Because Of You

Song Author Kelly Clarkson Submitted by: Anonymous
[Fm]    [Db]    [Eb]    
[Ab]I will not m[Cm]ake the s[Fm]ame mistakes that you did[Eb]    
[Ab]I will not l[Cm]et myself
[Fm]Cause my heart so much misery[Eb]    
[Ab]I will not b[Cm]reak the w[Fm]ay you did,
You fell so hard [Eb]    
[Ab]I've learned the ha[Cm]rd way
[Fm]To never let it get that [Eb]far   

Because of y[Fm]ou   
I never s[Db]tray too far from the s[Eb]idewalk
Because of y[Fm]ou   
I learned[Db] to play on the safe side so I d[Eb]on't get hurt [C7]    
Because of y[Bbm]ou    
I find it hard to [Ab/C]trust not only me[Eb], but everyone aroun[C7]d me   
Because of [Db]you   
I am afrai[Eb]d   

[Ab]I lose my w[Cm]ay   
[Fm]And it's not too long before you point it[Eb] out   
[Ab]I cannot cr[Cm]y   
[Fm]Because you know that's weakness in your[Eb] eyes
[Ab]I'm forced [Cm]to fake
[Fm]A smile, a laugh everyday of my [Eb]life   
[Ab]My heart can't po[Cm]ssibly break
[Fm]When it wasn't even whole to s[Eb]tart with

Because of y[Fm]ou   
I never s[Db]tray too far from the s[Eb]idewalk
Because of y[Fm]ou   
I learned[Db] to play on the safe side so I d[Eb]on't get hurt [C7]    
Because of y[Bbm]ou    
I find it hard to [Ab/C]trust not only me[Eb], but everyone aroun[C7]d me   
Because of [Db]you   
I am afrai[Eb]d   

I watched you [Cm]die   
I heard you c[Fm]ry every night in yo[Eb]ur sleep
I was so y[Cm]oung   
You should have [Fm]known better than to l[Eb]ean on me
You never t[Cm]hought of anyone el[Fm]se   
You just saw y[Eb]our pain
And now I[Cm] cry in the middle of the[Fm] night
For the [Eb]same damn thing


Because of y[Fm]ou   
I never s[Db]tray too far from the s[Eb]idewalk
Because of y[Fm]ou   
I learned[Db] to play on the safe side so I d[Eb]on't get hurt [C7]    
Because of y[Gm]ou   
I try my hardest j[Eb]ust to forget ever[F]ything
Because of y[Gm]ou   
I don't know how to [Eb]let anyone el[F]se in [D]    
Because of y[Cm]ou   
I'm ashamed of my [Bb/D]life because it's em[F]pty [D]    
Because of y[Eb]ou   
I am af[F]raid


Because of [Gm]you    [Eb]    [F]    
Because of [Gm]you    [Eb]    [F]    


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 you know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

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 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 try 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

Because of you
Because of you
