John Legend – How Can I Blame You lyrics

[Verse 1]
I should've known when the cop told me I'm goin' too fast
He told me
Speed like that and it's bound to be a hell of a crash
He told me
Better late than you don't get there, do the math
Oh you oughta be grateful
For what you have

[Pre-Chorus]
Well what if I refuse to learn?
I see a flame, I wanna get burned

[Chorus]
How can I blame you
For showin' up at the party?
Lookin' through me in that way
Saw somethin' inside of me break
Saw me wanna make a mistake
How can I blame you
For takin' over my daydreams?
I wanna scream it, I'm sorry
But I can't 'cause I'm long overdue
Oh I wanna blame it on you

[Verse 2]
Why's it hard for a man to be satisfied?
Oh, I got one glimpse of the green grass on the other side
'Cause it's all been comin' to this and goddamn I won't be denied
Oh I'm gonna take one more chance tonight

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, what if I refuse to learn?
I see the flame grow, I gotta get burned

[Chorus]
How can I blame you
For showin' up at the party?
Lookin' through me in that way
Saw somethin' inside of me break
Saw me wanna make a mistake
How can I blame you
For takin' over my daydreams?
I wanna scream it, I'm sorry
But I can't 'cause I'm long overdue
Oh I wanna blame it on you

[Bridge]
Did I know my weakness?
Did I mount all my defenses?
Did I tell you to leave me alone?
How can I blame you?
You saw somethin' inside of me break
You saw me wanna make a mistake

[Chorus]
How can I blame you?
You saw somethin' inside of me break
You saw me wanna make a mistake
How can I blame you
For takin' over my daydreams?
I wanna scream it, I'm sorry
But I can't 'cause I'm long overdue
Oh I wanna blame it on you
I wanna blame it on you
I wanna blame it on you, yeah
