i guess it wasn’t mine lyrics – curtis stigers

how can you blame me
for the way i never felt before
and all the mistakes that i made?

it’s just that i was so in love
i couldn’t keep you close enough
i held too tight to the reins

it can’t keep a moment from p*ssin’ by
love’s not a thing that you own

oh i, i guess it wasn’t mine
i didn’t mean to lose the love
it took so long to find
i guess it wasn’t mine

i wore your heart upon my sleeve
a prize for all the world to see
a child’s dream of soul possession

thought of ever letting to
was more than i could bear, you know
i just thought of my own protection

love is a gift that you give away
it’s not a thing that you own

oh, i, i guess it wasn’t mine
i didn’t mean to lose the love
took so long to find
i guess it wasn’t mine

i could drive myself crazy
tear myself down
but things will be different
next time

love is a gift that you give away
it’s not a thing that you own

i, i guess it wasn’t mine
i didn’t mean to lose the love
it took so long to find
i guess it wasn’t mine

i guess it wasn’t mine
i know i love to say it wasn’t mine
it took so long to find
i had to walk away, had to walk away, yeah
oh, not again, it’s wrong
i guess it wasn’t mine after all
