Because of you - Kelly Clarkson

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 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

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 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

Please let us sing together flooding the dolorously atmosphere with the fawning passion in our voice,
As long as we sing I promise you that we will both sing together permeating the gloomy ambience withthe intriguingly cheerful rhythm in our voice.
Please let us smile together enlightening the lives of our falling friends with optimistic rays of hope,
As long as we smile I promise you that we will both smile together profoundly admiring the glory of the stupendously brilliant Sun.
Please let us breathe together painting the gloomy carpets of air with our wildly bubbly tunes spawning new life into the countless as every instant unveiled,
As long as we breathe I promise you that we will both breathe together inhale blissful wind incessantly deluging our lungs with all the fresh breath that wecould save from the atmosphere.
Please let us fantasize together conceiving the most electrifying beauty overwhelming this enormous Universe catapulting into a land as enchanting as the divine,
As long as we dream I promise you that we will both dream together fantasize the most bizarre possible of things ever perceived on this planet philander every second into a garden overwhelmed with poignantly scented roses.
Please let us embrace together incarcerating our recklessly rising flames in our body as one under torrential cloudbursts of rain,
As long as we embrace I promise you that we will both embrace together twist our arms invincibly and stare unrelentingly at the pearly island of Moon.
