Black Box

Black Box

Johnny Gill

I remember how it was when we were flying high in love, we were so proud
It's like we're shadowing the scene and we can see far above all of the clouds
There was storms going on, lovers fighting at home, down on the ground
But because of where we were, we could not see the rain or hear the sound, yeah

All of a sudden, there was something going wrong with all of my functions
Had to put my seatbelt back on
Please tell me something, even if it's just goodbye
Grab the parachute, let's jump before we die

'Cause baby I, I wish there was a way to find out
What we did wrong that made our love not last (made our love not last)
I wish there was a way to figure out
Just what it was that made our love life crash (ooh ooh ooh)
I wish there was a way to find out (said I wish, I wish)
What broke our hearts and it would hurt us the most (ooh)
Oh I wish love came with a black box, a black box

I remember when you and I would always slip away
While everyone else was sleeping baby you and I was creeping
We never put our seatbelts on, we never played it safe
Nevermind the turbulence, it only made us brave
Girl nothing else mattered we only cared bout getting by
We were on top of the world, the way we frequently fly, you and I

All of a sudden, there was something going wrong, with all of my functions
Had to put my seatbelt back on
Please tell me something, even if it's just goodbye
Grab the parachute, let's jump before we die (oh I wish)

I wish there was a way to find out (oh oh oh oh)
What we did wrong that made our love not last (that made our love not last)
I wish there was a way to figure out
Just what it was that made our love life crash (All I wanna know,all I wanna know)
I wish there was a way to find out (I wish, I wish, I wish)
What broke our hearts and it would hurt us the most (somebody tell me, oh oh oh oh)
Oh I wish love came with a black box, a black box

I was going through all the rubble, just to find out what got us in trouble
I would search through anything for you and me
So I could finally see what made you stop loving me
Exactly what it was that made us fall for all our love
So I could fix it and make you fall back in love with me,

I wish there was a way to find out
What we did wrong that made our love not last
(I wanna know, I wanna know right now)
I wish there was a way to figure out
(Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby where did our love go)
Just what it was that made our love life crash
(All of our plans got out of our hands)
I wish there was a way to find out
(I don't want to say goodbye)
What broke our hearts and it would hurt us the most
(Tell me baby what went wrong, please tell me)
Oh I wish love came with a black box, a black box
Oh oh h oh oh oh
I remember how it was when we were flying high in love
