Life Goes On (Sweet Mercy)
Reflections in the glass of abandoned storefronts
Years took their toll on her face and her mind
Too many times, her heart has been broken
But hey, life goes on
Mercy, sweet mercy, can’t you see her pain inside
Mercy, sweet mercy, for the girl she left behind
He asked himself a long time ago…
"Why stay in a race that’s inhuman and cruel?"
He lost the game, his job and his name, what a shame
But hey, life goes on
Ooh, Mercy, sweet mercy, can’t you see his pain inside
Mercy, sweet mercy, for the man he left behind
A broken heart, some shattered dreams
Promises made, that were never redeemed
A damaged soul, a mind confused
With nowhere to go, they’ve got nothing to lose
Ooh, Mercy, sweet mercy, oh, can’t you feel their pain inside
Yeah, ooh, Mercy, sweet mercy, hey, for the ones we leave behind
Somehow they couldn’t make the run
But, she’s still somebody’s daughter, he’s still somebody’s son
Somehow they couldn’t make the run
The ones we left behind
Hey, yeah, life goes on…goes on and on
Somebody’s daughter, somebody’s son
And life goes on and on and on
