Juan P-B Songs Re Violence/Abuse to Women (76* d) RE: Songs Re Violence/Abuse to Women 24 Aug 04

I suppose this comes under the definition of 'abuse' - Cracking song though

Angel Of Mercy (Ron Trueman-Border)

Victoria station at eleven-fifteen
She's drinking cold coffee by the ticket machine
The crowd's pushing by her and in each stranger's face
She sees an angel of mercy, fallen from grace

On the back streets of Soho she stumbles and falls
And there in the darkness by the tenement walls
She slips that sweet needle way down deep in her vein
She hears that angel of mercy whispering her name

Once she was pretty. Once she was young
And the sweet taste of life was like wine on her tongue
Now the wine's turned to water and the years have slipped away
She hears that angel of mercy calling "Judgement Day"

Now there's nowhere she can run to. Nowhere she can hide
So she steps into that back-seat and she swallows her pride
And as she gives up her body she closes her eyes
Feels that angel of mercy right there by her side

So she slips into the church. Falls down to her knees
Makes the sign of the cross and prays, "Sweet Jesus! Please,
If my sins can't be forgiven and if my soul cannot be saved
Send down an Angel of Mercy to lead me to my grave

She hears the beat of the drum and the toll of the bell
She's torn between kingdom come and the heartbreak hotel
Tonight she's walking in the wilderness. Into the great unknown
Sweet angel of mercy come down and carry her home
