have mercy on me lyrics – jj heller

i’m tired of being afraid
i’m wondering how i got this way
i’m trying to remember what life was like before
panic moved in without even knocking on the door

have mercy on me
i’m not who i used to be
have mercy on me
jesus, please

i’ve been praying and asking you to take it all away
you never do exactly what i say
you see me from the outside, a lover looking in
but all i see is danger moving underneath my skin


i know it’s not because i don’t love you enough
it’s not because i’m weak, it’s how you choose to speak
to me
