I could’ve gone to war, become a God of Wrath
My fingers snap (Flash!) and baby, you’d be nothing but ash
But I thought better of it, oh yeah

You could go old-school on me and not spare the lash
You could bash, smash me baby, throw me out with the trash
But you thought better of it
Your love had mercy mercy mercy on me
Better of it
Mercy mercy mercy on me
Better of it
Mercy mercy mercy

We got dressed in our New Testament best
And thought better of it

Could take an eye for an eye, drown in a big blood bath
That fast (Crash!) and baby, we’re a sad aftermath
But we thought better of it
Our love had mercy mercy mercy on us
Better of it
Mercy mercy mercy
Better of it
Mercy mercy mercy

We got dressed in our New Testament best
And thought better of it

I could’ve gone to war, become a God of Wrath
My fingers snap (Flash!) and baby, you’d be nothing but ash
But I thought better of it
My love had mercy mercy mercy on you
Better of it
You’re love had mercy mercy mercy on me
Better of it
We got dressed in our New Testament best
And thought better of it
Better of it
