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

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, and now we’re just fading

 
So keep running babe, get on that plane

Don’t lie awake

I’ve done it for you

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

No don’t look back, 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

I did it for you
