It’s my sister’s birthday and I am poor so the best present I can give her is the money of some of my followers, maybe, if you feel like it

Today my sister is 28 and that means she is an adult and adults need money and she worked very hard on her album so what does this add up to? It means you should buy her album or even download it for free, which would be cool for your wallet, but it also means I’m gonna glare at you a little bit in a kind of friendly way

Mercy is a very talented folk artist based in Nashville and she’s working very hard so she can keep making music and if you OPEN YOUR HEART and PUT ON SOME HEADPHONES you will love her as much as everyone else does. I mean really, you gotta get with the times, do what the cool kids are doing

Also you can follow her on tumblr but she hardly ever updates her blog because she has other, more important things to do I guess

Happy birthday Mercy, you’re really old and I miss having you around to drive me places

Leaves Always Turn Green (new demo!) - Mercy Bell

This song I wrote inspired by my friends Mike & Tiffany Sanders who requested a song about “hope”. :)


Sittin in an airport bar I’m
drinking the thousand miles between us
ain’t nothin’ a beer
can’t solve.

A one way ticket
to some money I know I need it
but it’s a life that ain’t worth living
it ain’t nothin to sing about.

The man beside me
sees me sad
asks if I need a friend.
He pulls up a chair
and buys him drink
says “I got an ear to bend.”

“Don’t you worry
Ain’t nothin’s worth your worry
the sparrows keep returnin’
from Mexico each year.

Keep on keepin’
your eyes on that horizon,
in my 60 years of livin’
the leaves always turn green.”

Says “I’ve fought my
share of battles
cancer, drugs, and cheaters
they’re devils in disguise.

But the sun comes up, and the sky is blue
Beatles songs sound just as new
if you can only manage to keep alive.

And I know it seems
like there ain’t no tomorrow
and hope is in a drought.
but you’ll be surprised
if you open your eyes
things to sing about.”



A song dedicated to everyone I loathe but society says I have to hang out with.

“Who Said We Were Friends? (DEMO!)” lyrics & music by Mercy Bell
Demo video directed by Sara Olivia Moore

Got your invitation she’s bringing me along
Yeah it’s been a while since y'all were all involved
I should just be friends with you
Jesus Loves us both the same
Mea culpa is a latin phrase and it means I’ll take the blame

Folks say you’re in love with her
She’s the one that got away
When she kissed me at the last party
Your face turned deathly gray

You give me booze from your private stash
And invite me to watch the game
But getting closer to me won’t
Get you closer to my babe

Who said we were friends?
Brothers, buddies, guys?
I’ve been watching you undress
My baby with your eyes
I might be a nice fella
I’d buy a beer for this whole place
Mea Culpa, here’s a gulpa, my drink in your face.

Guess I’m kinda backwards
I bet that in LA
People’s exes go get drinks
Giggle, laugh, and play
My mom, my shrink, my preacher
Say let go of yesterday
But when pigs can fly, and I catch mama high,
Is the day that we can hang


All those hugs you give her
they last a little too long
but all those tales she tells about you
I might just tell your mom
