Track Name: Don't You Blame Me
[VERSE 1]
17, with my license /
We thought hey, we might as well try it /
If I act like I’m not fazed to the guy out the front of the pub /
Then he might buy it /
Then he bought it, awesome /
Jack and Coke we ordered for of them /
Excitement rushed through our veins as our brains then /
Couldn’t believe what they were pouring for us /
Imagine that /
Yeah /
Two kids in a world that they did not know /
But it did not show /
That there put me in lift off mode /
Same mind set when the chips got low /
What I’m saying is to live on hope /
When there ain’t none there and you cannot cope /
Life is…
Crazy /
How many hurricanes, floods, deaths, and festival line ups /
Have you heard about lately?
Trust me it’s happening right now, a lad on his night out /
Someone somewhere is smacking his lights out /
Cop car sirens are flashing their lights round /
Meanwhile in the wait for the racket to pipe down /
My ex girl sent me a text to see /
We all know how ex’s be /
But she don’t get a text from me /
Cos that’d make my new girl an ex to be /
We all on the chase of that ecstasy /
But no ex in me you can check my teeth /
Most the time we get cramped legs and feet /
Rarely do we ever get the exit seat /
And that’s a metaphor for rent and B. /
I.L.L.S. and expenses we /
Go and happen encounter each and every week /
So I think back to when I was 17, can you blame me /

[CHORUS]
Don’t you blame me /
For what I do not know /
What I have not grown in to be /
I said don’t you blame me /
Those tears in your eyes /
Are making it harder to see /
I said don’t you blame me /

[VERSE 2]
24, on a night out /
I was up late like a night owl /
Then the cops went and did a walk through /
And they told me to get right out right now /
It was late /
So I told him I thought that’s a great idea /
Then I skulled my drink and I put the glass down /
In between his two boots when I finished my beer /
And it pissed him off major /
I’m talking major /
Now I’m in the corner of the lift arm bended up my back /
Like he was trying to break it /
Spent a night locked up /
N’ got out in the morning /
With a court date then I walked strait /
Out gathered up my pennies and I went and got a lawyer /
Told her I was wasted sure /
Smart ass but I didn’t break the law /
N’ I can prove it with the video tapes for sure /
But when we got there the video tapes were gone /
He supplied his report lied through it all /
Deleted footage then denied it of coarse /
Then told me to plead guilty or else he’d have more /
Charges added if I decided to not /
Black mail, that failed /
Man I proved it all /
Then they went and dropped all charges 10 minutes /
Before the hearing they knew they would lose in court /
It was one for the ages /
But my effort wasn’t wasted /
Cos they paid for more than my trip to Vegas /
With 15 thousand in compensation all because they blamed me /

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
We are /
We are the ones who feel this /
And I’m /
Scared they won’t think I’m fearless /
Tried to paint me a halo /
I couldn’t quite get the colours right /
Where the hell did the day go? /
Spent my time chasing butterflies /
I’ll live til a hundred /
And have every answer for every question /
They ever thought of but for now /
The beauty’s in trying to work it out /
