  • Mercy
    Why you gotta show up lookin' so good just to hurt me?
    Why you wanna stop this whole damn world from turnin'?
    Mercy
    Why you hangin' on so tight if this ain't workin'?
    Why you wanna stop this flame if it's still burnin'?
    'Cause it's still burnin'

    So if you're gonna break my heart, just break it
    And if you're gonna take your shot, then take it
    Take it
    If you made up your mind, then make it
    But make this fast
    If you ever loved me
    Have mercy

    If you go out tonight and get drunk and lonely
    Wind up home alone
    Please don't call me
    And say you miss me, no

    If you're gonna break my heart, just break it
    And if you're gonna take your shot, then take it
    Take it
    If you made up your mind, then make it
    But make this fast
    If you ever loved me
    Have mercy

    Whoa
    Oh, have mercy

    If you're gonna break my heart, just break it
    And if you're gonna take your shot, take it
    Take it
    Whoa, if you're gonna break my heart, just break it
    And if you're gonna take your shot, then take it
    Take it
    If you made up your mind, then make it
    Make this fast
    If you ever loved me
    Mm, if you ever loved me
    Have mercy
    Oh, have mercy
    Oh, have mercy
