Lewis Capaldi – Mercy lyrics
[Verse 1]
For every second you been talking
I've been try'na count the lines around your face
'Cause I don't know if I'll ever be this close again

[Pre-Chorus]
I feel like I'm just wasting time
Before you pull the trigger
It's the drawing of the line
It's my ghost you're gonna give up
Got your made up mind
It hurts to see you're alright
When I'm not alright
So if you're calling it a night

[Chorus]
Oh please have, have mercy
Have mercy on me, you’re breaking my heart
Oh please have, have mercy
Have mercy on me, I’m falling apart
Have mercy, my heart

[Verse 2]
I felt you slip away so slowly
I lost my grip a little more each time we touched
I’ve got no hope I guess I'll never get it back again

[Pre-Chorus]
Felt like I was just wasting time
Before you pulled the trigger
It’s the drawing of the line
It’s my ghost you’re going to give up
Got your made up mind
It hurts to see you’re alright
When I’m not alright
So if you’re calling it a night

[Chorus]
Oh please have, have mercy
Have mercy on me, you’re breaking my heart
Oh please have, have mercy
Have mercy on me, I’m falling apart
And I just don’t know how we got
So wrong, for so long
Oh please have, have mercy
Have mercy on me, mercy my heart

[Bridge]
Somehow I can’t let go
But I know I’ve been holding on too long
Somehow I can’t let go
But I know I’ve been holding on too long

[Chorus]
Oh please have, have mercy
Have mercy on me, you’re breaking my heart
Oh please have, have mercy
Have mercy on me, I’m falling apart
And I just don’t know how we got
So wrong, for so long
Oh please have, have mercy
Have mercy on me, mercy my heart
Have mercy my heart
