He left no time to regret
Kept his dick wet
With his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my guy
You went back to what you knew
So far removed from all that we went through
And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked
I'll go back to black

We only said good-bye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to.....

I go back to us

I love you much
It's not enough
You love blow and I love puff
And life is like a pipe
And I'm a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to

We only said good-bye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to

Black, black, black, black, black, black, black,
I go back to
I go back to

We only said good-bye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to

We only said good-bye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to black

    The man she is in love with has left her for his ex or has returned back to his wife. He left no time to regret about ending his relationship with her and just bounced straight back to the other woman, he kept his d••k wet with his same old safe bet, so he was still sleeping with the other woman.
    Her life is like a pipe and she is the tiny penny rolling and spiralling down without control.
    Everytime he says goodbye and leaves her, it feels like she is dying inside and goes back to a dark place.

    Being on the fence of "recovery" and trying to climb over to the other side is the hardest thing ive ever struggled to do and just listening to her lyrics it takes me back to the good and bad troubled and the worst of black for me and it is incredibly heart breakingly sad that shes gone and we will never get to see what an amazing person/artist she would of become in the future... Not that she wasnt already amazing enough...

    it's too hard to love someone and you know inside that he's in love with someone else
    knowing that he leaves you to go to her feels like dieing inside
    too sad too painfull...

    To me this song means... He played her for a fool. He screwed with her emotions. No matter what she did, it wasn't enough. It's sad when you love someone so much and no matter what you do, it's never enough or right. People should learn to be considerate of others feelings. She wouldn't be dead today! He was a jerk!
    If you really listen to the lyrics of all her songs, she wrote it out in plain english!
    I love her music

    Sad life message to those on the rehab fence- hard to see it when you're in it- and that is the millions of us functionals still at risk for same demise- she had all that to live for- many more have kids and spouses- greater importance than material things- what's it worth- fleeting joy for permanent pain- that's what---get help
