I Knew I had the Blues,

I knew I had the blues, but I didn’t know why,
Til’ I watched you cross that room, not quite looking in my eye.
I saw you shrug that shoulder, saw you flick that hair.
Saw you tilt your head back, smile and laugh, like you hadn’t got a care.
I knew I had the blues, but I didn’t know why,
and I didn’t know how much a heart could break in just one night.

I knew I had the blues, but I didn’t really care,
I was operatin’ real good, in my everyday affairs,
Thought I was livin’ easy, thought that I was livin’ fine.
Thought you were just a relic, buried deep inside my mind.
I knew I had the blues, but I didn’t really care,
til you wrecked my life, and left me standing there

    Now I feel just like a ghost, floating through the day to day,
    and I tried to turn to Jesus, but I never learned to pray.
    And I can’t say why it was you, that made me question why.
    But I don’t know how much longer, I can live within this lie.

        I knew I had the blues, but I wasn’t worried much,
        Now I can’t stop from thinking bout your touch.
