Because of You   Kelly Clarkson

[G]I will not mak[Bm]e the same mi[Em]stakes that you did       [D]
[G]I will not le[Bm]t myself
[Em]Cause my heart so much misery      [D]
[G]I will not [Bm]break the[Em] way you did,
You fell s[C]o hard
[G]I've learned the hard w[D]ay
To never[C] let it get that far [D]


Because of you     [Em]
I never str[C]ay too far from the sidewalk      [D]
Because of you    [Em]
I learned to play on the safe side s[C]o I don't get hurt        [D]
Because of you    [Em]
I find it hard to[C] trust not only m[D]e, but everyone around me        [Em]
Because of you    [G]
I am afra[D]id


[G]I lose my way [Bm]
And it's not[Em] too long before y[D]ou point it out         [G]
I cannot cry  [Bm]
[Em]Because you know that's weakness i[D]n your eyes              [G]
I'm forced to fake [Bm]
A sm[Em]ile, a laugh everyda[D]y of my life       [G]
My heart can't possibly[D] break
When it wasn't[C] even whole to start with  [D]


Because of you     [Em]
I never str[C]ay too far from the sidewalk      [D]
Because of you    [Em]
I learned to play on the safe side s[C]o I don't get hurt        [D]
Because of you    [G]
I find it hard to t[C]rust not only [D]me, but everyone around me      [Em]
Because of you    [G]
I am afra[D]id


I watched you die    [G]
I heard you c[D]ry every night in your sleep    [A]
I was so young[G]
You should have known[Em] better than to lean on me   [A]
You never though[G]t of anyone else      [D]
You just saw [A]your pain
And now I c[G]ry in the middle of the night   [C]
For the[Bb] same da[B]mn thin[C#]g

Because of you     [Em]
I never stray[C] too far from the sidewalk        [D]
Because of you    [Em]
I learned to play on the safe si[C]de so I don't get hurt   [D]
Because of you     [Em]
I try my hardest just [C]to forget everyt[D]hing
Because of you    [Em]
I don't know h[C]ow to let anyone else in[D]
Because of you     [Em]
I'm ashamed of my life becau[C]se it's empty        [D]
Because of you    [Em]                  [Em]
I am afr[D]aid
Because of you    [G]
Ooh,[Em] oohhh, ohhh   [D]
Because of you    [G]
Ooh,[Em] oohhh, ohhh   [D]
[G]ooh
