If It Wasn't for Bad

This song is by Elton John and Leon Russell and appears on the album The Union (2010).

I knew from the first night I met you
Something just wasn't quite right
Looked like an innocent stranger
But something was just out of sight

How could I know that you would use me
Fill out some plan of your own
I couldn't have known you'd abuse me
Leave me here hurt and alone

If it wasn't for you I'd be happy
If it wasn't for lies you'd be true
I know you could be just like you should
If it wasn't for bad you'd be good

I only saw what I wanted to see
You were a dream in my mind
I didn't know how you really could be
It didn't take long for me to find

I guess that it's my fault for seeing
Only what I wanted to see
I couldn't know you would be
A player just acting for me

If it wasn't for you I'd be happy
If it wasn't for lies you'd be true
I know you could be just like you should
If it wasn't for bad you'd be good

I knew from the first night I met you
Something just wasn't quite right
Looked like an innocent stranger
But something was just out of sight

If it wasn't for you I'd be happy
If it wasn't for lies you'd be true
I know you could be just like you should
If it wasn't for bad you'd be good
