  • The bigger picture
    I'll be with ya, many years from now
    So go your own way, do your own thing
    I don't see it working out

    Gave permission, to take the easy way out
    Bad decision, 'cause I'm here missing you now

    But I can't be mad
    For loving you that way
    I can't be mad
    I gave you my heart to break
    Can drown in sorrow, try to numb the pain
    But I can't be mad because I'm the one to blame

    Seeing pictures, and I ain't with ya
    No longer you and I
    You don't hurt like you should
    And it seems you're all good
    Honestly I don't know why

    I gave permission, to take the easy way out
    Bad decision, but I won't scream and shout

    Baby, I can't be mad
    For loving you that way
    I can't be mad
    I gave you my heart to break
    Can drown in sorrow, try to numb the pain
    But I can't be mad because I'm the one to blame

    Oh its like broken pieces are left on a shelf
    While you're looking happy
    I'm going through hell
    It's not the way that I thought it would be
    But you'll come back to me

    And I won't be mad
    For loving you that way
    And I can't be mad
    I gave you my heart to break

    I can't be mad
    For loving you that way
    I can't be mad
    I gave you my heart to break, oh babe
    Drown in sorrow try to numb the pain
    But I can't be mad because I'm the one to blame
    Yeah, I can't be mad 'cause I let you slip away Writer/s: HELEN JAYNE CULVER, KENNETH B. EDMONDS, KHRISTOPHER VAN RIDDICK TYNES, NATHAN SYKES, CARMEN REECE
