"warning" as written by and Alex/hickling Dmochowski....
Now the first day that I met ya
I was looking in the sky
When the sun turned all a blur
And the thunderclouds rolled by

The sea began to shiver
And the wind began to moan
It must've been a sign for me
To leave you well alone

I was born without you, baby
But my feelings were a little bit too strong

You never said you love me
And I don't believe you can
'Cause I saw you in a dream
And you were with another man

You looked so cool and casual
And I tried to look the same
But now I've got to know ya
Tell me who am I to blame?

I was born without you, baby
But my feelings were a little bit too strong

Now the whole wide world is movin'
'Cause there's iron in my heart
I just can't keep from cryin'
'Cause you say we've got to part

Sorrow grips my voice as I stand here all alone
And watch you slowly take away
A love I've never known

I was born without you, baby
But my feelings were a little bit too strong
Just a little bit too strong

Now the whole wide world is movin'
'Cause there's iron in my heart
I just can't keep from cryin'
'Cause say we've got to part

Sorrow grips my voice as I stand here all alone
And watch you slowly take away
A love I've never known

I was born without you, baby
But my feelings were a little bit too strong
Just a little bit too strong

    General Commentthis songs awesome. i was waiting for it to end but it wouldn't they'd bust out a 3 min guitar solo, then they'd pause, jam, solo, pause, jam, solo, solo...
    but it's too damn great to not appreciate.

    General CommentIt's a cover of some Russian Blues-Rock band's biggest song or something, I don't know for sure.

    The only thing I know is that it's awesome. I bought We Sold Our Souls For Rock N Roll because it seemed like cheap way to own Sabbath's biggest hits. All I knew of was Iron Man and War Pigs. Then I hear this bluesy masterpiece and become obsessed with their sound and Ozzy's unbelieveable vocals. One of the truly great under rated Sabbath songs, or any kind of song for that matter.

    General Commentthis song is black sabbath the way they should be. Ozzie's voice at his best. amazing guitar solos. blues riffs a plenty. the bass line all over the place, yet perfectly synchronised with the guitar. yes, its a cover, but sabbath do it so well!!

    My InterpretationWhat a friend told me a while back was that this song is about a man who had an obsession over a woman he cannot have. He said the guitar solos infer that he ends up killing her (the solos get increasingly intense, the final guitar solo before the final verse especially feels like something sinister is happening). I guess the lyrics could point to this a little bit. I doubt this is entirely true, but its how I like to picture it every time I hear this song.
