Come pick me up from the night
From the hands of the dark
From the things I didn't know
That would simply break your heart
There were years in this room
Lined and shattered in the glass
Held it up to myself 'til I just couldn't stand

So don't ask me where I've been, cause you don't wanna know
And don't ask me who I'm seeing, no, you don't wanna know
And don't come around me here when I need you the most
Leave it alone, leave a little room for the Holy Ghost

And come take me out of the light
I don't feel you anymore
I came apart from myself
And from the crosses you wore
And the things in my soul
Once my comforting friend
I came to the reasons
And I lost you again

So don't ask me where I've been, cause you don't wanna know
And don't ask me who I'm seeing, no, you don't wanna know
And don't come around me here when I need you the most
Leave it alone, and leave a little room for the Holy Ghost

And now your pretty horses run wild and free
You can go and find a lover, baby, better than me
Talking snow for days with your friends in L.A.
Have mercy

Now your pretty horses run wild and free
You can go and find a lover, baby, better than me
Talking snow for days with your friends in L.A.
Have mercy

Now your pretty horses run wild and free
You can go and find a lover, baby, better than me
Talking snow for days with your friends in L.A.
Have mercy

And now your pretty horses run wild and free
You can go and find a lover, baby, better than me
Talking snow for days with your friends in L.A.
Have mercy
Have mercy

    General Comment"You're dangerous, 'cause you're honest."

    That's what I feel in the closing phrases of this song. The "Have Mercy" addition is a genuine appeal from a man who feels too much.

    I love that this message closes out Get Hurt. My favorite line is: "leave a little room for the Holy Ghost".

    Perhaps forgiveness can be granted at the end of this most despondent album, despite its many transgressions.

    "C'mon now love, don't you look back..."
