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


[Pre-Chorus]
Em       G             Bm
  Show me an open door
                 A            Em
Then you go and slam it on me

I can't take anymore
           A
I'm saying baby


[Chorus]

Please have mercy on me
        Bm         A
Take it easy on my heart
                      Em              G

Would you please have mercy,

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


[Pre-Chorus]
Em              G          Bm
  I'm not asking for a lot
                 A              Em
Just that you're honest with me

My pride is all I got

I'm saying baby

I'm a puppet on your string
                        Em              G
And even though you got good intentions
       Bm            A
I need you to set me free
                      Em   G
Would you please have mercy,
     Bm     A
mercy on my heart
                      Em   G
Would you please have mercy,
     Bm     A
mercy on my heart


[Bridge]

I'm prepared to sacrifice my life

I would gladly do it twice

I would gladly do it twice

You keep tearing me apart
                      Em          G
Would you please have mercy on me
      Bm              A
I'm a puppet on your string
                        Em              G
And even though you got good intentions
       Bm            A
I need you to set me free
                    Em    G     Bm     A
I'm begging you for mercy, mercy on my heart
