"I Saw Red" as written by Eric Turner, Steven Chamberlin, Jerry Dixon, Joey Cagle and John Oswald....
Ooh it must be magic
How inside your eyes
I see my destiny
Every time we kiss
I feel you breathe your love so deep inside of me
If the moon and stars should fall
They'd be easy to replace
I would lift you up to heaven
And you would take their place

Then I saw red
When I opened up the door
I saw red
My heart just spilled onto the floor
And I didn't need to see his face
I saw yours
I saw red when I closed the door

I don't think I'm gonna love you anymore

Everyday I wake up
I thank God that you are still a part of me
We've opened up the door to which
So many people never find the key
And if the sun should ever fail to send its light
We would burn a thousand candles
And make everything alright

Then I saw red
When I opened up the door
I saw red
My heart just spilled onto the floor
And I didn't need to see his face
I saw yours
I saw red when I closed the door
I don't think I'm gonna love you anymore

I've been hurt
And I've been blind
I'm not sure that I'll be fine
I never thought it would end this way
Ooh it must be magic

    General CommentThought it might have been about a room in a house that got painted the wrong color. Well it has been 10 years since my last relationship. So go figure! Don't double lock the door when you close it. 'Cause even if you find the key-it won't work!

    General CommentWritten from Jani Lane's heart.
    The song details his feelings when he walked in on his ex cheating on him with Bret Michaels.

    Every once in a while, Warrant would surprise us with some very poignant lines.
    I think that this is one of their best:
