about

This isn't part of the same story as the original Didn't Do A Thing (first single from my first album "Illuminated"), but rather an expansion of the idea of blamelessness when someone has done something terrible to you. Something like sexually assaulting you and then completely disregarding that it was indeed assault!

I found this perc loop on Garageband and really liked it so I built a song around it, HA. Everything in this song is what purists would call "fake" except my voice, which is unedited except for compression and reverb. I had fun.

lyrics

You lean into me
When I can't hold myself up
It's too late for this
You misplaced all your good luck
20 stories high
But you forgot your mind below
I won't apologize
Why would I?

I didn't do a goddamn thing
I didn't do a goddamn thing to you
I didn't do a goddamn thing
I didn't do a goddamn thing to you

You fell over me
Tripped over your own feet
You could've asked for my blessing
Is that not the language you speak?
There's no blame for you
Everybody says I knew the price
"Be careful, child,
You're someone else's 'mine'"

I didn't do a goddamn thing
I didn't do a goddamn thing to you
I didn't do a goddamn thing
I didn't do a goddamn thing to you
