Reba McEntire
Because of you

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 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 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
