Thirsty for Mercy

from by David Yeager Band

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The Yeagers are adopting! We would love your support and partnership as we prepare to bring a child home through international adoption.

    You will receive an autographed copy of the CD, plus the following:
    -A download code for an instrumental version of the album
    -A personal thank-you note from David & Brittany
    -A DYB guitar pick (gotta have one of those)

    This version of the CD is priced $5 higher than the standard edition, which means those extra five dollars will go into our adoption fund. There's also an option to "name your price" above the minimum, so please give as you are able - $15, $25, $50, or more. Anything extra will go directly towards the adoption.

    We'll include an additional gift item for donations of $25 or more. But really, we'd be thrilled with any support and encouragement from you, big and small. And if you'd rather just buy a CD, that's totally fine. Just choose the "standard edition" or digital download below.

    Note: this web platform (Bandcamp) charges a percentage of all orders as a processing fee. It's usually well worth it, because Bandcamp is awesome. But if you are considering a large donation (say $100 or more), you may want to contact us directly, so that your funds can be transferred more efficiently.

    Thank you!!

lyrics

I woke at the first light like it was the first light of my life
I had the worst night, might have been the worst night of my life
Turned and tossed on a sea of silence
Licking up the salt of my own tears
I was lost in my own defiance ‘til I washed up here

Oh, I'm thirsty for mercy
But I keep spilling that cup
Oh, I'm thirsty for mercy
And you keep filling it up

Call it a fist fight: she let fly 'cause I let slip
And now I can't kiss right - I've got this crack across my lips
The trouble starts with the crack between them
That's where the words escape my mouth
I try to stop if I don't mean them, but it still goes south

Oh, I'm thirsty for mercy
But I keep spilling that cup
Oh, I'm thirsty for mercy
And you keep filling it up

I walked a dry and weary land
(Among the thorns, between the thieves)
I struck a stone and washed my hands
(A woman mourns, a body bleeds)
I'm the first to quench my thirst
But I'm the last to raise my glass to you
(Why have you forsaken me?)
Father, forgive me

Oh, I'm thirsty for mercy
But I keep spilling that cup
Oh, I'm thirsty for mercy
And you keep filling it up
