about

This is a soulful, blues, pop song that delivers a feeling of nostalgia to the listener. "Because of You" is about the tragedy of a broken heart and the emotions that come with feeling unappreciated, unnoticed and unloved by the person who has expressed love in the past. This is a sad song. Because it is a live studio recording that allows organic textures with the bleeding of sounds through the mics, it gives the listener a feeling as though they were present during the recording.

lyrics

Because of You

Do I have to look alive to be living?
Do I have to look alive to be breathing?
I choose not to move because of you.

Do you have to see my pain for me to be hurting?
Do you have to see the pills for them to be working?
I’m hurting whether you like it or not…
Because of you.

Such an answer waiting here.
Such a dream to be taken from me.
Scared to death to lose everything…
That doesn’t mean anything, anything, anything.

Oh, I’ve felt it too…
To love somebody who doesn’t deserve you.

Do I have to grit my teeth while I’m smiling?
Will I ever understand such a wild thing?
I’m crazy. I’m losing my mind…
Because of you.

Such an answer waiting here.
Such a dream to be taken from me.
Scared to death to lose everything…
That doesn’t mean anything.
Should have known better from the start,
But who could live that way?
Scared to death to lose everything…
That doesn’t mean anything, anything, anything.

Oh, I’ve felt it too…
To love somebody who loves to hurt you.

Do I have to look alive to be living?
Even though I close my eyes I’m still breathing.
I watch the world spin me to sleep…
Because of you.
