Another Life

We met again after 23 years
Laughed, reminisced through all the tears

Now’s our time to begin this adventure together
Dancing, swimming, just doing whatever 

But now he seems strange like he has something to hide
Is it me or just my stupid pride?

Running around the house like paparazzi is outside
Trying not to be seen, always trying to hide

Is this fool on drugs or just paranoid or such
Whatever it is, he’s driving me nuts

Never wanting to go anywhere just leave him be
Maybe he just wants to be alone with me?

Can’t be that because he’s always in a hurry
Stops by in a flash then out with a fury

After much thought and inquiry I found he has a wife
This idiot was playing me because he had another life

You jerk, you idiot, just tell the truth I plead
I would rather be alone than caught up in your dirty deed!
