Brandi Carlile

Brandi Carlile - That Wasn't Me

rate me

Hang on, just hang on for a minute, I've got something to say

I'm not askin’ you to move on or forget it, but these are better days

To be wrong all along and admit it it's not amazing grace

But to be loved like a song you remember, even when you've changed

Tell me

Did I go on a tangent? (Ooo, ooo)

Did I lie through my teeth? (Ooo, ooo)

Did I cause you to stumble on your feet? (Ooo, ooo)

Did I bring shame on my family? (Ooo, ooo)

Did it show when I was weak? (Ooo, ooo)

Whatever you see

That wasn't me, That wasn't me, Oh, that wasn't me.

When you're lost you will toss every lucky coin you'll ever trust

And you’ll hide from your God like he ever turns his back on us (Ooo, ooo)

And you’ll fall all the way to the bottom and land on your own knife

And you'll learn who you are even if it doesn't take your life (Ooo, ooo)

Tell me

Did I go on a tangent? (Ooo, ooo)

Did I lie through my teeth? (Ooo, ooo)

Did I cause you to stumble on your feet? (Ooo, ooo)

Did I bring shame on my family? (Ooo, ooo)

Did it show when I was weak? (Ooo, ooo)

Whatever you see

That wasn't me, That wasn't me, Oh, that wasn't me.

But I want you to know that you'll never be alone

(Ooo, ooo, Never be alone, Ooo)

I wanna believe

Do I make myself a blessing to everyone I meet?

When you fall I will get you on your feet

Do I spend time with my family? (Ooo, ooo)

Did it show when I was weak? (Ooo, ooo)

When that's what you see,

That will be me, that will be me, that will be me

That will be me

"That Wasn't Me" is the first single from Brandi Carlile's forthcoming June 5 full-length "Bear Creek", and her fourth studio album and first since 2009. It's the song that has been a favorite of her live performances over the past year. "That Wasn't Me" is an emotional piano tune that showcases Carlile's soulful vocals and gospel-tinged harmonies.
