From the Movie, Cadillac Records.
You can hear the pain, sadness and all the emotion in her voice. She is truly amazing not many people can actually make you feel their pain even if she is just acting Beyoncé is able to make you feel. That is why she is the best!
Etta James wrote this song and it’s been covered by a lot of people but Beyoncé owns this one. It’s really a very, very beautiful cover of this song. No one even comes close to this soulful rendition. If she were around when the Motown Sound was going strong she would have ruled the times.
Something told me it was over
When I saw you and her talkin’
Something deep down in my soul said, ‘Cry, girl’
When I saw you and that girl walkin’ around
Whoo, I would rather, I would rather go blind, boy
Then to see you walk away from me, child, no
Whoo, so you see, I love you so much
That I don’t wanna watch you leave me, baby
Most of all, I just don’t, I just don’t wanna be free, no
Whoo, whoo, I was just, I was just, I was just
Sittin here thinkin’, of your kiss and your warm embrace, yeah
When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips now, baby
Revealed the tears that was on my face, yeah
Whoo and baby, baby, I’d rather, I’d rather be blind, boy
Then to see you walk away, see you walk away from me, yeah
Whoo, baby, baby, baby, I’d rather be blind…
