Lyrics:
Something told me it was over

When I saw you and her talking

Something deep down in my soul said, Cry girl

When I saw you and that girl walking, now
Ooh I would rather, I would rather go blind boy

Than to see you walk away from me, child
Ooh, so you see I love you so much and I don't wanna
watch you leave

me baby

Most of all I just don't, I just don't wanna be free, no

Ooh ooh I was just, I was just, I was just sitting here
thinking

Of your kiss and your warm embrace, yeah

When the reflections in the glass that I held to my lips now
baby

Revealed the tears that was on my face yeah

Ooh and baby, baby, I'd rather, I'd rather be blind boy

Than to see you walk away, see you walk away from me
yeah

Ooh baby baby baby I'd rather be blind... (fade)
