Blame

I stood with my hands open wide

Waiting for a sign from your dead eyes

And you stood there with your mournful sighs 

Ignoring my 

My voice asking “why?”

Why? 

 

It took 

A week for you to speak 

While I was screaming 

I needed to see 

Eye to eye 

 

They said to follow waiting for a crumb

But hungry tastes like numb 

I was tired—I’m not done. 

 

And you’re so good at acting so good

Making sure I’d fall 

 

Blame it on time

Blame it on alcohol

Blame the new social trends

Tell me all good things end

Say it’s your heart

How it was doomed from the start

Call me your perfect girl 

Cut me out of your world 

Blame it on your life but I’ll

Blame it on you

 

 

I told myself that if I tried

Harder I could buy your affection

I could try

Rumor said if I waited that you’d come ‘round soon

The clock ticked on and you turned away

You left no clue

 

You’re so damn good at acting so good 

Making me feel small

 

 

Blame it on time

Blame it on alcohol

Blame the new social trends

Tell me all good things end

Say it’s your heart

How it was doomed from the start

Call me your perfect girl 

Cut me out of your world 

Blame it on your life but I’ll

Blame it on you

 

 

With burnt finger tips I reached for you face

And like a fool was burnt again by flames

My mouth rehearsed and almost said your name

But words are just words

Silence hurts worse 

 

So blame it on time

Blame it on alcohol

Blame the new social trends

Tell me all good things end

 

 

And I’ll blame it on her

I’ll blame it on me

I’ll say I was blind I didn’t see

I’ll blame the age 

I’ll blame your past

They tell me this heartache—it won’t last

 

You can blame it on your life, but I (x2)

I’ll blame it on
