Because of you
Kelly Clarkson
I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did
You fell so hard
Iīve learned the hard way, to never let it get that far

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I donīt get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And itīs not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know thatīs weakness in your eyes
Iīm forced to fake a smile, a laugh
Every day of my life
My heart canīt possibly break
When it wasnīt even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I donīt get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry
Every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry
In the middle of the night
For the same damn thing


Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I donīt get hurt
Because of you
I tried my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I donīt know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
Iīm ashamed of my life because itīs empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
