When love forgets

When love forgets, you wait at the door/
wearing the lingerie he bought you before/
when love forgets, you wait for the nice words/
but the words never come and you never get heard/

when love forgets, he changes your views/
and looks at the women in their high heeled shoes/
he dosent respond in the way that he should/
together for years, but this doesn't feel good/

His eyes wander fast to every next cleavage/
your small breasts no contest, you feel you're not needed/
you're just a bit part now, he takes you for granted/
should you move on, the seed has been planted/

you want to be loved and cherished and adored/
not to stay at home washing plates, being bored/
you want to go back when he very first knew you/
in a passionate way his eyes used to view you/

relegated now to a place you don't recognise/
when you laugh the smile does not reach your eyes/
the only affection you gets from the cat/
your still a young woman, how sad is that?

but what you don't notice when you leave the house/
are so many suitors waiting to pounce/
they notice your hair and your eyes and your spirit/
your old man at home does not think to fear it/

He's got you where he wants you, a dutiful housewife/
he thinks your happy with your stepford wives life/
But be warned Mr. conceited, while you lie to yourself/
She will be the muse of a handsome someone else/

He will love her and cherish her and fulfill her every need/
show her the good things and devour her with greed/
while they lie naked entangled debating her dull life/
you should have been loving your stay at home housewife/
