The Lyrics[Verse 1] Side by side
My face reflected in your eyes
Light up the night
I let you be my guide [Pre-Chorus] Hope and mercy, you and I
Pray for mercy, you and I [Chorus] Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Don’t turn your back [Verse 2] Yeah, I feel something
Like a heartquake under our days
So real, my skin
Under pressure, feel the tremors [Pre-Chorus] Understanding is all I ask
Please have mercy, don’t turn your back
