Lyrics

What’s your name? Come on, what’s your name?

Tell me, can’t you give me something to chew?

When I go home I may be alone

I’m only lonely when I’m thinking of you

You walk in with your strut; a punch to my gut

Growing dizzy, I start shaking like I’m scared

Never felt so real, never share what I feel

But I feel maybe this time I’ll share

 

You got me like mercy lifting me high up top the storm

Pick me like a young girl picks a flower

Hold me till you mold me to your form

Cool me like spring rain; bathe me in your laughter every time

Cool me like spring rain, cool me like spring rain

Throw me your mercy, carrying me up top the storm

(a little bit higher now, a little bit higher)

Flying up above the clouds we’ll soar

(a little bit higher now, a little bit higher)

Flying up above the clouds we’ll soar

 

I dream; I know the cost

Now tell me you know what you’re looking at, I know you ain’t lost

Your eyes, they’re moving left to right; your body stays curled

With your paperback jetpack you travel the world

Saturdays, you make your way

The bell on the door of the coffee shop rings

The smile you bring through the littlest things

Like calling the barista by name – you’re so sweet!

And not because you know

Rather, you know if you show it

You can make someone’s day a little better

 

That’s got me like mercy lifting me high up top the storm

Pick me like a young girl picks a flower

Hold me till you mold me to your form

Cool me like spring rain; bathe me in your laughter every time

Cool me like spring rain, cool me like spring rain

Throw me your mercy, carrying me up top the storm

 

Oh no, look out below

Why, oh why, does time move slow

From Sunday through to Friday

Then lightning speed on my day?

 

Is your secret power speeding time?

 

Cool me like spring rain; bathe me in your laughter every time

Cool me like spring rain, cool me like spring rain

Throw me your mercy carrying me up top

Mercy carryin me up, mercy carrying me up top the storm

 

What’s your name?
