The Ex

Album: Billy Talent (2003)
  • Well, I looked at her face and then I knew she changed,
    then my heart turned black and then the sky turned gray!
    yeah my heart turned black then the sky turned gray!

    So I sat in my room for 27 days,
    No she never called, I had something to say!
    No she never called, I had something to say!

    Well I don't know much, and I don't know how

    [Chorus]
    Why would she put me through such torture,
    I would have given my life for her,
    She was the one that knocked me over,
    Now I'm alone sitting on the corner

    Well, I heard she's great and her new boyfriend's lame,
    She can go to hell I'll never be the same!
    She can go to hell I'll never be the same!

    And these open wounds will heal with time they say,
    then my heart turned black and then the sky turned gray!
    then my heart turned black and then the sky turned gray!

    Well I don't know much, and I don't know how

    [Chorus: x2]

    Well i don't know much, and i don't know how

    [Chorus: x2]
