The Other Man

Photo by: Nick Moore (@the_nickmoore)

Not a day goes by that I don’t think about you

Maybe I don’t say this loud enough

But I only have eyes for you

Even though you pay more attention to him

He doesn’t care about your happiness the way I do

My intentions speak louder than his words

My heart and body yearn for you

So it hurts to see you fall for him

I remind you of how much you mean to me, I guess that isn’t enough

You keep looking for him in me,

I guess I’ll never be enough

I cry in the shadows, so I can smile at you in the light

I comfort myself with hope, even though I get lonely at night

While you chase after the other man,

Wake up and look around you

With a resolute endeavor

Choose what is best for you

Because I can’t wait forever
