Wilson, Brian - Love And Mercy Lyrics




I was sittin' in a crummy movie
With my hands on my chin
All the violence that occurs
Seems like we never win

Love and mercy, that's what you need tonight
So love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

I was lying in my room
And the news came on TV
A lotta people out there hurtin'
And it really scares me

Love and mercy, that's what you need tonight
Love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

I was standing in a bar
And watching all the people there
Oh, the loneliness in this world
Well it's just not fair

Hey, love and mercy, that's what we need tonight
So love and mercy to you and your friends tonight
Love and mercy, that's what you need tonight
Love and mercy tonight
Love and mercy tonight

  7. knightfive

    For someone so similar to brian, mental illness, drugs, bad therapists, etc I tried to think about how sadly I had that in common with him (without the musical genius). I thought my god is there something we have in common that is good and similar? I finally realized we both had heart, and that is the common thread to a lot of mentally ill people....heart, Don't give up.

  30. LeAnn's Fear Cocktail

    Simply beautiful and so talented!

  31. Butch Jones

    82 thumbs down...no taste idiots.....

  32. ooberonfire

    Such a beautiful song, and this performance is just so good. Only recently (last couple of years) have I learned more about the story of The Beach Boys, more specifically Brian. Such a heartbreaking yet eventually uplifting story. I must look at some of the books recommended by people on here :)

  33. paul nafstad

    To Timber-Beast. How eloquent you`re message is.I thoroughly agree with you , and when I get on this rant I`m accused of being too negative but facts are facts and you are spot on. So what to do? Firstly, practice Love and Mercy as Brian said. Secondly , know that there is an abundance of kindness and compassion out there.( I work for Catholic Charities of Mpls./St. Paul) You should see the result of the public/private partnership between Business, Individuals and Govt. in the Twin Cities. It would lift you`re heart a mile high. Not all Business Men and Women and Governments ,(or individuals), are heartless. I see the proof every day. Most importantly keep hoping. It`s easy to get discouraged but the God of my understanding works in mysterious ways and I firmly believe this will all work out eventually. We`re just in for another wake up call.(We`ve forgotten our lessons we`ve been taught. Think W.W. two).This great country which has been given soooooo much has lost part of it`s soul but we can`t give up for our childrens sake. In the meantime lets listen to some good music.

  34. Jerry Hill

    I grew up in the '60's in So Cal, the Beach Boys were my musical fix,had to have a Pendleton shirt! I have learned to appreciate the intricate harmonies and the complexity of Brian's music, so much achieved through such suffering, but real Love and Mercy did bring him through. Blessings to you, Brian!

  35. Airin Eadni

    thank you. this is a great song.

  36. A Person

    Thank you Mike Love for this beautiful song...

  37. Owen Dureke

    Emotional. Thanx for Smile.

  38. Ryan Hunter

    Using the gospel choir was really an inspired choice! In the original studio recording it sounded more Cathedral-like...but this really warms up the song.

  39. Regan Fitzpatrick

    Anyone else see Gwen Stefani at 1:43?????

  40. Jon Doeringer

    Brian is one of a kind. The Beach Boys are somewhat replaceable. Even if it takes 40 black guys! (haha)

  41. jamesblond516

    God damn genius

  42. Joseph Jackson

    Brian was treated so bad by his dad and his cousin mike. Not the fact he was struggling producing music to keep the band going. And having critics always hounding him. Not the fact dealing with depression and end up with drug addiction. And everyone thinks that the others had a big part in his creations of his music . they only had little part in it. With out brian theres no beach boys . he created the sound and the songs . brian has a big place in my heart . and the rest of the beach boys . Brian thank you for the most best Memories with all your songs .

  43. luvegal83

    I'm 14 and you've helped me see myself and my life in a totally different way.Music has always been my escape from the world, it is what i would call my safe house.Fear and anxiety run my life but your music gives me the strength to fight it. You inspire me to want to be something more and that is something I will always cherish. Thank you

  44. The LassKicker

    Brian Wilson is good at singing and a songwriter

  45. James Chen

    The Clapper brought me here. Lovely movie

  46. John Cowperthwaite

  52. ANMOL SHARMA

    I was sittin' in a crummy movie
    With my hands on my chin
    All the violence that occurs
    Seems like we never win

    Love and mercy, that's what you need tonight
    So love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

    I was lying in my room
    And the news came on TV
    A lotta people out there hurtin'

    Love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

    And watching all the people there
    Oh, the loneliness in this world
    Well it's just not fair

    Hey, love and mercy, that's what we need tonight
    So love and mercy to you and your friends tonight
    Love and mercy, that's what you need tonight
    Love and mercy tonight
    Love and mercy tonight

  53. HeartlessGentleman

    This leads me to believe our singing ability is aligned with our inner vibration. He has come out of the other side here. His vocal chords even older than the Cocaine Tapes era. He nails his beautiful song.

  54. Bkkersey93

    He probably wrote this to lighten up memories of the Fire tape he won't let see daylight.

  55. Ryan Hunter

    This is a guy with a lot of love in him, you can tell...I feel sorry that he’s had some rough patches in life, but glad to see he came through the other side of it.

  56. Austin Gometz

    Thank you Brian. Your contribution to music will forever be appreciated and respected for ages to come.

  57. Allurecrete

    I heard he wrote this after hearing of the Death of John Lennon ?

  58. Brian Walsh

    Astounding! What a beautiful message by a beautiful man. You managed to package about 3,000 years of the best of human mores and 100+ years of American culture into a couple of minutes. Peace be yours, Brian, and thanks for the prophetic reminder of what we should be striving for! Brian

  59. Seth Taylor

    epic!!!

  60. Kurt Locke

    It is just for you!

  61. Sylvan De La Cruz

    I wanna listen to this over and over, but I'm more inspired to go play piano now and maybe write a new song.

  62. Kyle Taylor

    True American icon...def one of the best songs...

  63. dj0699

    His music is a tantalising glimpse into heaven

  70. doug strickland

    listening in November 2017 and absolutely love this song.  Brian Wilson is such a genius!

  71. armand duarte

    That movie touched my soul. Hang tough anybody

  72. Michael David

    Ive always preferred the live versions of Love And Mercy to the studio version. It sounds even better acoustically.

  73. Lawrence Evans

    Great song, great rendition.

  74. John Reinhardt

    Genius! One rarely gets the opportunity, in one lifetime , to experience TRUE genius up close and personal. Lucky me, I've experienced,enjoyed and been personally a witness to it three times, live, with Mr. Wilson gracefully showing me what TRUE genius is. For that I say thank you.

  75. MelloFello999

    Brian has such a wonderful band. So talented and supportive of Brian. I am so happy he created such a vast archive of music for us to enjoy. Great words, great melodies, beautiful harmonies.

  79. Cara Starr Hair

    This is the song that’s been playing in my head all day as I watch the news about the Las Vegas shooting. We need love and we need mercy and I wish I could wrap up every one of my friends in my arms tonight.

  80. lefkytheshin

    A love for BW's music brought me here, not some overrated zombie series.

  88. Hilton_Rockstar

    i cannot look at this man without wanting to cry, I know he's better now, with people around who actually love him, but to hear his story, all he went thru and endured, the good and bad, everything he sacrificed, all his ups and downs...just man...he's gotta be the strongest man i know. God bless that man. <3 #LoveAndMercy
