[Verse 1]
  Am                           Am7
Looking down on empty streets, all she can see,
         Dm/F                           Dm7
Are the dreams all made solid, are the dreams made real,
Am                    Am7
All of the buildings, all of the cars,
     Dm/F                    Dm7
Were once just a dream in somebody's head,
      Am                         Am7
She pictures the broken glass, pictures the steam,
     Dm/F                Dm7             Am
She pictures a soul with no leak at the seams!

 Am
Take the boat out! (Wait until darkness!)
 Am                                         Am/G   Am
Let's take the boat out! (Wait until dark - ness comes!)


[Verse 2]
  Am                        Am7
Nowhere in the corridors of pale green and grey,
  Dm/F                          Dm7
Nowhere in the suburbs, in the cold light of day,
 Am                              Am7
There in the midst of it, so a - live and alone,
  F           F/C   G
Words support like bone!


[Chorus]
   G        Am    F    G      Am            Am/G  F
Dreaming of Mer - cy Street, wear your in - side out,
              C     F  F/A  G/B          Am               G
Dreaming of mercy...            in your daddy's arms a - gain,
            Am    F  F/A     G      Am              Am/G  F
Dreaming of Mer - cy-----  Street, swear they moved that sign,
              C     F  F/A  G/B          Am
Dreaming of mercy...            in your daddy's arms!

[Verse 3]
  Am                              Am7
Pulling out the papers from the drawers that slide smooth,
 Dm/F                    Dm7
Tugging at the darkness, word upon word,
         Am                                 Am7
Con - fessing all the secret things, in the warm velvet box,
       Dm/F                             Dm7
To the priest, he's the doctor, he can handle the shocks,
   Am                             Am7
Dreaming of the tenderness, the tremble in the hips,
      F          F/C   G
Of kissing Mar - y's lips!


[Chorus]
   G        Am    F    G      Am             Am/G  F
Dreaming of Mer - cy Street,  wear your in - side out,
              C     F  F/A G/B          Am               G
Dreaming of mercy...           in your daddy's arms a - gain,
            Am    F  F/A     G      Am              Am/G  F
Dreaming of Mer - cy-----  Street, swear they moved that sign,
              C      F  F/A G/B             Am
Looking for mercy...              in your daddy's arms!

Mercy ...mercy ...looking for mercy!
  Am     A7sus4                Am

   Oh - oh, mercy,      looking for mercy!

 Am                       Am7
Anne, with her father, is out in the boat,
 Dm/F              Dm7                               Am
Riding the water, riding the waves...  on the sea!
