Another Woman's Man

from The Bellevue Years

When you're in love with another woman's man
Don't bother telling friends about it
They never understand how you can give your love so freely
To one who doesn't want your hand
When you're in love with Another Woman's Man

You never look so beautiful or feel quite so alive
As on nights when you're nervously waiting for him to arrive
Or on days he sneaks off early just to be by your side
You never look so beautiful or feel quite so alive

But if you should see him on the street with her
You turn and look the other way
'Cause you don't think you can compete with her
So you try to keep your lovin' him at bay

Oh but then, when you are together
Nothing can compare
With the loving that he brings you
The passion that you share
Or the pain
When you hear his footsteps
Echo down the stairs
When you are together nothing can compare

'Cause when you're in love with Another Woman's Man
You always fall in deeper than either of you planned
You ignore the danger signals
Like you ignore his wedding band
When you're in love with Another Woman's Man

When you see him on the street with her
And you know you will
You turn
And look
And run the other way
Run the other way
'Cause you don't think you can compete with her
So you try to keep your lovin' him at bay

When you're in love with Another Woman's Man
You gotta keep your lovin' him at bay
