about

Polish-born pop singer AGATA and I wrote this song back in 2002. It's a a "no fault" breakup song, where something in the relationship just changes, and the fire dies. This is a brand new recording, and an early single from my upcoming (Summer 2016) pop album, "In and Out of Love Again".

lyrics

DON'T BLAME ME
words and music by AGATA and Rick Paul

It's not the same anymore
When I say I love you
They're only words I say
That I no longer feel
It's not the same
The love just isn't real

But don't blame me
I didn't mean to cause you pain
I never dreamed I'd drift away
It was so easy to believe
Loving you was all I needed
And I wanted it to be
Don't blame me

It's not the same anymore
I don't tremble when you kiss me
And I can see my tears
Reflecting in your eyes
Words can't explain
Why the fire dies

Don't blame me
I didn't mean to cause you pain
I never dreamed I'd drift away
It was so easy to believe
Loving you was all I needed
And I wanted it to be
Don't blame me

Why can't we just move on now
We don't need to know who's wrong and right
Let's not fight
Don't...

Don't blame me
I didn't mean to cause you pain
I never dreamed I'd drift away
It was so easy to believe
Loving you was all I needed
And I wanted it to be
Don't blame me
Don't blame me
