For anyone who has ever been in a relationship they wanted to end SO badly, they were willing to take all the blame just to be out of it.

Blame it on me; I’ll take the fall

My shoulders are broad enough now

Having carried the full load all this time

Never depending on you for support

What’s a little added weight?

I’ll be the bad guy; take the hit

For your failures and mine

No different than it ever was

Everything always comes down to me

I was overly critical and highly suspicious

And your motives were oh so pure

Actually I was just tired of the nonsense,

Sick of trying to maintain the façade

Proclaim to the world how hard you tried

I was the stubborn one, prideful

Resistant to change, I gave up

Blame it on me; I really don’t care

It can be all my fault

So long as it’s finally over
