Janet Jackson – The Greatest Ex Ever lyrics

Yeah (x8)

My momma told me
That this could happen to me
That he would grow
To b this s*** man
But I just couldn't see
Cause I had my blinders on
I was in my zone
And I had
The thought of us in my head
Somehow I turned us all off
And then I met him
And he wasn't you
Then I dropped my head
Thinkin' what should I do
Oh, I

I loved you, and
You loved me
And I just
Couldn't see tomorrow, baby
And I care for you
And I didn't see us through
Now I know in my heart
You will always be
The greatest ex ever

Now I can't do a simple thing
Like fall asleep
Cause I can't close my eyes
Without a date with you
In my dreams, dreams
Sometimes I call ur phone
Just to hear ur tone
And I never say nothin
Wait just 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
Thinkin' what did I do
Oh, I

I loved you, and
You loved me
And I just
Couldn't see tomorrow, baby
And I care for you
And I didn't see us through
Now I know in my heart
You will always be
The greatest ex ever

And I know
That it's all my fault
And it would b a lie
If I said you
Didn't cross my mind at all
How do I erase from my days
That's shaded and blue
All my luv's with you

I loved you, and
You loved me
And I just
Couldn't see tomorrow, baby
And I care for you
And I didn't see us through
Now I know in my heart you
Will always be
The greatest ex ever
