​House of Mercy

This song is by Sarah Jarosz and appears on the album Undercurrent (2016).

In the middle of the night again
Still water and the birds don't sing
Cold gin in the back room hummin'
Medicating for the trouble that's comin'

Walls rattle like a deisel freighter
Blood races like a wave
This house wasn't meant for strangers
But you come knockin' anyway

I can hear you knockin' on the door
I won't leave it open for you anymore
I can hear you knockin' on the door
Knockin' on the door of the house of mercy

Don't try to change my mind
That knock gets louder all the time
Don't try to wear me down
You'll never get inside this house

Underneath that shirt you're wearin'
Strained muscles n' a heart of stone
Double crossin' like a wild chameleon
You make me wanna be alone

I can hear you knockin' on the door
I won't leave it open for you anymore
I can hear you knockin' on the door
Knockin' on the door of the house of mercy

Don't try to change my mind
That knock gets louder all the time
Don't try to wear me down
You'll never get inside this house

I can hear you knockin' on the door
I won't leave it open for you anymore
I can hear you knockin' on the door
Knockin' on the door of the house of mercy
