Mercenary Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

He's crying inside
Can't tear the hurt out
Life's rushing by
Like an old movie backdrop

The radio's blasting
Song after song
About the big romance
That went all wrong

She says
"I just wanted to make you
I never meant to break you"

He says
"Have some mercy on me
Do you have to be such a mercenary?"

She's scheming inside
Can't stop the wheels turning
Been through it before
There's no profit or learning

She's not really bad
Just a gold-plated heart
So scared to be alone
It rips her apart

She says
"I just wanted to make you
I never meant to break you"

He says
"Have some mercy on me
Do you have to be such a mercenary?"

She says
"I just wanted to make you
I never meant to break you"

He says
"Have some mercy on me
Do you have to be that way?

I just wanted to make you
I never meant to break you

He says
"Have some mercy on me
Do you have to be such a mercenary?"
