Andra Day - The Only Way Out Lyrics
[Verse 1]
If you could look inside my life
And use my eyes, would you pity me?
Would you see the desperate nights
And all the lies that brought me to my knees
I keep thinking that I have to make you fall
The way I fell from your betrayal to bring me peace of mind
I will let you move along, just walk away
And wear a cape like you're some hero

[Chorus]
I can't hear love cause we're at war
And revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But oh, I'm in a cage and I hear mercy say "I'm here now"
And it's the only way out
I can't hear love cause we're at war
But revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But I'm still in a cage and I hear mercy say now
It's the only way out
[Verse 2]
I used to hear my father say, "Counterplay ends in defeat"
And I said I'd never be that way
Tried to make you pay cause it would cost me
But you owe me so much more than what you gave to this
I guess every story twists
People tell me let it go, oh, and forget

[Chorus]
I can't hear love cause we're at war
And revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But oh, I'm in a cage and I hear mercy say "I'm here now"
And it's the only way out
I can't hear love cause we're at war
But revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But I'm still in a cage and I hear mercy say now
It's the only way

[Outro]
Mercy's the only way out
Mercy gave me my way out
