Shawn Mendes – Mercy (Acoustic) (Illuminate Deluxe Album)


Ripping all the skin from off my bones
I’m saying, baby…
I would gladly do it twice
I’m prepared to sacrifice my life
You keep tearing me apart
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart?
Even though you don’t mean to hurt me
[Intro: Humming]
Begging you, begging you, please, baby
[Verse 1]
Ooh, I’m begging you, I’m begging you

Just that you’re honest with me
[Outro]
I need you to set me free
I’m not asking for a lot
[Chorus 1]
You keep tearing me apart
And even though you got good intentions
And my pride is all I got

Then you go and slam it on me
Tell me that I’m not crazy

Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart?
Consuming all the air inside my lungs
Heart open, testify
I would gladly do it twice
Just to be near you, baby
Would you please have mercy on me?

[Verse 2]
Take it easy on my heart

[Bridge]
Please have mercy on me
And even though you got good intentions
I’m saying, baby…
I stand a hundred feet
I’m a puppet on your string

Take it easy on my heart
Please have mercy on me
Would you please have mercy on me?
But I fall when I’m around you
Take it easy on my heart
I’m prepared to sacrifice my life

Please have mercy on me
I’d drive through the night
I’m begging you for mercy, mercy
Ripping all the skin from off my bones
[Chorus 2]
I’m begging you for mercy, mercy
Consuming all the air inside my lungs
[Chorus 3]
Even though you don’t mean to hurt me
I need you to set me free
[Pre-Chorus 1]
Show me an open door
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart?
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart?
Even though you don’t mean to hurt me
Don’t even know your power

I’m a puppet on your strings
You keep tearing me apart
[Pre-Chorus 2]
You’ve got a hold on me
I can’t take anymore
