"Blame It on Me" as written by Joel Laslett Pott and George Ezra Barnett....
The garden was blessed by the Gods of me and you
We headed west for to find ourselves some truth, ooh
What you waiting for
What you waiting for

We counted all our reasons, excuses that we made
We found ourselves some treasure, and threw it all away
What you waiting for
No, What you waiting for
What you waiting for
No, What you waiting for

When I dance alone, and the sun's beating down
Blame it on me
When I lose control and the veil's overused
Blame it on me
What you waiting for
No, What you waiting for

Caught in the tide of blossom, caught in the carnival
Your confidence forgotten, I see the gypsies rule
What you waiting for
No, What you waiting for
What you waiting for
No, What you waiting for

When I dance alone, and the sun's beating down
Blame it on me
When I lose control and the veil's overused
Blame it on me
What you waiting for
No, What you waiting for
What you waiting for
No, What you waiting for

When I dance alone, and the sun's beating down
Blame it on me
When I lose control and the veil's overused
Blame it on me
When I dance alone, I know I'll go
Blame it on me ooh
When I'll lose control, I know I'll go
Blame it on me oh

What you waiting for
No, What you waiting for
What you waiting for
No, What you waiting for

    My InterpretationThe song is about a relationship where one person wants it to advance in some way, while the other person is more hesitant. An important thing to notice in this song is tense. The verses are past tense. The pre-chorus is in present tense. The chorus is in future tense.

    The first verse just describes them being interested in each other.
    The first pre-chorus introduces the dilemma.
    The second verse describes how they found love "Found ourselves some treasure" but her fear "threw it all away"
    The pre-chorus now makes more sense.
    The chorus says, very figuratively, that if things go wrong she can "blame it on me." "Dancing alone" = bad breakup / "Sun's beating down" = intense heat or fighting, bad breakup / "When I lose control" = if he messes up / "The veil's overused" = keeping secrets from each other, lose trust
    The pre-chorus is repeated to remind her of the request and ground the song in the present
    The third verse provides the clearest narrative. They found love "caught in the tide of blossom, caught in the carnival" but as things progressed "her confidence (is) forgotten"
    Pre-choruses and choruses are repeated to continue his argument/plea and to fill in the rest of the time in the song

    My InterpretationIt's about consequences of choices, I think.
