I Don't Blame You

Album: You Are Free (2003)

  • Last time I saw you, you were on stage
    Your hair was wild, your eyes were red
    And you were in a rage
    You were swinging your guitar around.
    Cause they wanted to hear that sound
    But you didn't want to play.
    And I don't blame you.

    I don't blame you.

    Been around the world, in many situations
    Been inside many heads in different positions
    But you never wanted them that way.
    What a cruel price you thought that you had to pay.
    And that for all that shit on stage.

    But it never made sense to them anyway,
    Could you imagine if when they turned their backs
    They were only scratching their heads.
    Cause you simply deserve the best.
    And I don't blame you

    They said you were the best,
    But then they were only kids
    Then you would recall the deadly houses you grew up in
    Just because they knew your name,
    Doesn't mean they know from where you came
    What a sad trick you thought that you had to play.
    But I don't blame you

    They never owned it
    And you never owed it to them anyway.

    I don't blame you. Writer/s: ANTHONY RYAN LESLIE, COREY LATIF WILLIAMS
