It Won't Be Me Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
'Cause I know there'll come a day
It'll come back on you and you'll pay
Verse 3
But won't be me you'll answer to
When the judgment arrives
And your penance is due
Forgiveness may come
Verse 4
For the things that you've done
For your dishonesty
But it won't be me
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
It won't be me you'll answer to
When the judgment arrives
And your penance is due
Forgiveness may come
Verse 8
For the things that you've done
For your dishonesty
But it won't be me
Verse 9
Now this isn't a threat or a curse
Just remember you heard it here first
Verse 10
It won't be me you'll answer to
When the judgment arrives
And your penance is due
Forgiveness may come
Verse 11
For the things that you've done
For your dishonesty
But it won't be me
Verse 12
No, it won't be me
