Jessi Colter — Please Carry Me Home lyrics

When the blood curdlin' scream
Of the fear in my vains
Pierces the darkness circlin' my brain
When the pain in my soul is too great to explain
I reach out for you, I'm callin' your name

Lord, please have mercy on my troubled soul
You keep me together when there's nothing to hold
Lord, please have mercy, I've nowhere to go
When the temptation is over, please carry me home

Would the jewel of deception rest in the crown
Upon the heaven, the tempter who's hand keeps me down
Living so carlessly, so easy to do
But now that I'm paying, I running to you

Lord, please have mercy on my troubled soul
You keep me together when there's nothing to hold
Oh, Lord, please have mercy, I've nowhere to go
When the temptation is over, please carry me home
