"Sister Of Mercy" as written by Tom Bailey, Alannah Joy Currie and Joseph Martin Leeway....
She lives in a big white house
The rooms are lemon and she's devoted to life
of keeping this house just right, ooh, ooh
The weekends are perfectly nice ooh, ooh
And she doesn't talk when he comes home at night
Twenty five years she's just the same
She's a lonely woman, quiet in her ways
Then he comes home one night
She kills him with a knife
Now she's the one who's a living in paradise
(chorus)
(Sister of mercy) No sister of mercy
Oh don't cry for me
(sister of mercy) No sister of mercy
It's all alright for me
Now she sits in a big white chair
In a room that's not so different to the one back there
She turns her face to the light
But she is blinded by her life
You can hear her cry alone at night
(REPEAT CHORUS)
So have mercy on that woman you don't know the way it's been
You don't know the trouble her eyes have seen
Can you feel the kiss of life when you come home at night?
Well, you better not turn your back on a paradise
(REPEAT CHORUS)
Sister of mercy (Sister of mercy)
Sister of mercy oh, oh
Sister of mercy (Sister of mercy)
Sister of mercy oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
(REPEAT CHORUS x 2)

    General CommentWow..no comments for this song. I really think this is a song that pretty much explains itself. A woman who is married to a man. Seems that she is being abused by him and he rarely comes home because of affairs. So she decides to kill him. Society wants to look at her like she is a criminal,but they don't know the whole story.
