Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes has released "Mercy" on 18 August 2016. Co-writtten by Mendes, Ilsey Juber, Danny Parker and Teddy Geiger, "Mercy" is the second single from his second studio album, "Illuminate" (2016). The music video of the song was released on 21 September 2016 directed by Jay Martin, featuring Mendes singing in two different scenes, one with him drowning in a locked car in the sea while the other showing him performing the song with instruments.

On 3 December 2016, Mendes performed "Mercy" on Saturday Night Live and tweeted, "Never been so emotionally consumed in a song in my life. Thank you @nbcsnl. Thank you guys for getting me here." Personally speaking, it is an amazing song and I think Shawn Mendes has done a great job singing it! What do you think of "Mercy"? Do enjoy yourself watching the music video if you have not already done so and let me know your thoughts in the comment box below. Till then, au revoir!


Mercy lyrics

You've got a hold of me
Don't even know your power
I stand a hundred feet
But I fall when I'm around ya

Show me an open door
Then you go and slam it on me
I can't take anymore
I'm saying baby

Please have mercy on me
Take it easy on my heart
Even though you don't mean to hurt me
You keep tearing me apart
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

I'd drive through the night
Just to be near you baby
Heart open, testify
Tell me that I'm not crazy

I'm not asking for a lot
Just that you're honest with me
My pride is all I got
I'm saying baby

Please have mercy on me
Take it easy on my heart
Even though you don't mean to hurt me
You keep tearing me apart
Would you please have mercy on me
I'm a puppet on your strings
And even though you got good intentions
I need you to set me free
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

Consuming all the air inside my lungs
Ripping all the skin from off my bones
I'm prepared to sacrifice my life
I would gladly do it twice
Consuming all the air inside my lungs
Ripping all the skin from off my bones
I'm prepared to sacrifice my life
I would gladly do it twice

Oh, please have mercy on me
Take it easy on my heart
Even though you don't mean to hurt me
You keep tearing me apart
Would you please have mercy on me
I'm a puppet on your string
And even though you got good intentions
I need you to set me free
I'm begging you for mercy, mercy (on my heart)
I'm begging you, begging you please baby
I'm begging you for mercy, mercy (on my heart)
Oh, I'm begging you, I'm begging you, yeah
