Well I'm calling you
'Cause you deserve to know
You are not the reason that I had to go,
Late at night in these hotel rooms
I think of all I've lost,
What I've put you through

And if I knew the reason
I would tell you why somehow
The feeling slipped away
I only did what I had to do
Not 'cause I wanted to

I've got a guilty heart
And a troubled mind
No matter where I go
You're never far behind
I'd like to think 
That you've forgiven me
But forgiveness ain't enough
To wash my conscience clean

Oh and if I knew the reason 
I would tell you why somehow 
The feeling slipped away
I only did what I had to do
Not 'cause I wanted to

I only did what I had to do
Not 'cause I wanted to
