Lyrics


Something told me that it was over, baby, yeah

When I saw you, when I saw you and that girl

And y'all was talking

Something deep down

Something deep down in my soul said, "Go on, go on and cry girl"

When I saw you, when I saw you with that same person

And y'all was walking around

And I'd rather, I'd rather be a blind, girl

Baby, yeah, yeah

Than to see you walk away, walk away from me

Baby, don't leave me, I don't wanna see you go

'Cause you see I love you so much

And I don't wanna watch you leave me

Don't wanna watch you leave me, baby

And another thing is, one more thing is

I just don't, I just don't wanna be free

Scared to be by myself

I was just, I was just sitting here thinking

About your sweet kiss and your, your warm embrace

Hmm your warm embrace, hmm your warm, warm embrace

When I look down in the glass that I held to my lips

And I saw the reflection of the tears rolling down my face

That's when I knew I love you and I couldn't do without you

And I'd rather be a blind, girl

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, babe, no babe, oh, oh

Oh babe, all day sitting up

Sitting up thinking about you

Myself, I don't wanna see you leave

Please don't go, oh babe, no babe, oh babe

I'd rather be a blind, girl

Something told me that it was over, baby

When I saw you, when I saw you and that girl

And y'all was talking

Something deep down in my soul said, "Go on, go on and cry girl"

When I saw you, when I saw you and that girl

And y'all was walking by

And I'd rather go blind, I'd rather go blind

I'd rather go blind, babe

Than to see you walk away, walk away

Don't walk away

'Cause I'd rather go blind
