it won’t be me lyrics – alecia nugent

so your bags are all packed and you’re leaving
without so much as telling me why
pardon me if i skip all the grieving
i’ll simply get on with my life

’cause i know there’ll come a day
it’ll come back on you and you’ll pay

but won’t be me you’ll answer to
when the judgment arrives
and your penance is due
forgiveness may come

for the things that you’ve done
for your dishonesty
but it won’t be me

well, it goes against my christian raising
to be feeling the way that i am
i should get on my knees
and start praying for your absolution

but i’ve tried and i can’t
after what you did to me and to us
you’ve betrayed all my love and my trust

it won’t be me you’ll answer to
when the judgment arrives
and your penance is due
forgiveness may come

for the things that you’ve done
for your dishonesty
but it won’t be me

now this isn’t a threat or a curse
just remember you heard it here first

it won’t be me you’ll answer to
when the judgment arrives
and your penance is due
forgiveness may come

for the things that you’ve done
for your dishonesty
but it won’t be me

no, it won’t be me
