Mercy
Tabbed byJessica
TuningStandard
CapoNone
VERSE:

G                         Cadd9-G
Simplicity, does not come easy
            Cadd9-G             D
When you’re dreaming of being someone else
    G                C9   G
And grace you see is fleeting
            C9   G        D
When you’re bleeding your innerself


CHORUS:

     C           G
Have Mercy on me please
     C                G-D
Have Mercy, I’m on my knees
          C                 Em
I’m being broken again and again
                C               D
I’ll keep being broken until I remain 
Cadd9 
Open


VERSE:

            G
When you're locked away,
         Cadd9-G           Cadd9-G
Fighting shadows, constant battles
 D
Trying to feel safe
              G             Cadd9-G 
When your own armor starts killing you,
           Cadd9-G         D
Cause it’s causing you to sink beneath its weight


CHORUS:

         C                G
Call for mercy, won’t you please
          C                  G-D
Call for mercy, get on your knees
             C                  Em
You’re being broken, again and again
                  C                   D
You’ll keep being broken, until you remain Open


            C   
So feel the pain, give into it
     Em
Cry till you crack, that’s how the light gets in
         Am
Set your weapons on the ground
             C
Until you’re naked and trembling now
             G                         D
And when you think you can’t stand any more


CHORUS:

     C                    G
Give mercy to someone in need
     C                 G-D
Give mercy, don't you see
                    C                  Em
Life will break our hearts, again and again
                  C               D
We’ll keep being broken until we remain 
     C
Open
          Em
Can’t you see
       C           Em
I have broken wide open
                C           Em
Let yourself be broken wide open
       C *[LET RING]
I have broken open
