“…She pictures a soul With no leak at the seam
Let’s take the boat out Wait until darkness
Let’s take the boat out Wait until darkness comes…”

Absolutely beautiful. Found myself so deeply caught up in the rhythm and lyrics – very emotional and meaningful. Thank you for this – much appreciated.

Hey Don. You’re welcome. PG touches something deeply personal with this song, that is not just about Anne Sexton.

A wonderful version of Mercy Street that I had not heard before. This is from my favorite Peter Gabriel album! One of the few that I can still listen to repeatedly.
Thanks a bunch!

I’m glad it still resonates with you. For me this is one of the most moving songs he has ever written.
