It's bordering on insanity
So blurred, so unclear
Then suddenly eyes focus and realize that
This man should not be here

It's funny how there's no remorse in the moment
But after it's over you wish you could disown it
As you get up to tell this stranger to leave
The love of your life walks in and sees everything

And of all the things that you could have said
What was in your head?
(I didn't mean to)

All the thoughts running through your mind
All that you could find
(I didn't mean to)

And the pain of losing everything comes over you
(I didn't mean to)
All you can say is that you didn't mean to
(I didn't mean to)

And it's reality now, pictures of him and your baby
Smashed in broken glass all on the floor
With his suitcase in one hand, your little girl's hand in the other
You hear him say, "Mommy don't love us no more"

And it cuts like a knife but you can't blame him either
You're a mother, you're a wife, but you're also a cheater
Ooh girl, one silly moment of lust
Just cost you everything that you've ever loved

And of all the things that you could have said
What was in your head?
(I didn't mean to)

All the thoughts running through your mind
All that you could find
(I didn't mean to)

And the pain of losing everything comes over you
(I didn't mean to)
All you can say is that 'you didn't mean to'
(I didn't mean to)

Oh, the clouds are rolling in
As you prepare to face this punishment and suffer the consequence
Such a price to pay
Was it really worth it?

And you fight back tears
As you watch him take the only thing you ever truly loved away
The tears in her eyes as she waves goodbye
Slowly kills you inside

And of all the things that you could have said
What was in your head?
(I didn't mean to)

All the thoughts running through your mind
All that you could find
(I didn't mean to)

And the pain of losing everything comes over you
(I didn't mean to)
All you can say is that 'you didn't mean to'
(I didn't mean to)

I didn't mean to
I didn't mean to
I didn't mean to
