Two strangers meet and fall in love
The way it's meant to be
Their love is pure and meant to last
As anyone can see

They start a family like lovers do
Two kids and brand new house
They fight the world to make it better
This husband and his spouse

They both attend the PTA
Their football games and such
They always do the best they can
But soon it becomes too much

The world keeps getting heavier
And they start to grow apart
Then distance sets up residence
Inside the lover's hearts

Then inside an empty courtroom
Custody becomes complete
Now on every other weekend
Is where two strangers meet
