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

    This song in mine song beacuse I'm with this guy that loves me to daeth but I'm blameing him for my ex's mistakes and he don't like it. Kyle is trying to tell me that he would never do me like kevin did but I don't trust him and if I can't then he is going to leave and I don't wont that. I jsut get how you can love someone but make them pay for something that he did not do beacuse of ur ex's. I just hope I don't lose him.

    This song is obvious and self explanatory. He's talking about loving a girl who accuses him of things her exs did to hurt her. And he's just trying to tell her that he loves her and he'd do anything to prove that. But it's gone to the point where she's accused him too much of things he has nothing to do with, he can't take it anymore. So he's trying to get it in her head that she's gotta learn to trust him as him, not as her ex. If she chooses not to, then he'll leave 'cuz he can't take bein' blamed and made guilty for things he didn't do.
