    Late last night I awoke in a dream
    To the sound of a voice that was almost a scream, oh oh oh
    From out of the city and out of the street
    Out where the wind hits the cold concrete, oh oh oh

    It's cold outside, darkness, your enemy
    No place to hide, the voice said this to me

    In your doorways I have shivered
    In your alleys I have gone to ground
    I will be delivered
    Someday I will be mercy bound

    I dreamed again it was West LA
    On a crowded street on a hot summer day, she was alone
    Three months late and beginning to show
    In a midriff blouse she would soon outgrow
    She had no one to call and no way home

    And in my mind I knew I'd seen myself
    But in our blindness, always seems like someone else

    There I was a rag a bone
    A remnant in your lost and found
    I was for once truly alone
    Longing to be mercy bound

    And I knew that I would wander as a child
    In the forest 'til they found me
    And I called out to them but I could not penetrate
    The silence all around me

    And when I wake I know you'll comfort me
    And I won't sleep again for an eternity

    But others lie awake at night
    In desperation more profound
    And the coming of the morning light
    Will not see them mercy bound

    And some will never dream again
    From sleeping on the ground

    Just longing to belong
    Dying to be mercy bound
    Please don't stop your dreaming
    Someday we'll all be mercy bound
    Someday mercy bound
