Seeing Black (Album Version)

Seeing Black (Album Version)

Lucinda Williams

How did you come up with a day and time
You didn't tell me you'd changed your mind
How could I have been so blind
I didn't know you'd changed your mind

When you made the decision to get off this ride
Did you run out of places to go and hide
Did you know everybody would be surprised
When you made the decision to get off this ride

When you made the decision to jump ship
Once and for all lose your grip
Did you wax the deck to make it easier to slip
When you made the decision to jump ship

When did you start seeing black
Was it too much good you felt you lacked
Was it too much weight riding on you back
When did you start seeing black

When did you start seeing red
Did you see me standing over your bed
Did you hear anything I said
When did you start seeing red

When did you start seeing white
Tell me baby, what was it like
Was it when you received your last rites
When did you start seeing white

Did you use a compass to get out of this place
Did you ever hear my voice, did you see my face
Did you finally get tired of running the race
Did you use a compass to get out of this place

Did you feel your act was a final truth
The dramatic ending of a misspent youth
Did you really feel you had all the proof
Did you feel your act was a final truth

Was it hard to finally pull the plug
Was it hard to receive that final hug
Did evil triumph over love
Was it hard to finally pull the plug

When did you start seeing black
Was it too much good you felt you lacked
Was it too much weight riding on you back
When did you start seeing black

When did you start seeing red
Did you see me standing over your bed
Did you hear anything I said
When did you start seeing red

When did you start seeing white
Tell me baby what was it like
Was it when you received your last rites
When did you start seeing white
