Akon – Sorry, Blame It On Me lyrics

As life goes on I'm starting to learn more and more about responsibility
I realize everything I do is affecting the people around me
So I want to take this time out and apologize for things I have done
And things that have not occurred yet
And the things they don't want to take responsibility for

I'm sorry for the times I left you home
I was on the road and you were alone
I'm sorry for the times that I had to go
I'm sorry for the fact that I did not know
That you were sitting home just wishing we
Could go back to when it was just you and me
I'm sorry for the times I would neglect
I'm sorry for the times I disrespect

I'm sorry for the wrong things that I've done
I'm sorry I'm not always there for my sons
I'm sorry for the fact that I am not aware
That you can't sleep at night when I am not there
Because I am in the streets like everyday
Sorry for the things that I did not say
Like how you are the best thing in my world
And how I am so proud to call you my girl

I understand that there are some problems
And I am not too blind to know
All the pain you kept inside you
Even though you might not show
If I can't apologize for being wrong
Then it's just a shame on me
I'll be the reason for your pain and you can put the blame on me

You can put the blame on me [4x]
Said you can put the blame on me [3x]
You can put the blame on me

Sorry for the things that he put you through
And all the times you didn't know what to do
Sorry that you had to go and sell those packs
Just trying to stay busy till you heard from Dad
And you would rather be home with all your kids
As one big family with love and bliss
And even though Pops treated us like kings

He got a second wife and you didn't agree
He got up and left you there all alone
I'm sorry that you had to do it on your own
I'm sorry that I went and added to your grief
I'm sorry that your son was once a thief
I'm sorry that I grew up way too fast
I wish I would've listened and not be so bad
I'm sorry your life turned out this way
I'm sorry the feds came and took me away


I'm sorry that it took so long to see
They were dead wrong trying to put it on me
I'm sorry that it took so long to speak
But I was on tour with Gwen Stefani
I'm sorry for the hand that she was dealt
For the embarrassment that she felt
Just a little young girl trying to have fun
Her daddy should never let her out that young
I'm sorry for Club Zen getting shut down
I hope they manage better next time around
How was I to know she was underage
Enter 21 you know the club they say
Why doesn't anybody wanna take blame
Verizon back out disgracing my name
I'm just a singer trying to entertain
Because I love my fans I'll take that blame
Even though the blame's on you [3x]
I'll take that blame from you

And you can put that blame on me [2x]
You can put that blame on me
And you can put that blame on me

    Akon is apologizing for things he has done, hasn't done, will do, and things nobody else will take blame for. He had to be responsible when the people in charge wouldn't do their jobs. The first part is talking to his wife and saying sorry for the times he wasn't there for her and his son. The second part is to his mom. It's talking about when his dad divorced his mom and left her to take care of the kids. He's sorry that he had to turn into a thief and that he got taken away by the government which wasn't his fault. The third part is to an underage girl that got admitted to a club somehow. He should not be blamed and her dad, like Akon said, shouldn't have let her out that young. He's sorry for the embarrassment she felt and for everything else. Even though he's taking the credit he doesn't feel like he should have to do it, but he's doing it for his fans. This is pretty cool to me.

    Akon is just not to be blamed for what happened in Trinidad. Why that 14-years-old girl was there? Shouldn't that club admission be allowed only at 21 and over? So how could he know she was under 21? And that girl looked as she was really enjoying Akon touching all her body, isn't it? Just look at the photos! Please, don't mess it up that much. The girl enjoyed it a lot. Maybe she only regrets not to have had complete s* with Akon!
    And I'm sure his mother is proud of her son. And his wife too (if not, why doesn't she just divorce?). Please, be aware that all women choose their husbands. So don't put the blame on the husbands! Every woman can choose her life, cuz women aren't all that fool as a few women are!
    Akon, you're great. Your music is great, and your s* is likely to be the same!

    Dedicated to the women in his life, the artist is saying maybe there is something he cud have done to prevent their pain so he can take the blame. But the reality is that he is not to blame for the underage gal he met in a club, now that everybody knows what happened they blame him for it but he cudnt have known since the club clearly states no under 21. He is just humbling himself because he needs to prove himself to his fans that he is the respectable person they love.! Akon this song is great!
