Song lyrics
I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way, to never let it get that far

Because of you
I'll never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake, a smile, a laugh
Every day of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I'll never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry
Every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry
In the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you
I'll never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you
I tried my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you

I once went to my bf's house to ask about the girl when I noticed the window was broken. There was a robber in his house and he shot my bf. I ran but the robber shot my leg. I can't walk to this day, but this song still reminds me of him. I still love you, Jayden, for always and ever...

Wow... this song reminds me of when I was going to meet my bf and i saw him kissing a different girl. I tripped while watching them, and he wouldn't even help me up. I beat the other girl up, and when she socked me and injured my shoulder plate, we both fell to the ground. He ran over and I thought, "Ok, he'll help me now." Instead, he helped up the new girl and I sat there with two paralyzed arms. I was there for a whole hour.
I'll continue in a new message, seeing as how this one's pretty long.

I usually don't listen to this type of music,
though I got to admit, this song is awfully good.

This is a great song by Kelly Clarkson. Everything was good about this song. Kelly Clarkson has great vocals, that's why she won Idol.

Kelly Clarkson has some pretty wild, fast paced songs. This is one of her best being a rare slow song. Overall she's a good singer that can sing any kind of music.

I'm still tearing the words apart to get the exact meaning and who is who.
