I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I, 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'll 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 a moments 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'll 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 cry, 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 old thing

Because of you
I'll never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to stay on the safe side, so I don't get hurt

Because of you
I tried 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
