It Takes two Lyrics

These are the lyrics to song It Takes two as performed by Katy Perry

Verse 1:
Is Mercury in retrograde?
Or is that the excuse that I've always made?
'Cause I wanna blame you,
But I can only blame myself
Yeah, it's easy to throw you under the bus
Or call you crazy, while filling my cup
I say these things to hurt you
But I only hurt myself

Pre-Chorus 1:
Oh, I can only take responsibility for me

Chorus:
It takes two, two sides to every story
Not just you
I can't keep ignoring
I admit half of it, I'm not that innocent, oh, yeah
It takes two, two sides to every story
Not just me
You can't keep ignoring
But let me be first baby to say "I'm sorry" (I'm sorry)

Verse 2:
I face my demons, yeah, I paid my dues
I had to grow up, I wish you could too
I wanted to save you, but I can only save myself

Pre-Chorus 2:
Oh, I can only be the change you want to see
Yeah, to see

Chorus:
It takes two, two sides to every story
Not just you
I can't keep ignoring
I admit half of it, I'm not that innocent, yeah, oh
It takes two, two sides to every story
Not just me
You can't keep ignoring
But let me be first baby to say "I'm sorry" (I'm sorry)

Bridge:
I point my finger, but it does me no good
I look in the mirror, and it tells me the truth, yeah
Why are these lessons always learned the hard way?
Is it too late to change?

Chorus:
Oh, it takes two (It takes two), two sides to every story
Not just you (Not you)
I can't keep ignoring
And I admit half of it, I'm not that innocent, oh
It takes two (Takes two), two sides to every story
Not just me (Not me)
You can't keep ignoring
But let me be first, baby, to say "I'm sorry" (I'm sorry)
I'm sorry
