could i’ve been so blind lyrics – black crowes

how could i’ve been so blind?
so empty that i’ve never felt warm
can i spell it out?
turn myself out of my home

lookin’ like a fool
feelin’ even worse than it seems
tryin’ hard as nails
believin’ only in myself

and now it looks like innocence is gone
i know right and i know what’s wrong
feeling lonely that’s the way it goes
sometimes

but my greatest fear
paint a smile from ear to ear
alone and cryin’
babe living like this is no better than dying

i tell you baby things are gonna change
looking like we were caught out in the rain
feeling lonely that’s the way it goes
sometimes

could i ever have been so blind?
could i ever have been so blind?
could i ever have been so blind?
could i ever have been so blind?

could i ever have been so blind?
could i ever have been so blind?

hardest thing i ever had to do
was stand up straight and tell it all to you
look you right in the eye
tell you baby, “sorry but i have lied”

and now it looks like innocence is gone
i know right and i know what’s wrong
feeling lonely that’s the way it goes
sometimes

could i ever have been so blind?
yes, could i ever have been so blind?
could i ever have been so blind?
yes, could i ever have been so blind?
