John Legend How Can I Blame You Lyrics

I should’ve known when the cop told me I’m goin’ too fast

He told me

Speed like that and it’s bound to be a hell of a crash

He told me

Better late than you don’t get there, do the math

Oh you oughta be grateful

For what you have

Well what if I refuse to learn?

I see a flame, I wanna get burned

How can I blame you

For showin’ up at the party?

Lookin’ through me in that way

Saw somethin’ inside of me break

Saw me wanna make a mistake

How can I blame you

For takin’ over my daydreams?

I wanna scream it, I’m sorry

But I can’t ’cause I’m long overdue

Oh I wanna blame it on you

Why’s it hard for a man to be satisfied?

Oh, I got one glimpse of the green grass on the other side

‘Cause it’s all been comin’ to this and goddamn I won’t be denied

Oh I’m gonna take one more chance tonight

Oh, what if I refuse to learn?

I see the flame grow, I gotta get burned

How can I blame you

For showin’ up at the party?

Lookin’ through me in that way

Saw somethin’ inside of me break

Saw me wanna make a mistake

How can I blame you

For takin’ over my daydreams?

I wanna scream it, I’m sorry

But I can’t ’cause I’m long overdue

Oh I wanna blame it on you

Did I know my weakness?

Did I mount all my defenses?

Did I tell you to leave me alone?

How can I blame you?

You saw somethin’ inside of me break

You saw me wanna make a mistake

How can I blame you?

You saw somethin’ inside of me break

You saw me wanna make a mistake

How can I blame you

For takin’ over my daydreams?

I wanna scream it, I’m sorry

But I can’t ’cause I’m long overdue

Oh I wanna blame it on you

I wanna blame it on you

I wanna blame it on you, yeah
