Janet Jackson – Greatest X lyrics

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?

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?


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]
