The Other Man

You know he’s not the one for you but that’s no fault of mine.
He knows that I’m a friend of yours but doesn’t know I’ve crossed the line.
We’ve all been in one situation or another we regret.
I know you’ve got a man in the picture but it hasn’t stopped me yet.
Now I’m the other man, no one’s rootin for me.

If I’m the other man, nature will abhorr me.
You know I want to keep my distance, does it happen anyway?

He knows you’re going to drift apart and there’s nothing he can say.
I know that he’s a stand-up guy, but that’s none of my concern.
We’ve all been in one situation or another, it’s my turn.

To be the other man, no one’s sympathising,
When you’re the other man that everyone despises.

The love that I’ve still unbeknownst to you.
He’s going to find out that the rumours are true.

He’ll found out so I’ll tell you because,
I know you’ve got a man in the picture but it hasn’t stopped me yet.
You gotta find out before he does.
We’ve all been in one situation or another we regret.
Now I’m the other man. No one’s rootin for me.

Yeah, no one sympathises,
If I’m the other man, nature will abhorr me.

When you’re the other man, that everyone despises.
Yeah, yeah,
We’ve all been in one situation or another,
We’ve all been in one situation or another,
We’ve all been in one situation or another
