Shawn Mendes: Mercy Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2016
Don't even know your power
I stand a hundred feet
But I fall when I'm around you
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...

It can also mean he is pleading for mercy whilst on tour, like he is just saying "give me a break" or "please have mercy" as he said in an interview.

In my eyes, the song is about a guys loving a girl and her not loving him back. It's unrequited love. When it says he's a puppet on her strings- he will do anything for her basically. When it says she has no idea of the pain, maybe she doesn't know he feels this way or that it hurts him so bad. The song is him asking for mercy from her, he can't let her go.

He has a lot of pain from the relationship that he is in now but it isn't physical pain; its emotional pain. His heart can't handle it anymore even though he wants her.

I think it is about a girl who has really hurt him a lot and although she keep on hurting him but he can not get over her so he asking to have 'mercy' on him or to take it easy on him .In the song he is saying that she hurt him so much he felt like someone was punching him but in the end when he look at the mirror he realizes that he was not physically hurt but emotionally hurt.

I think it's about a girl that hurt him and she's hurting him more and more. And Shawn is asking her to have mercy
