Losing Lisa

Original Artist: Ben Folds

The lights are off again
She took me by surprise
Sheís so sensitive
This sh*t just happens sometimes
Sheís my everything
Sheís my best friend and more
We donít do anything
We didnít do the day
Before you go
You oughta know
That I didnít mean to hurt you, I just wanted you to know

Black tears are falling down her face
And I am wrong
Black tears are falling and she wonít say what Iíve done
Sheís sitting here beside me, then she is gone
Black tears are falling, falling

Remember long ago
Together laughing, loving
Oh so long ago
When we were buying something
Life was simple then
But sheís not happy now, and I
Donít feel anything
Her lips are moving
I am mesmerised
By tiny lies
Iím watching as the shapes are drawing slowly from her eyes

Black tears are falling down her face
And I am wrong
Black tears are falling and she wonít say what Iíve done
Sheís sitting here beside me, then she is gone
Black tears are falling, falling
Black tears are falling, falling

Losing Lisa
Losing Lisa
Losing Lisa
And thereís nothing I can do

Black tears are falling, falling (ooh ooh)
Black tears are falling, falling (ooh ooh)
Black tears are falling, falling (ooh ooh)
Black tears are falling, falling (ooh ooh)
