I swallowed my pride

and still made love to you

was I a fool, is that what you thought

or just too much in love


Looking into your eyes

I could see the truth

as much as I hated facing it

I never betrayed you

not once


Your eyes lit up

when you saw her

you listened for the phone to ring

just as I did, always feeling sick inside

you saw that but still went to her


You looked at me

as though I were a fool

who couldn’t see what went on

she knew

she couldn’t

look me in the face


Yet I carried on

like the fool I was

where could I turn

there was no one


After you were gone

she would speak of you with affection

trying to convince me

what I had lost

what had I lost?
