All these years of hearing this song, it seemed chilling. Only to read the lyrics to know it was about taking the life. Wow!!

Gabriel's music is timeless for its penetrating melodies and purposeful messages, like Mozart or Bach.

It's a dedication to Anne Sexton's work, a poet who battled depression for many years and took her own life in 1974. Mercy Street was the title of her play in 1969.

Very mystical song. I love the electronics and aqustic melodies. Which reminded me of the song "Red Rain" with its soulful rhythm.

As the sun comes up over the ocean, the purples turn to pinks as I glide along the warm southern breeze.

Gabriel's sonic sense is amazing in this song. What an atmosphere.

Gabriel wrote this song about the poet Anne Sexton. He is acquainted with her and was inspired by her and her poetry.

Song is so mellow, and so well blended. The chord changes are vintage Peter Gabriel.
