Mercy Why you gotta show up lookin so good just to hurt me Why you wanna stop this whole damn world from turning Mercy Why you hanging on so tight if this ain't working Why you wanna stop this flame if it's still burning Cause it's still burning. 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 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 If you're gonna take your shot, take it Take it Oh 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 Mmmh if you ever loved me Have mercy Oh have mercy Oh have mercy Have mercy.
