Not Cause I Wanted to - Bonnie Raitt

Well I'm calling you
'Cause you deserve to know
You were not the reason that I had to go,
Late at night in these hotel rooms
I think of all I've lost,
And what I put you through

And if I knew the reason
I would tell you why somehow
The feeling slipped away
I only did what I had to do
Not cause I wanted to.

I've got a guilty heart
And a troubled mind
No matter where I go
They're never far behind
I'd like to think
That you've forgiven me
But forgiveness ain't enough
To wash my conscience clean

Oh and if I knew the reason
I would tell you why somehow
The feeling slipped away
I only did what I had to do
Not cause I wanted to.
I only did what I had to do
Not cause I wanted to.
