It wasn’t working
Spent too much time trying to make you stay
So undeserving
And I didn’t love you anyway
My great disappointment
But I kept hoping one day you’d change
Tried to be patient, but to be honest
I lost too much me along the way

Don’t wanna say it should’ve been me
‘Cause that’d be a mistake
And it doesn’t help me anyway
‘Cause every time I think of how
This all should’ve played out
Not a damn thing would’ve changed
And I don’t wanna make it seem
Like I was in it too deep
And I couldn’t make it out
‘Cause when I heard the truth 
All I thought of was you
And how we couldn’t work it out

I hope you’re happy (but I really don’t)
I hope she loves you (and someday she won’t)
Tried to be better (but I guess I can’t)
It’s not that I want you (but she can’t have my man)
But I still blame you for all the misery
And I still blame you for all the everything
I have to blame you ’cause I didn’t get my turn
Wanted to let it burn but you still have to learn
Baby this is the blame song

Tried to face facts, tried to go on
Tried to make peace with my new life
The one you weren’t in
Tried to think more, tried to feel less
Tried to move on, tried to be strong
Your love I wouldn’t miss
Now post-illusion
My own conclusion
Is I can’t go on fooling no one
Let’s not pretend we were ever friends
We wasted enough time as it is

Don’t wanna say it should’ve been me
‘Cause that’d be a mistake
And it doesn’t help me anyway
‘Cause every time I think of how
This all should’ve played out
Not a damn thing would’ve changed
And I don’t wanna make it seem
Like I was in it too deep
And I couldn’t make it out
‘Cause when I heard the truth 
All I thought of was you
And how we couldn’t work it out

I hope you’re happy (but I really don’t)
I hope she loves you (and someday she won’t)
Tried to be better (but I guess I can’t)
It’s not that I want you (but she can’t have my man)
But I still blame you for all the misery
And I still blame you for all the everything
I have to blame you ’cause I didn’t get my turn
Wanted to let it burn but you still have to learn
Baby this is the blame song

(Every time I think about it got me twisted up inside)
When I finally get to tell you
Everything I went through
(This is the blame song)
(Every time I think about it I just about lost my mind)
When I finally get to haunt you
With everything you can’t do
(This is the blame song)
(Every time I think about it boy I hold my pillow tight)
When I finally get to hurt you
For everything you took from me
(This is the blame song)
(Every time I think about it baby I can’t sleep at night)
Baby this is the blame song
