I tried to blame you
 

I tried to blame you,

When our love fell apart,

I insisted I'd done nothing wrong,

But the long nights away,

I neglected to say,

We're the reason we split all along.

 

I tried to blame you,

When our romance was through,

I insisted I'd done all I can,

But way back in May,

I neglected to say,

I took off with a girl from the band.

 

I tried to blame you,

When our hearts broke in two,

I could see that you weren't too pleased,

But the way I behaved,

I neglected to say,

Gave you every reason to leave.
