The Church of Mercy


Show me again

How we do it

Do I have to be under covers

or is it something I can share

with my brothers

Show me again

How we do it

 

I may dress the same

as they do

Or maybe I just hold the chalice

better for You

Oh, the things I hold

 

Reading as You talk aloud

I get a sense of urgency

to be proud

Such a sensation

Comes over me

Until a face turns and gives me pity

 

Show me again

How we do it

 

Your word is Your bond

and of that, I’m quite fond

To know that I should know better

when Your voices becomes

an “I Love You” letter

Never will I divulge my secret crush

Hush.

 

So, Show Me again

What made You do this to me

 

Was it the air I breathed

when You walked by

Did my subservience entice You

and fixate Your eyes on the sky?

How many times did I

touch Your robe

Before we made plans

to see the golden globe?

 

But, in time, I’ll be on my own

Trying to establish a name

from which I’ve grown

And Anaphora will keep haunting me

in ways that it could only be

Show Me again

what made You do this to me

 

Show Me again

so I can have my one true friend

The Night Before


I just had to pull your hair

While you were sitting there in that chair

Such a vision to me

You make my destiny

 

Even now, the way you smell

Knocks me down and rings my bell

Oh, you’re good enough to eat

Like an ice cream sandwich and cookie treat

 

I can still see the way you moved

You smiled that smile the way you grooved

I’ll never forget being on the dance floor

And the love we made the night before

 

As a matter of speaking

Lord knows if I’m not tweaking

You really had them going

Even made me worth knowing

 

It didn’t matter what you wore

You rocked that line and settled the score

But in case they want a little more

Let’s do it again like the night before

 

You made me snap my fingers

Loud enough to drown back-up singers

Believe I even touched the floor

I didn’t do that the night before

 

Felt I had to give a little something

Couldn’t just stare at you and do nothing

You took my hand and you gave a whole lot more

Can you do it again like the night before?

 

I even let off a hand clap

The crowd went wild when you fell on my lap

You took me all over the world

When you showed the crowd you were my girl

The Universe plays God

How can I

exist in the universe

when I am prohibited

from leaving myself here

on Earth

without repercussions?

Though I send my prayers

and cast my spells

only the soil beneath my feet

vibrates

and keeps me grounded

Above me knows how much

my passion longs for its embrace

The clock I hear

ticks alongside me when

I bow my head

Though it is the pendulum I

see when I look up

Oh, sweet precious clicks

For some to get their kicks

Do bid me mercy

to be one with you and

just once to feel like number one

while my eyes can see above and

below

For if I should bow my head

once too many times

I wouldn’t have

the very best of both worlds

to thank

 

Your Husband Doesn’t Have To Know


Holding hands

And walking through the park

Each other’s greatest fan

See the back door after dark

 

A careful ring

With a special tone

Oh, how you make my heart sing

Why must either one of us be alone

 

I know he got you

But he doesn’t make your love flow

Believe me when I say this much is true

Your husband doesn’t have to know

 

The way you slip in and out

Of the things you bought with his card

Make me love what this is all about

Can it get any more hard

 

Break my back

Make me lose my mind

Never treat you like some halftime snack

The deeper I go, I never know what I’ll find

 

Keep it tight, and keep it right

I can taste the flavor in the air

Don’t let your head put up a fight

I’ll cherish our time with tender loving care

 

I love to love you, baby

How else can I let my feelings show

I’ll keep it on the sneak tip, if you want me to

And darling, your husband doesn’t have to know

 

And if you have any doubt

Go ahead and tell him I’m just a friend

He’s the one with all the clout

But we know how this tale will end

The Moment I Said, “Yes”


Saw you there

Or did you see me first

Didn’t need to ask your name

What’s the difference when it’s all the same?

 

When I made my way to you

Barely knew just what to say

This may be more than I can do

But I wouldn’t have it any other way

 

But the moment I said, “Yes”

I felt you give yourself to me

Deepest thoughts I want to confess

Moving in a soft, warm ocean is where I want to be

 

Take my lips

Hide them from the rest of the world

Swallow my hips

My toes and fingers are now curled

 

Move me with you

Take me places you’ve never been

Relieve what could be blue

Again and again making me say, “Yes” over and over

With my new friend

 

All this because I said, “Yes”

And you kept me strong but weak

Like a baptism now at rest

Holy Ghost in my spine I can’t speak

 

The moment I said, “Yes”

I really was there

Feeling you against my chest

What better way to show you care

 

“Yes,” I said

But not for just a moment

It’s all me from my feet to my head

Like a heat-seeking missile,

Oh, you know what I meant

Rough Hands (on my body)


Rough hands

Want to touch my body

They must think

I am somebody

But I am somebody

They must see my insides

 

May be they need some lotion

For all this locomotion

Guess I have a potion

Imagine that, What a notion

Play with my emotion

Take me on some fun rides

 

Rough hands

How can they see

The other side of me

Rough hands

They must be

What I don’t want to be

Rough hands

Rough hands

Just don’t scratch my back

The way I turn away

 May cause a heart attack

 

 I say

I am somebody

Just watch me touch

My body

It’s all about my body

Rough hands

They have a body

I know they have a body

Because everybody

Wants to be somebody

And I am somebody

With a body

That’s wanted by somebody

With Rough Hands

 

 

Can I hate you?


Can I hate you

for loving me too long

Can I hate you

for making us a sweet love song

 

Can I hate you

for always being right?

Can I hate you

for never putting up a fight?

 

Why should I hate

when love is what I need

Will I ever relate

when my past only made me bleed

But I love you

Although I should hate you

This much is true

Just that I don’t want to

 

Can I hate you

for being so good to my friends

What won’t you do

when you don’t have to make amends?

 

Can I hate you

when I know you love me?

How You’ll never have a clue

 as long as I say, “I Love You”

 

I don’t want to

I can’t hate you

I can’t hate you

Because I don’t want to
