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 everyday 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 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 Because of you
