What is this song about ?

by Madame Monsieur

Here is where I was born

With the name Mercy

Somewhere out in between 

On the open sea,

Mercy!
Mama travelled so far 

Over every tide

 And for nearly nine months 

I was safe inside

Oh I, I was safe inside
But she couldn’t ignore 

What she had to do

 Ran away from the war 

Nothing left to lose

Oh no, nothing but our lives
Here ! is where I was born

With the name Mercy 

Someone held out a hand

Giving life to me 

For all the children lost 

To the cold, cold sea

I’ll live ten thousand years

Je m’appelle MercY

I had to take a breath

she had to be free

to start again with nothing left

start a life with me

MercY


But surrounded by blue,

nothing else in sight

 If the water won, we would pay the price 

Oh we, we’d pay it with our lives
Rising over a wave came another boat

 A chance at survival, a sign of hope 

Oh my, they sang when they heard me cry
Here is where I was born

With the name MercY 

Someone held out a hand

Giving life to me 

For all the children lost 

To the cold, cold sea

I’ll live ten thousand years

Je m’appelle MercY

(it) does not mean

we are safe and sound

when we are around

when we are around solid crowds

when tomorrow comes

when tomorrow comes


Here is where I was born

with the name Mercy

( x repeated)

I made it MercY

Je m’appelle Mercy

Merci, merci, merci, merci

 Merci, merci, I made it, merci

I made it MercY

Je vais bien merci

Merci, merci, merci, merci
