about

This is one of those rare songs that just comes along and writes itself. I wrote this song in about twenty minutes one morning and this recording was made just a few days later. It was not very long after the Bastille Day terrorist attack in France, which was the latest in a series of sad and cowardly terror attacks in France. With this on my mind, I was looking for a French title for the song and "merci" came to mind. My limited knowledge of the French language told me this word meant "thank you", which of course was not really appropriate. But after googling it, I learned that the word came into early French as "mercit" or "merci" with much the same meaning as was later passed on to our Modern English word mercy, which means "kindness or pity shown to someone." And that summed up exactly the sentiment that seemed to be so needed at the time - Mercy.
