That Wasn't Me

Album: Bear Creek (2012)
  • Hang on, just hang on for a minute
    I've got something to say
    I'm not asking you to move on or forget it
    But these are better days
    To be wrong all along and admit is not amazing grace
    But to be loved like a song you remember
    Even when you've changed

    Tell me did I go on a tangent?
    Did I lie through my teeth?
    Did I cause you to stumble on your feet?
    Did I bring shame on my family?
    Did it show when I was weak?
    Whatever you see, that wasn't me
    That wasn't me, that wasn't me

    When you're lost you will toss every lucky coin you'll ever trust
    And you'll hide from your god like he never turns his back on us
    And you'll fall all the way to the bottom and land on your own knife
    And you'll learn who you are even if it doesn't take your life

    Tell me did I go on a tangent?
    Did I lie through my teeth?
    Did I cause you to stumble on your feet?
    Did I bring shame on my family?
    Did it show when I was weak?
    Whatever you see, that wasn't me
    That wasn't me, that wasn't me

    But I want you to know that you'll never be alone
    I wanna believe do I make myself a blessing to everyone I meet
    When you fall I will get you on your feet
    Do I spend time with my family?
    Did it show when I was weak?
    When that's what you see, that will be me
    That will be me, that will be me
    That will be me Writer/s: Brandi M. Carlile, Timothy Jay Hanseroth, Phillip John Hanseroth
