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 arround

I would rather, I would rather go blind boy
Than to see you, walk away from me child, and all
So you see, I love you so much
That I don't want to watch you leave me baby
Most of all, I just don't, I just don't want to be free no uh uh 

I was just, I was just, I was just sitting here thinking
Of your kisses and your warm embrace, yeah
When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips now baby (yeah, yeah)
Revealed the tears that was on my face, yeah
And baby, baby (baby, baby, bay) I would rather be blind boy 
Than to see you walk away, see you walk away from me, yeah
Baby, baby, baby (baby, baby, bay) I'd rather be blind now (baby, baby, bay)
