Takes One To Know One

by Brett Matthew West

Takes One To Know One

Right from the start she was the one for me
One night in her arms and it had to be
I planned to love her till time was no more
But, there was someone at home who evened the score

She stood beside me each step of the way
She was the sunlight that lit up my day
Together forever to have and to hold
These were the lies that she had been told

So many nights she sat home alone
Crying her heart out on a telephone
She needed someone to call her own
I should have been there and she would not be gone

Somehow we managed to fall apart
Needing each other and a brand new start
Love has a way of blinding your sight
Till you can no longer tell the wrong from the right

I can not blame her for finding someone new
A woman needs her good loving too
I'll let her go, of that, there is no doubt
Too late, at long last, I figured her out

It takes one to know one was all she had to say
It takes one to know one, so, that's the game you play
It takes one to know one have it your way
It takes one to know one. I'm leaving today
