Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

My momma told me that this could happen to me
That he would grow up and be the sexy man
But, oh I just couldn’t see
Cause I didn’t plan this alone, I was in my soul
And half of this was in my head and how I turned to this song
And then I met him, and he wasn’t you
And then I turned my head, again, what should I do?

[CHORUS:]
And I, love you, and you, loved me
But I just couldn’t see tomorrow
Baby and I, care for you
And I didn’t see this through
Now I know in my heart you will always be
The greatest ex ever

Now when you do a simple thing like fall asleep
Cause I can’t close my eyes without a day with you in my dreams
Sometimes I call your phone just to hear your tone
And I never say nothing I just like a couple of seconds to hear you breathe and then I’m gone,
But he’s not like you
Can’t help but to hold my head
Again, what did I do?

[REPEAT CHORUS]

I try not to think that it’s all my fault
I would lie if I said you didn’t cross my mind at all
How do I raze my days, that are shaded in blue
All my love’s for you

[REPEAT CHORUS till fade]
