(She's a lot like you)
The other day
When I said to you that we're through
I can't say that I blame you
For feeling black and blue

Chorus: (I know tonight she comes) Don't you stop don't you stop don't you stop don't you stop x4

Another day
Caught a knife I threw right at you
I misbehaved
And I don't blame you
For feeling black and blue (YEAH)


Another day
When I said to you that we're through
My heart today is so sorry
That you're all black and blue
