thinkin’ bout my ex lyrics – janet jackson

when i first met you
i swear that i was straight with you
i wasn’t looking for n*body new
i just needed someone to talk to
you said you were cool and understood
but now you caught feelings like i knew you would
and you sitting there with a broken heart
cause i gave you my body and not my heart

[chorus]
when i’m holding you late at night
i’m thinkin’ bout my ex
when i’m kissing you and look at you
i’m thinkin’ bout my ex
and i’m sorry i didn’t mean to hurt you
and i know sorry doesn’t mend your broken heart

[verse 2]
baby i have to be
unselfish and true to me
cause i’m not where i really want to be
and it’s nothing with you
it’s all me
i toss and turn all night when i sleep
want and reaching for someone who use to be
said it must be some karma thing
cause i can’t seem to let go and love again

[chorus 2]
when i lay with you i close my eyes
i’m thinkin’ ’bout my ex
when i’m touching you gently
i’m thinkin’ ’bout my ex
and i’m sorry i didn’t mean to hurt you
and i know sorry doesn’t mend your broken heart
when i’m listing to music i’m thinking’ ’bout my ex
in a bubble bath with the candles lit
i’m thinking ’bout my ex
and i’m sorry i didn’t mean to hurt you
and i know sorry doesn’t mend your broken heart

[bridge]

you’re beautiful
i don’t wanna take the sp*ce from someone else
so let me go
and do a little soul searchin’ for myself
i’m so sorry that
i pulled you in and let it get this far
you know i never meant to break your heart

[chorus 3]
at the shopping mall or movies
i’m thinkin’ ’bout my ex
at the restaurant while i’m eating
i’m thinkin’ ’bout my ex
and i’m sorry i didn’t mean to hurt you
and i know sorry doesn’t mend your broken heart
while you talk to me i drift away
i’m thinkin’ ’bout my ex
when you ask me what i’m thinkin’
i’m thinkin’ ’bout my ex
and i’m sorry i didn’t mean to hurt you
and i know sorry doesn’t mend your broken heart

[repeat till fade]

you know it’s not who you think it is
