath the sunrise
Hoping for the rain
Yeah she is hoping for the rain

And the queen of mercy
She will always let you try again
