lyrics

Hands Of Mercy
(Markus Rill)

I was so young and so in love
I thought I'd never run out of luck
But I was so wrong because you gave up
when I didn't nearly have enough

What was a boy supposed to do, not yet a man?
I wound up feeling like a fool, I did not understand

The hands of time are hands of mercy
they clear my mind of what used to be
and every day you slip further away from my memory
the hands of time are hands of mercy

Now I've come along and I've come to find
that you're hardly ever on my mind
I'm not all that strong but I get by
and I hardly ever have to cry

So what is a man supposed to do? I'm not much on advice
I still wind up feeling like a fool but I realize

The hands of time are hands of mercy
they clear my mind of what used to be
and every day you slip further away from my memory
the hands of time are hands of mercy

What is a boy supposed to do, what is a man?
We all wind up feeling just like fools now and again

The hands of time are hands of mercy
they clear my mind of what used to be
and every day you slip further away from my memory
the hands of time are hands of mercy
