In my eyes she can do no wrong
In her mind I'm a little child
She's the words in my favorite song
But to her I am juvenile

I'm the love she will never love
I'm the friend that she calls a friend
And if I'm not the careful crush
I'll be one heart, one man and then

Mercy, Mercy have on me
Leave me broken but leave me be
Distance hurts a thousand miles
So stay where you are for a little while

And Mercy, Mercy sing my song
Lyrics always felt so wrong
Sell my soul to change the rhyme
Make you wanting and make you mine

In her mind I'm a troubled soul
I've pretended and played it cool
There's a place where I don't belong
And myself I have made a fool

Mercy, Mercy have on me
Leave me broken but leave me be
Distance hurts a thousand miles
So stay where you are for a little while

And Mercy, Mercy sing my song
Lyrics always felt so wrong
Sell my soul to change the rhyme
Make you wanting and make you mine

    I think it's about being in love with your best friend but you can't really do anything about it because you don't want to jeopardize the friendship. I think the man in this song gets to be the shoulder for her to lean on whenever she is in need but it ends there.
