Because of You - Reba McEntire feat Kelly Clarkson

Reba:
I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did,
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

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

Kelly:
I lose my way
And it's not too long (before you point it out)[Reba & Kelly]
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness [in your eyes][Reba & Kelly]
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

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

Reba
I watched you die
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
(I watched you die...)[Kelly]
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
(I was too young for you to lean on me...)[Kelly]
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
(You never saw me...)[Kelly]
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Reba:
Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me but everyone around me
[Reba & Kelly]
Because of you [Reba & Kelly]
I am afraid

Reba:
Because of you...
Kelly:
MmmmmmOooooh...
Reba:
Because of you...
Kelly:
MmmmmmOooooh...
