I Don't Blame You  Chan Marshall

the last time i saw you, you were on stage.
your hair was wild, your eyes were bright and you were in a rage.
you were swinging your guitar around
cause they wanted to hear that sound
that you didn't want to play.

but i don't blame you, i don't blame you.
(i don't blame you.)

been around the world, in many situations.
been inside many heads, in different positions.
but you never wanted them that way,
what a cruel price you thought
that you had to pay them back for all that shit on stage
but it never made sense to them anyway
could you imagine when they turned their backs
they were only scratching their heads,
cause you simply deserved the best.

and i don't blame you.
(i dont blame you.)
i don't blame you.

they said you were the best, but then, they were only kids.
then you would recall the deadly houses you grew up in.

just because they knew your name,
doesn't mean they know from where you came.
what a sad trick you thought that you had to play.

but i don't blame you, they never owned it.
(they never owned it.)
and you never owed it to them, anyway.

i don't blame you x 3
