    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.
