Beyoncé – I'd Rather Go Blind lyrics

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

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

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

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

I was just
I was just
I was just
Sitting here
Of your kiss
And your
Warm embrace

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

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)

    "i rather go blind" is powerful lyrics, because no more wants to see their heart being ripped out, every time I hear that I think about surgery where you need anesthesia to block/numb the pain so wanting to go blind is her wanting to numb the pain. Also wanting to go blind is powerful because she would rather miss out on seeing all of life's beauty just so she wont be heartbroken. Now that's love. I love this song.
