  • How did you come up with a day and time
    You didn't tell me you'd changed your mind
    How could I have been so blind
    I didn't know you'd changed your mind

    When you made the decision to get off this ride
    Did you run out of places to go and hide
    Did you know everybody would be surprised
    When you made the decision to get off this ride

    When you made the decision to jump ship
    Once and for all lose your grip
    Did you wax the deck to make it easier to slip
    When you made the decision to jump ship

    When did you start seeing black
    Was it too much good you felt you lacked
    Was it too much weight riding on you back
    When did you start seeing black

    When did you start seeing red
    Did you see me standing over your bed
    Did you hear anything I said
    When did you start seeing red

    When did you start seeing white
    Tell me baby, what was it like
    Was it when you received your last rites
    When did you start seeing white

    Did you use a compass to get out of this place
    Did you ever hear my voice, did you see my face
    Did you finally get tired of running the race
    Did you use a compass to get out of this place

    Did you feel your act was a final truth
    The dramatic ending of a misspent youth
    Did you really feel you had all the proof
    Did you feel your act was a final truth

    Was it hard to finally pull the plug
    Was it hard to receive that final hug
    Did evil triumph over love
    Was it hard to finally pull the plug

    When did you start seeing black
    Was it too much good you felt you lacked
    Was it too much weight riding on you back
    When did you start seeing black

    When did you start seeing red
    Did you see me standing over your bed
    Did you hear anything I said
    When did you start seeing red

    When did you start seeing white
    Tell me baby what was it like
    Was it when you received your last rites
    When did you start seeing white Writer/s: LUCINDA WILLIAMS
