Reba Mcentire – Because Of You lyrics

(feat. Kelly Clarkson)

[Reba:]
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

[Reba & Kelly:]
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
[Reba:]
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
[Reba & Kelly:]
Because of you
I am afraid

[Kelly:]
I loose my way
And it's not too long (before you point it out)[Reba & Kelly]
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness [in your eyes][Reba & Kelly]
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

[Reba & Kelly:]
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
[Reba:]
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
[Reba & Kelly:]
Because of you
I am afraid

[Reba:]
I watched you die
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
(I watched you die...)[Kelly]
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
(I was too young for you to lean on me...)[Kelly]
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
(You never saw me...)[Kelly]
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

[Reba:]
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 [Reba & Kelly]
I am afraid

[Reba:]
Because of you...
[Kelly:]
Mmmmmm... Oooooh...
[Reba:]
Because of you...
[Kelly:]
Mmmmmm... Oooooh...

    Some young woman watched an adult woman (mom aunt sister) in her life suffer and die from an abusive unhappy relationship. Iv been there myself for 10 yrs. Because I loved him and still do and always will but one day I said the hell with him and now am in a wonderful relationship and no matter the overwhelming love I feel for my ex I will never put myself in that sad misery again. There is good men in the world.

    I love this song because it tells a story, of a woman being mistreated. And how she finds her strength in herself to get away before its too late.
    I think all women should be treated with respect, no matter what they have done. And if your in one of those relationships where your boyfriendhusband has threatend or has attempted to beat you, then that's when you know it is time to get out. Find someone who is willing to care for you and not hurt you. And your guaranteed to be as happy as you need to be.
