lyrics

She comes to bed every night with me
but lately there's something in her eyes,
she thinks that I can't see
Well it's a fire burning, but it doesn't burn for me.
Now I'm afraid to ask her - baby, who is he?

But you know that I love her,
but I'm gonna have to let her go
'Cause I won't be second in line
to someone I don't know.

I'm gonna let her go.

She's my best friend's wife
and I know it's wrong
I just can't resist her body,
she throws it on me so strong.
And I know when he finds out,
there'll be such sorrow.
But she's good for my ego -
so I won't let her go.

And I know it's selfish,
that I just can't leave her alone
and I know he'll never forgive me,
for wrecking his home

But I still can't let her go.

But you know that I love her,
but I'm gonna have to let her go
'Cause I won't be second in line
to somebody I don't know.

I'm gonna let her go.

You vowed to never do this to me,
but now you sing a new song.
Two became one, one became three
and I got this feeling so strong.
And these feelings of love,
have been replaced by Something New
and not even Heaven above -
could make me want you.

And you say you still love me, baby -
well maybe that's so.
But the way you've been acting lately,
my darlin' - I just don't care to know.

It's time for you to go.

I know I said I love you,
that you were all I need.
But you love yourself more -
than I could ever supersede.
Selfishness outweighs self preservation,
your narcisism cannot please.
I'm done having you screw me over,
he can screw me under - it's all I need.

But I know that I love him - but I gotta let him go
I refuse to be second in line to his own ego.

I've already let him go.
