Performances (73)

Simplicity, does not come easy 
When you’re dreaming of being someone else 
And grace you see is fleeting 
When you’re bleeding your innerself

Have Mercy on me please 
Have Mercy, I’m on my knees 
I’m being broken again and again 
I’ll keep being broken until I remain 

When you're locked away, 
Fighting shadows, constant battles 
Trying to feel safe 
When your own armor starts killing you, 
Cause it’s causing you to sink beneath its weight

Call for mercy, won’t you please 
Call for mercy, get on your knees 
You’re being broken, again and again 
You’ll keep being broken, until you remain 

So feel the pain, give into it 
Cry till you crack, that’s how the light gets in 
Set your weapons on the ground 
Until you’re naked and trembling now 
And when you think you can’t stand any more

Give mercy to someone in need 
Give mercy, don't you see 
Life will break our hearts, again and again 
We’ll keep being broken until we remain 

Can’t you see 
I have broken wide open 
Let yourself be broken wide open 
I have broken open

Flower of Life
“This is the newest song on the album. I wrote it for myself. I was in a lot of pain when I wrote it. It really touches me when I sing it. It reminds me a little bit of “Hands” just in its message: yielding and giving instead of being more brittle and fighting and armored. I’ve been playing it live recently and it seems to be bringing a lot of comfort to people. People often cry when I sing it. It's always nice when you create something for yourself that you really needed to hear and it seems to be something other people needed to hear as well.” Picking Up the Pieces Press Release
