That Wasn't Me Lyrics

Hang on, just hang on for a minute
I've got something to say
I'm not asking you to move on or forget it
But these are better days
To be wrong all along and admit is 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?
Did I lie through my teeth?
Did I cause you to stumble on your feet?
Did I bring shame on my family?
Did it show when I was weak?
Whatever you see, that wasn't me
That wasn't me, that wasn't me

When you're lost you will toss every lucky coin you'll ever trust
And you will hide from every god like he never turns his back on us
And you will fall all the way to the bottom and fall on your own knife
But you'll learn who you are even if it doesn't take your life

Tell me did I go on a tangent?
Did I lie through my teeth?
Did I cause you to stumble on your feet?
Did I bring shame on my family?
Did it show when I was weak?
Whatever you see, that wasn't me
That wasn't me, that wasn't me

But I want you to know that you'll never alone
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?
Did it show when I was weak?
When that's what you see, that will be me
That will be me, that will be me
That will be me

I know what it means to me, isn't the true. My mother had Parkinsons and became a different, negative person. I think if she could speak to us, this would be it. The way she was before becoming sick

This is a song about forgiveness and redemption. We are all better than our worst day. We are more than the worst thing we have done. All life has worth and meaning. God loves us through it all. We are redeemed thought the forgiveness of others.

This song is amazing !! I love it !! I think the song is about her father or a close relative who had an alcohol problem and just made mistakes in life. But, Honestly who doesn't make mistakes in life?I can connect to Brandi's lyrics.

Addictions come in many forms. Adultery, gambling, drugs, etc. It fits for any all of these. Agree with all of you in that this song in very emotional for those of us who have lived on either side of the adiction.

As she stated its about the toll addiction brings. I believe it's about the healthy person in the relationship standing up for what may be the first time and demanding that the addicted person take responsibility for their life. That the healthy one is not the problem in the relationship.

Someone close to me died last week. Someone who had changed so much, I didn't know her anymore. Addiction had it's ugly hands on her for a long time, finally taking all it wanted. But, it wasn't her. I have to keep thinking, it wasn't her.

This song reminds me of a past relationship Not only did he have an alcohol addiction but for me, the relationship was addictive I acted & became a dif person.I really lost myself &when we broke up the withdrawals were rough. But his alcohol was harder &him changed or not I'll always care & be there
