I Did It For You – Ilana Charnelle

From the album A Class Act (2016)

You got set free for all your bad behaviour
And I got a devil when I needed a saviour
And you set me up, running for you
I opened my arms hoping you’d come through
We were a mess, should’ve seen the danger

So keep running babe, get on that plane
Don’t lie awake, I’ve done it for you
No, keep walking alone, no matter who you let go
Don’t start to hope, I’ve done it for you
I did it for you

You got a free pass before I knew we were playing
I stepped up to bat and you said, ‘I’m not staying’
You turned a blind eye when it suited you
And I built a bridge hoping you’d come through
We were resurrected but now we’re just fading

So keep running babe, get on that plane
Don’t lie awake, I’ve done it for you
No, keep walking alone, no matter who you let go
Don’t start to hope, I’ve done it for you
I did it for you

You got set free for all your bad behaviour
And I got a devil when I needed a saviour

So keep quiet now, should’ve known you’d bow out
Don’t knit that sweet brow, I’ve done it for you
Hey, yeah
No don’t look back, no, just keep that great mind blank
Don’t put aside your past, I’ve done it for you
I did it for you
You, you
Hey, hey, oh, hey
You
I did it for you
