I Don’t Blame You, a song by Cat Power, taken from the album You Are Free released in 2003
Your hair was wild, your eyes were red
And you were in a rage
You were swinging your guitar around.
Cause they wanted to hear that sound
But you didn’t want to play.
And I don’t blame you.
Been inside many heads in different positions
But you never wanted them that way.
What a cruel price you thought that you had to pay.
And that for all that shit on stage.
Could you imagine if when they turned their backs
They were only scratching their heads.
Cause you simply deserve the best.
And I don’t blame you
But then they were only kids
Then you would recall the deadly houses you grew up in
Just because they knew your name,
Doesn’t mean they know from where you came
What a sad trick you thought that you had to play.
But I don’t blame you
And you never owed it to them anyway.
