It's Not My Fault

verse 1
I closed my mouth
Fought back words I couldn't say
It wouldn't have helped
Wouldn't have mattered, anyway
What can I do?
What do you expect,
Me to say I miss the way you talked to me, or your soft kisses on my neck?
I must admit, it's tempting
But only to repair
This broken-down friendship
Although, I know that wouldn't be fair

chorus
I'm sorry, I don't love you
I don't even lust
I don't want to hurt you
But at this point, I must
You're so condescending
Try to make me feel so small
And these are all the reasons
I won't answer when you call

verse 2
It isn't that I hate you
It's hard to just explain
I'm gonna try to say this
Without causing you much pain
Cause you did mean a lot to me
At one point in time
But I'm so tired of hearing
That being me is like a crime

verse 3
Yes, I was wrong
Should never have pretended
I felt more than a friendship
Cause you say that's why it ended
But I'm just a kid
You should have known better
Than to think a kiss was a promise
That we would stay together
I'm not denying my wrong here
Teasing you wasn't right
But neither is the way
You've made this all my fight
chorus
I'm sorry, I don't love you
I don't even lust
I don't want to hurt you
But at this point, I must
You're so condescending
Try to make me feel so small
And these are all the reasons
I won't answer when you call

Sure, intelligence is talent
A reason to be proud
But way that you announce it
It's bombastic and it's loud
I have my beliefs
And you, in turn, your own
But you can't respect another's
So you'll end up all alone
You think that she's a saint
Think she understands
But what you fail to realize
Is that you're putty in her hands
Call me over dramatic
Call me vicious; call me mean
One day, though, you'll realize
Her innocence was feigned
No, she doesn't love you
Or anyone at all
She'll only stay involved
As long as you stay at her call

verse 4
One day, you will realize
That I was your true friend
But I don't think this damage
Is something you can mend
I already do forgive you
But honestly, I'm hurt
I feel as if your trust
Is something I had earned
No, I couldn't be with you
I'm still very young
I'm smarter than you realize
Though you thought I was dumb
Yeah, that was upsetting
That really made me mad
Since the things that you believe in
Are all part of a fad
So, grow up a little
That's my parting advice
I hate to inform you
But you're not always right

chorus
I'm sorry, I don't love you
I don't even lust
I don't want to hurt you
But at this point, I must
You're so condescending
Try to make me feel so small
And these are all the reasons
I won't answer when you call
