Do I remind you
Of the pain
That he put you
Through, girl
Is that the reason
I'm to blame
Before I do it
Is it because he
Treated you badly
I always stand accused
Protecting yourself
From somebody else
I'm not
Who's hurting you girl

And it's
Killing me girl
Knowing you
Compare me to him
Always guilty
Before the sin
I can't win
I can't win no
I'll do anything
To prove I love you
Baby girl
But I refuse to
Pay for something
I didn't do
I love you, girl
But I refuse to stay
Paying for his mistakes

He left a scar
Across your heart
I understand, girl
Don't let his wrongs
Tear us apart
Cause girl
I'm your man

Just because he did
You swear
I'm cheating
You think
I just don't care
Why must I do time
For another man's crime
Girl you know
That ain't fair

And it's
Killing me girl
Knowing you
Compare me to him
Always guilty
Before the sin
I can't win
No I can't win
I'll do anything
To prove I love you
Baby girl
But I refuse to
Pay for something
I didn't do
I love you, girl
But I refuse to stay
Paying
For his mistakes

I know
He did you wrong
But tell me what does
That have to do with me
Trying to show you
Something real
Figure out
What is going on
Before you look up
And I'll be gone
I'll do anything
To prove I love you
Baby girl
But I refuse
To pay for something
I didn't do, girl
I love you
And I love you
I love you

I'll do anything
To prove I love you
Baby girl but I refuse
To pay for something
I didn't do, no
I love you, girl
But I refuse to stay
Paying
For his mistakes

    Really The song is about him he can't take being blamed for her exes and he wants her to understand that if she doesn't stop blaming him for her exes mistakes he'd have to take a stand and leave. I have been in this situation before many times actually. The only way to solve it and to earn her trust is to not leave her. I didn't do it many times and the relationship I'm in right now I fixed it I stayed when no one else would I earned her trust. What most guys tend to not understand is that a girl wants him to stay no matter what it is whether she's blaming him for the past or pushing him to the edge the only thing to do is to stay and show her that no matter what she does you'd stay with her.

    I feel like this is my song, I've been dateing this girl for five months. She has had a bad past with relationships. She got pregnant with this dude at the age 22. They were only going out for like three months and she was pregnant. They got married cause it was the right think and then find out later it was a mistake. She says he did her wrong and he was a asshole. He would spend her money on strip clubs and he turned to be different ever since there daughter was born. They devoiced and she was proveing her ex husband that she could do it on her own. Every relationship she had after that she would ruined them if it got too seriouse. I worked with a friend witched dated her for six months. We were would work together or chill on smoke breaks. He once told me that he didn't know if he could be a daddy but he was in love with this girl. Six months later he told her that he loved her, she broke up with him. She got scared and ran. I never understood why they broke up because she was a sweet girl and he was a cool homie. He was just a cool guy, I never understood it. Well a year later she needed a second job for some extra cash. She was cool with my boss cause she use to work for the same company and she was the best back in the day. Well me and her work together and we kinda just fall for eachother. Feb 15th we became boyfriend and girlfriend, I got so many wonderfull memorys for the first three months. I could tell you storys but anyways. We feel in love, ishe told me she loved me and I was different. I should her love, passion. Whitch she never had, I brought her flowers and surpises on are aniverasry. I would leave her notes of my love and prove to her that I was a real man. We wanted to marry and be with eachother. Everything was so right but then she got scared. She would pick fights and be pissed if I wasn't there all the time. She would be pissed if I didn't text her or call her right back. She would be pissed if I didn't see her for lunch or text her if I was working. She went crazy, lol. 4 month she told me she had bipolar and it all made since. It wasn't just that but all the guys do her wrong and she was scared I would leave her or cheat on her. I loved her so much I would never do any of that. She self sabash relationships. That what she did to my homie. I past the three month curse and I thought I was in but the 5 month she couldn't control her bipolar anymore. She got scared and ened it. Cause of her past relationships. She told me once that she use to take medication for it but then stop takeing it after she got preganat, I have my own theroy of way her marraige went bad. Since I'm so good to her she has to ruin it cause she scared ill cheat or leave her. I wish I can prove that I'm her man and ill never do her wrong.
