Album: All Saints (1997)
Charted: 1 4
  • A few questions that I need to know
    How you could ever hurt me so
    I need to know what I've done wrong
    And how long it's been going on
    Was it that I never paid enough attention?
    Or did I not give enough affection?
    Not only will your answers keep me sane
    But I'll know never to make the same mistake again
    You can tell me to my face or even on the phone
    You can write it in a letter, either way, I have to know
    Did I never treat you right?
    Did I always start the fight?
    Either way, I'm going out of my mind
    All the answers to my questions
    I have to find

    My head's spinning
    Boy, I'm in a daze
    I feel isolated
    Don't wanna communicate

    I'll take a shower, I will scour
    I will rub
    To find peace of mind
    The happy mind I once owned, yeah

    Flexing vocabulary runs right through me
    The alphabet runs right from A to Z
    Conversations, hesitations in my mind
    You got my conscience asking questions that I can't find

    I'm not crazy
    I'm sure I ain't done nothing wrong, no
    I'm just waiting
    'Cause I heard that this feeling
    Won't last that long

    Never ever have I ever felt so low
    When you gonna take me out of this black hole?
    Never ever have I ever felt so sad
    The way I'm feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

    Never ever have I had to find
    I've had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
    I've never ever had my conscience to fight
    The way I'm feeling, yeah, I just don't feel right

    Never ever have I ever felt so low
    When you gonna take me out of this black hole?
    Never ever have I ever felt so sad
    The way I'm feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

    Never ever have I had to find
    I've had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
    I've never ever had my conscience to fight
    The way I'm feeling, yeah, I just don't feel right

    I'll keep searching
    Deep within my soul
    For all the answers
    Don't wanna hurt no more

    I need peace, gotta feel at ease
    Need to be
    Free from pain, going insane
    My heart aches, yeah

    Sometimes vocabulary runs through my head
    The alphabet runs right from A to Z
    Conversations, hesitations in my mind
    You got my conscience asking questions that I can't find

    I'm not crazy
    I'm sure I ain't done nothing wrong
    And now I'm just waiting
    'Cause I heard that this feeling won't last that long

    Never ever have I ever felt so low
    When ya gonna take me out of this black hole?
    Never ever have I ever felt so sad
    The way I'm feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

    Never ever have I had to find
    I've had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
    I've never ever had my conscience to fight
    The way I'm feeling, yeah, I just don't feel right

    Never ever have I ever felt so low
    When ya gonna take me out of this black hole?
    Never ever have I ever felt so sad
    The way I'm feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

    Never ever have I had to find
    I've had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
    I've never ever had my conscience to fight
    The way I'm feeling, yeah, I just don't feel right

    Never ever have I ever felt so low
    When ya gonna take me out of this black hole?
    Never ever have I ever felt so sad
    The way I'm feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

    Never ever have I had to find
    I've had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
    I've never ever had my conscience to fight
    The way I'm feeling, yeah, I just don't feel right

    Never ever have I ever felt so low
    When ya gonna take me out of this black hole?
    Never ever have I ever felt so sad
    The way I'm feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

    Never ever have I had to find
    I've had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
    I've never ever had my conscience to fight
    The way I'm feeling, yeah, I just don't feel right

    You can tell me to my face
    You can tell me on the phone
    Uh, you can write it in a letter, babe
    'Cause I really need to know

    You can tell me to my face
    You can tell me on the phone
    Ooh, you can write it in a letter, babe
    'Cause I really need to know

    You can write it in a letter, babe
    You can write it in a letter, babe Writer/s: Esmail Jazayeri, Sean Mather, Shaznay Lewis
