Because of You.

I was never a HUGE Kelly Clarkson fan but she's been growing on me....and damn if I don't love this song.

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

[Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
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 the same damn thing

[Chorus}
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
Because of you I am afraid

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 try my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don’t know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I’m ashamed of my life because it’s empty
Because of you I am afraid

Because of you

She didn't have a hit in the 80s. therefore, I don't listen to her.

Happy Thanksgiving, all!

A few months ago?? Wow, you're way more hip than I am, since it's just now crossing MY radar.

Jen said...

Yeah, you do that, Sparky. Tell me how "free" it really is. =-)

SparkyDiva said...

uhh...yeah...my fortune was 'you'll be paying us $19.99 for me to tell you that ...' and then they asked for money. LOL

Jen said...

Oh. I'm deleting them then.

Hear hear Fred! LOL

Clarkson is growing on me too - a friend (ex) sent me a couple songs and they are nice. I highly doubt that she writes her own material though.

That is a bummer of a song. It's also a bummer of a video. :(
