Something told me
It was over (yeah)
When I saw you
And her talking

Something deep
Down
In my soul said
"Cry Girl" (cry cry)
When I saw you
And that girl
Walking around

Ooooo
I would rather
I would rather
Go blind boy
Than to see you
Walk away
From me chile No, no

Ooooo
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

Oooo
Oooo
I was just
I was just
I was just
Sitting here
Thinking
Of your kiss
And your
Warm embrace
Yeah

When
The reflection
In a glass
That I held
To my lips now
Baby (yeah yeah)
Revealed
These tears
That are on
On my face

Oooo
And baby, baby, baby
I would rather
Be blind boy
Than to see you
Walk away

Walk away
From me, yeah
And Baby, baby, baby
I'd rather be
Blind boy

Then to see you
Walk away
Walk away from me
(Baby, baby, baby)
(Baby, baby, baby)

    She'd never wanna see her man with another girl. She'd never want it so bad that she'd actually rather go blind. Heart breaking and cute.

    I'd rather go blind is a very strong song that expresses deep emotions of a woman crying out to a man she's in love with who's with another girl.
