Greatest X

Album: Discipline (2008)
  • [Repeat x8]
    Yeah

    My momma told me that this could happen to me
    That he would grow to be this sexy man
    But I just couldn't see
    Cause I had my blinders on
    I was in my zone
    And I had the thought of us in my head
    Somehow I turned us all off
    And then I met him, and he wasn't you
    Then I dropped my head thinkin' what should I do
    Oh I

    [Chorus]
    I loved you, and
    You love me
    And I just couldn't see tomorrow, baby
    And I cared for you
    And I didn't see us through
    Now I know in my heart you will always be
    The greatest x ever

    Now I can't do a simple thing like fall asleep
    Cause I can't close my eyes
    Without a day with you in my dreams, dreams
    Sometimes I call you phone just to hear you tone
    And I never say nothin'
    Wait just a couple of seconds to hear you breathe
    And then I'm gone
    But he's not like you
    Can't help but to hold my head
    Thinkin' what did I do
    Oh I

    [Chorus]

    And I know that it's all my fault
    And it would be a lie if I said you didn't cross my mind at all
    How do I erase from my days that's shaded and blue
    All my love's with you, oh

    [Chorus]
    The greatest x ever
    The greatest x ever
    The greatest x ever
    The greatest x ever
    The greatest x ever Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER A. STEWART, TERIUS YOUNGDELL NASH
