The second (and only) "Black X" track to appear on the Black X album.


Hook 1:
Didn’t you think it’d be that way
‘Cause I never knew that it’d be that way
Why do people hurt me
I forced myself to close you out
Why do people hurt me
And now I’ve forced you out

Verse 1:
Every time I give my heart away it ends up broken
Each and every time I get you to stay my eyes awaken
Every single time you start to leave oh I start shaking
That’s why my mind’ll never be at ease I gotta keep my baby

Hook 2:
I didn’t know that this would happen the way it did
When you do me wrong
When you sing sad songs
Don’t I seem to shut you out
And now that you’re gone
I’m left alone to sing this song
Didn’t you think
Didn’t you think before you spoke
Didn’t you think
Didn’t you think before you acted

Verse 2:
Every time we have an episode I wanna be alone
But each and every time I lay alone I need you to come home
Every single time you bare your soul I wish I didn’t know
That’s why this case of ‘us’ cannot be closed I gotta keep my baby

Hook 3:
Why didn’t you know
Why didn’t you know
In the verses that I’ve sang
All the things that I am
Why didn’t you know
Why didn’t you know
And now I’m left alone
‘Cause you didn’t know
You never knew me
And now you’ve got a black X through your name
