That Wasn't Me

Hang on, just hang on for a minute
I've got something to say
I'm not asking you to move on or forget it
But these are better days
To be wrong all along and admit it
Is not amazing grace
But to be loved like a song you remember
Even when you've changed
Tell me
Did I go on a tangent?
Did I lie through my teeth?
Did I cause you to stumble on your feet?
Did I bring shame on my family?
Did it show when I was weak?
Whatever you've seen
That wasn't me
That wasn't me
Oh that wasn't me
When you're lost, you will toss
Every lucky coin you'll ever trust
And you'll hide from your god
Like he ever turns his back on us
Then you'll fall all the way to the bottom
And land on your own knife
And you'll learn who you are
Even if it doesn't take your life
Tell me
Did I go on a tangent?
Did I lie through my teeth?
Did I cause you to stumble on your feet?
Did I bring shame on my family?
Did I show when I was weak?
Whatever you've seen
That wasn't me
That wasn't me
Oh that wasn't me
But I want you to know that you'll never be alone
I wanna believe
Do I make myself a blessing to everyone I meet?
When you fall, I will get you on your feet
Do I spend time with my family?
Did it show when I am weak?
When that's what you see
That will be me
That will be me
That will be me
That will be me
