Because of You

Kelly Clarkson

 GBmEmD
 I will not make the same mistakes that you did        
 GBm
 I will not let myself
 EmD
 Cause my heart so much misery      
 GBmEm
 I will not break the way you did,
 C
You fell so hard
 GD
 I've learned the hard way
 CD
To never let it get that far 

 Em
Because of you     
 CD
I never stray too far from the sidewalk      
 Em
Because of you    
 CD
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt        
 Em
Because of you    
 CDEm
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me        
 G
Because of you    
 D
I am afraid

 GBm
 I lose my way 
 EmDG
And it's not too long before you point it out         
 Bm
I cannot cry  
 EmDG
 Because you know that's weakness in your eyes              
 Bm
I'm forced to fake 
 EmDG
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life       
 D
My heart can't possibly break
 CD
When it wasn't even whole to start with  

 Em
Because of you     
 CD
I never stray too far from the sidewalk      
 Em
Because of you    
 CD
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt        
 G
Because of you    
 CDEm
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me      
 G
Because of you    
 D
I am afraid

 G
I watched you die    
 DA
I heard you cry every night in your sleep    
 G
I was so young
 EmA
You should have known better than to lean on me   
 GD
You never thought of anyone else      
 A
You just saw your pain
 GC
And now I cry in the middle of the night   
 BbBC#
For the same damn thing

 Em
Because of you     
 CD
I never stray too far from the sidewalk        
 Em
Because of you    
 CD
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt   
 Em
Because of you     
 CD
I try my hardest just to forget everything
 Em
Because of you    
 CD
I don't know how to let anyone else in
 Em
Because of you     
 CD
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty        
 EmEm
Because of you                      
 D
I am afraid
 G
Because of you    
 EmD
Ooh, oohhh, ohhh   
 G
Because of you    
 EmD
Ooh, oohhh, ohhh   
 G
 ooh
