Mercy Street 05:13


My fifth covers release with Matt is my all-time favorite Peter Gabriel song.

In 35 years, I've never stopped to really think about what the words meant, and I don't plan to. I only care about how those words make me feel.

There's a certain tear-jerking magic, layered with nostalgia, packed into key phrases like “in your Daddy's arms again,” “wear your inside out,” or even just the word “mercy.”

I hope we've done it justice.
