Not Cause I Wanted To Lyrics

by Bonnie Raitt

Well Im calling you
Cause you deserve to know
You were not the reason
That I had to go
Late at night
In these hotel rooms
I think of all Ive lost
And what I put you through
If I knew the reason I would tell you
Why somehow the feeling slipped away
I only did what I had to do
Not cause I wanted to
Ive got a guilty heart
And a troubled mind
No matter where I go
Theyre never far behind
Id like to think
That youve forgiven me
But forgiveness aint enough to wash my conscious clean
Oh and if I knew the reason I would tell you
Why somehow the feeling slipped away
I only did what I had to do
Not cause I wanted to
I only did what I had to do
Not cause I wanted to
