Lyrics

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
I've 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 don't 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 it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake a smile, a laugh
Every day of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't 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 don't 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 that 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 don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you

Ellie says...
this should be deleted from the first dance list!

Amber says...
this would be a great first dance...if you were in a really controlling relationship i guess...terrible choice and needs to be removed for sure...

Lisa says...
Wow I love this song but not at a wedding.

Desiree says...
yeah this is not a wedding song.

jen says...
This song is about a woman who was cheated on! why would anyoneuse it as awedding song...regardless of how good a song it is

Private User says...
LOL! Somone made a huuuuge mistake!

Bri says...
I think we get it guys. It's not a good first dance song.

Holly says...
Actually, this song isn't about a woman who is being cheated on. It was written by Kelly Clarkson about her parents. When Reba covered it, they made the video about a relationship. Definitely not a wedding song.
