Every heart ache I've known
was self inflicted
Every cut down deep to the bone
I held the knife
Every tear that left my eye
I'm the reason why
so if you're looking or blame
I'm the guy
Every crime of passion
you were the victim
And I'm the cause of all your pain and suffering
All your dreams that hit the wall
Well that could never be your fault
So if you're looking to place blame
I'll take the blame
Blame it on me...
Blame it on me...

It's okay
to point the finger my way
I mean
Just look at you
you're so beautiful
and look at me
it's indisputable

The blame is on me
ohh blame it on me
ohh blame it on me

Just blame it on me
go ahead it will set you free
and maybe this once
I could make you happy

Every heart ache I've known was self inflicted.
