The Other Man

by Brett Matthew West

The Other Man

She came to me late last night crying
With a sad story of woe she knew I wasn't buying
No, she didn't wanna tear my world in two
She's still in love with you. That ain't nothing new
I'm the other man

So, I stood back and let her walk away
Cause I knew she'd be back in just another day
The vows that she made, and her wedding band
Don't mean a thing to her now that
I'm the other man

You don't know who I am I understand
So, I'm gonna help you out the best I can
Ten long years I've watched her waste on you
Waiting for you to do the things a man should do

Every fight you've ever had I know about
All the tears she's cried each time you walked out
Now, I'm gonna make my stand
Just because I know I can
I'm here to take her off your hand
I'm the other man

Love was never meant to be this way at all
And, you can bet you're about to take a fall
It don't matter what you do
You and her are through. I'm telling you
I'm the other man

This has been coming on for quite some time
Now, I'm gonna get you off her worried mind
I'll have her here with me. You just wait and see
I'm the other man

If you'd been there for her like you should have been
Putting out the fires at home that rage within
I wouldn't be standing here today
stealing her from you
You've got a lot to learn it's true
I'm the other man

A little love, and a hug, and a kiss or two
These are the facts of life I'm telling you
I've seen it all before.
Been down there on the floor
That's what pain is for
I'm the other man
