My Fault

My Fault

I’ve tried and tried to do right by you
But sometimes it’s so hard
When I come home from a double shift
And you’re passed out in the yard
I know this hardscrabble life of ours
Is not the life you’d choose
So you fill our nights with bitterness
And drown your days in booze

Chorus:
It’s my fault
You tell me every day
It’s my fault
That things turned out this way
It’s my fault
There can be no doubt
That it’s my fault
And you want out

I recall the look in your dad’s eyes
The night that you said yes
I said do we have your blessing sir
And he said well I guess
Your mother said he would come around
But he’s never liked me
He always says you can do better
And now you want to see

Chorus:
It’s my fault
You tell me every day
It’s my fault
That things turned out this way
It’s my fault
There can be no doubt
That it’s my fault
And you want out

I wish I could learn some magic spells
I’d turn the hands of time
And take us back to where we began
Back when you were still mine
And this time you’d always believe in me
And I’d do right by you
It is such a simple thing to want
But oh so hard to do

Chorus:
It’s my fault
You tell me every day
It’s my fault
That things turned out this way
It’s my fault
There can be no doubt
That it’s my fault
And you want out
