No, I didn't see this one comin'
It suddenly snuck up on me
I can't say you didn't tell me so
I can't say you didn't warn me

Well I can't take the pain,
Knowing that I left you
And I can't bare the shame 
Of knowing I was wrong
But I'll take the blame for everything that I've done
But I can't take the pain of leaving you alone
leaving you alone

I was there when they accused you
But I guess I was too afraid
Not just once, and not just twice
But three times I denied your name 

Well I can't take the pain,
Knowing that I left you
And I can't bare the shame 
Of knowing I was wrong
But I'll take the blame for everything that I've done
But I can't take the pain of leaving you alone
leaving you alone

I never thought I'd get
Even a second chance
But you've given that, and so much more
And then for every time I ever did deny,
You asked me if I love you
You know I do, Lord

So I'm off to follow in your steps
It won't be easy, it's safe to say
Only two roads I can walk on down
The one less traveled is the one you paved

But I can't take the pain,
Knowing that I left you
And I can't bare the shame 
Of knowing I was wrong
But I'll take the blame for everything that I've done
But I can't take the pain of leaving you alone
leaving you alone

Lord, you took the pain
Even though I left you
And you took the shame, and you made it all your own
Why'd you take the blame for everything that I've done?
Lord, you took the pain, you and you alone

You and you alone.
