Mercy

Slide me down, I bit my lip
I hit my head on the ground.
Quite a grip, just your fingertips
Make my head go round.

Can’t catch my breath, I bit down.
Taste the blood in my mouth.
Quite a grip, just your finger tips.
Oh have mercy now.

Oh, please have mercy,
A little mercy on me now.
Please have mercy,
A little mercy on my now.

So easily let go.
Nothing left to show
But the truth that lies inside me.
Do you even know that you touch my soul
And it absolutely frightens me? Inside me, yeah.

Who would’ve thought I’d be overwrought,
I’d slip and hit the ground?
I skinned my knee but you kiss it for me.
Oh my head goes round.
Can’t catch my breath, I bit down.
Taste the blood in my mouth
Like a wine to sip, your sweet lips
Have no mercy now.

Oh, please have mercy,
A little mercy on me now.
Please have mercy,
A little mercy on me now.
