Owner: Scott Carmichael Genre: Rock Total Plays: 29
Quick Summary:

a NYC bluesy kind of song... written on piano

Media Description:

My son Ian played drums on this... I played and sang everything else... one of the hardest songs for me to mix through the years... I want to hear everything and it was never quite possible... so it's never been quite right… Mixbus is giving me better results than ever before ... I wrote this on piano... I actually wrote this while driving... I could pretty much hear the whole song in my head… so when I got home I picked up my guitar and I proceeded to lose the whole thing... I set my guitar down and spent some time retrieving what I originally heard... and then I went to the piano and the song re-emerged... 


recorded and mixed here at my home studio... 


Ever the wanderer, often away

Only half listen to things that you say

Then the storm drives me home, and I find I’m alone

and I’m frightened and longing for friends.

When the grace is all used up, then your mercy begins


And the mercy that follows me where ever I’ve been

Is the mercy that saves me again and again

The God of that mercy has been a great friend... oh mercy

Send me mercy, tender mercy again


Sometimes a fugitive, guilty of crime

Fully preparing to do some hard time

Then i fall to my knees and I cry out God please

I’m afraid I may die in my sin

When the grace is all used up 

then that’s when your mercy begins


And the mercy that follows me where ever I’ve been

Is the mercy that saves me again and again

The God of that mercy has been a great friend... oh mercy

Send me mercy, tender mercy again


Mercy keep me in this place

never let me fall from grace

Mercy finds me when I’m far

brings me back to where you are

If my heart is far away

precious mercy let me stay

Close enough to see your face

God of mercy ful of grace
