[Intro]

Em Em G G Bm Bm A A (x2)


[Verse 1]

Em Em G G
You've got a hold of me
Bm Bm A A
Don't even know your power
Em Em G G
I stand a hundred feet
Bm Bm A A
But I fall when I'm around you


[Pre-Chorus]

Em Em G G
Show me an open door
Bm Bm A A
Then you go and slam it on me
Em Em G G
I can't take anymore
Bm Bm A A
I'm saying baby


[Chorus]

Em Em G G
Please have mercy on me
Bm Bm A A
Take it easy on my heart
Em Em G G
Even though you don't mean to hurt me
Bm Bm A A
You keep tearing me apart
Em Em G G Bm Bm A A
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart
Em Em G G Bm Bm A A
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart


[Verse 2]

Em Em G G
I'd run through the night
Bm Bm A A
Just to be near you baby
Em Em G G
Heart old and testified
Bm Bm A A
Tell me that I'm not crazy


[Pre-Chorus]

Em Em G G
I'm not asking for a lot
Bm Bm A A
Just that you're honest with me
Em Em G G
My pride is all I got
Bm Bm A A
I'm saying baby


[Chorus]

Em Em G G
Please have mercy on me
Bm Bm A A
Take it easy on my heart
Em Em G G
Even though you don't mean to hurt me
Bm Bm A A
You keep tearing me apart
Em Em G G
Would you please have mercy on me
Bm Bm A A
I'm a puppet on your string
Em Em G G
And even though you got good intentions
Bm Bm A A
I need you to set me free
Em Em G G Bm Bm A A
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart
Em Em G G Bm Bm A A
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart


[Bridge]

G G Bm7 Bm7
Consuming all the air inside my lungs
D D A A
Ripping all the skin from off my bones
G G Bm7 Bm7
I'm prepared to sacrifice my life
D D A A
I would gladly do it twice
G G Bm7 Bm7
Consuming all the air inside my lungs
D D A A
Ripping all the skin from off my bones
G G Bm7 Bm7
I'm prepared to sacrifice my life
D D A A
I would gladly do it twice


[Chorus]

Em Em G G
Please have mercy on me
Bm Bm A A
Take it easy on my heart
Em Em G G
Even though you don't mean to hurt me
Bm Bm A A
You keep tearing me apart
Em Em G G
Would you please have mercy on me
Bm Bm A A
I'm a puppet on your string
Em Em G G
And even though you got good intentions
Bm Bm A A
I need you to set me free
Em Em G G Bm Bm A A
I'm begging you for mercy, mercy on my heart
Em Em G G Bm Bm A A
I'm begging you for mercy, mercy on my heart
