Official Music Video

And to think, we've only just got over his video for 'Stitches'!

Throw your mind back to when you saw Shawn getting beaten and pushed to the ground by an invisible force in 'Stitches'. You can only hope that his latest video will feature him skipping through a field and eating delicious cakes, after that. Well, that is literally all you can do - hope.

After all, in the video for 'Mercy', Mr Mendes tries his hardest not to drown in a sinking car. Skipping between this and scenes of him playing various instruments, increasingly in anger (leading to him smashing a guitar) many of his fans have labelled this as a "masterpiece".

While we're still struggling with the fact that Shawn is always getting hurt in his music videos, the video does end on a happy note - SPOILER ALERT - when he escapes the submerged motor. Could the 18-year old Canadian be any more deep or metaphorical?!

Shawn Mendes - '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 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 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
And 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

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
Begging you, begging you, please, baby
I'm begging you for mercy, mercy
Ooh, I'm begging you, I'm begging you
