Jack Savoretti – Mea Culpa Lyrics

Jack Savoretti – Mea Culpa Lyrics

(Mea culpa)
I guess I should have known
You were going to be the one to hurt me
I never thought that it would be so easy
I used to think that I was strong

I guess I should have been
Better at pretending nothing’s wrong
‘Cause even rhythm can’t disguise a sad, sad song
Even you could only help me for so long

I did it to myself
But it’s just like everything else that I ever do (Mea culpa)
I did to myself
And the worst part of it all, I can’t even blame you (Mea culpa)
I did it to myself
I did it to myself
(Mea culpa)

I guess that I’ve been lying
I told myself I’m not alone but here I am
I thought I didn’t care but now I give a damn
Promises I’ve made and rights that I’ve made wrong

I did it to myself
But it’s just like everything else that I ever do (Mea culpa)
I did to myself
And the worst part of it all, I can’t even blame you (Mea culpa)
I did it to myself
I’m the one who turned into someone I never knew (Mea culpa)
I did it to myself
I never thought I’d self-destruct the way that people do
But I did it to myself

I did it to myself
(Mea culpa)

(Mea culpa)
I did it to myself
But it’s just like everything else that I ever do (Mea culpa)
I did to myself
And the worst part of it all, I can’t even blame you (Mea culpa)
I did it to myself
I’m the one who turned into someone I never knew (Mea culpa)
I did it to myself
I never thought I’d self-destruct the way that people do
But I did it to myself
I did it to myself
(Mea culpa)
I did it to myself
