Andra Day – Red Flags lyrics
I stood outside for hours thinking why
But you meant no harm you say
Salty tears burned my face last night
But you meant no harm you say
It was always me waiting on you what a cruel guessing game
You meant no harm you say
Now my soul drags behind my feet but I'll be fine I guess
You meant no harm you say

Still running it back in my mind
Trying to see why I was so bloody blind
So blind

I should've known that I'd lose everything
I should have known red flags were warning me
I couldn't see all that when the room was pitch black
Til you'd come and gone
You'd come and gone

I spend my time with photos from back when
But you meant no harm you say
I give your lies five stars what a display
'Cause you meant no harm you say
The truth was never a good friend of yours or mine I guess
And still no harm you say
A pastoral scene shattered to oblivion
You meant no harm you say

Still running it back in my mind
Trying to see why I was so bloody blind
So blind

I should've known that I'd lose everything
I should have known red flags were warning me
I couldn't see all that 'cause the room was pitch black

Are good intentions all you really have left for me (have left for me)
Can they cover the hole you left here in my heart (cover my heart)
Oh oh well what more can I say

I should've known that I'd lose everything
I should have known red flags were warning me
I couldn't see all that 'cause the room was pitch black
The room was pitch black, oh you

(I should've known that) I should've known that you'd take everything (my heart)
I should've known to kiss my heart away
I should've known red flags were warning me
You'd come and gone
