The first single release from the Black album 'Blind Faith'. This is a special single mix of the track - different to that on the album.


Did I do wrong
To hurry on…
Things moving so fast
I couldn’t hold on?
I’m the kind of fool
That gets offended when I’m lied to
Deep breath no shock
When everybody tries to

We could see stars
Walk on rainbows
And yet we drive through
The ashes of angels

Have you heard the one about me?
It’s not funny
And no-one’s laughing
But everybody knows it

We could see stars
Walk on rainbows
And yet we drive through
The ashes of angels

You didn’t know what you had
‘Til it was gone
How many times do
We get to hear that song?
That song that that song “I didn’t mean to do wrong”!
