[Intro]

Em G Bm A (x2)


[Verse 1]

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


[Pre-Chorus]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse 2]

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


[Pre-Chorus]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Bridge]

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


[Chorus]

             Em         G
Please have mercy on me
        Bm          A
Take it easy on my heart
                       Em             G
Even though you don't mean to hurt me
          Bm          A
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
                   Em     G     Bm      A
I'm begging you for mercy, mercy on my heart


[Outro]

Em G Bm A
