you gave me your word
then you took your word back
once I had faith now all I is seeing black
black, seeing black
I gave you up rather then givin' in
Once there was virtue it's fallen to sin
black, seeing black

gave me you word, then flew like a bird
never looking back
you can run, can try
but you wont get away this time, aaah aaah

you played me for a fool
in you heart you had to seek
made you up inside my mind
finally you are me
you had to turn black
turning black

I never could have seen how you shoot that 44
you hit me right below the shoulder I felt to the floor
I'm on my back, on my back
you shot me with you gun, run run run run
never looking back

you can run in too the street
my eyes track you as you leave, leeeeee eaavee
And if you run into the woods
ill chop you down just like a tree


I roll in to town
from my years spending my sleep
the word the people held
is that your price is cheap
your price is cheap, price is cheap
the house with the red light on and the fancy decor
you build your new life hastely now i find you poor
I find you poor, I find you poor

the sheriff find you out There is garenty no doubt
you aint coming back

we watch you catch your rail roadcar
that didnt get you very far, aaaah aaaah
and when you finnaly mett your match,
we watched you kiss the railroad tracks

black seeing black
black seeing black
black seeing black
black seeing black
