  • 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, 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

    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
