Lyrics

I got her off my hands,
Now since she’s off my hands,
I can’t get her off my mind.

Haven’t slept a wink in a week,
I’m up with the shadows,
Playing hide and seek.
gee, I never thought that I would
be the one to cry,
but now I’m the cry-in-est kind.

Nobody knows how my poor heart aches,
I guess I’m really paying
For my mistakes.

So, I got her off my hands,
and since she’s off my hands,
I can’t get her out my mind.

Nobody knows how my poor heart aches,
I guess I’m really paying
For my mistakes.

So, I got her off my hands,
and since she’s off my hands,
I can’t get her out my mind.
