BLAME ME

Blame me, blame me for it all

Blame me, blame me Mr. Know-It-All

Blame me; blame me for your inability to move on

Blame me; blame me for raising your hopes up

Blame me; blame me for everything from now till infinity

Blame me; blame me just as if when you professed your love I wasn’t fourteen

Blame me; blame me for your wrong assumptions

Blame me; blame me just as if I’d known my innocence would lead you on

Blame me; let your mark of criticism be upon me

Blame me; blame me for every minute I wasted

Blame me; blame me because seven years later you were still persistent

Blame me; blame me for the I love you’s I never reciprocated

Blame me; blame me for your decision to remain friends afterwards

Blame me; blame me when all of a sudden you cut me off

Blame me; blame me for rushing into marriage solely to make me jealous

Blame me; blame me when it turned out to be a horror

Blame me; blame me for all our friends who cheered you on, our parents too

Y’all believed as I grew older my answer would transform, so you stood

Blame me; blame me for the red flags I saw but kept my cool

You could have changed for me but no one changes, it’s a fable

Blame me; blame me now that I am in a good state

Blame me; blame me now that you’re all alone with no one to hold

Blame me; you painted us a happy ending I ruined with a no

The places we would have been together, I have gone there on my own

Surely, again, life would gift you with someone that’ll restore your glow

Until then, blame me; blame me, it makes you feel better, I know.
