VERSE 1

MIm SOL
You’ve got a hold of me
SIm LA
Don’t even know your power
MIm SOL
I stand a hundred feet
SIm LA
But I fall when I’m around you

MIm SOL
Show me an open door
SIm LA
Then you go and slam it on me
MIm SOL
I can’t take anymore
SIm LA
I’m saying baby

CHORUS
========
MIm SOL
Please have mercy on me
SIm LA
Take it easy on my heart
MIm SOL
Even though you don’t mean to hurt me
SIm LA
You keep tearing me apart

MIm SOL SIm LA
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart
MIm SOL SIm LA
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

I’d run through the night
SIm LA
Just to be near you baby
MIm SOL
Heart old and testified
SIm LA
Tell me that I’m not crazy
