I'd Rather Go Blind

Lyrics

Something told me it was over
When I saw you and her talking,
Something deep down in my soul said, "cry girl"´,
When I saw you and that girl, walking out.

It sucks that almost every song is about love. I'm done with love, it's a waste of time. I love my family and that is all. Etta James is such an amazing singer
