You know sometimes in your life
You may find it hurts to be in love
Specially when you and the one you love
Already belong to somebody else

You're tied to her and I'm tied to him
And we don't wanna hurt either one of them
That's how it is

When you're married but not to each other
You gotta go home in the middle of the night
Try and pretend everything's alright
But it ain't, no, it ain't

When you're married but not to each other
Make believe that you've been good
Give your love to the one you should
But you can't, no, you can't

'Cause you're tied to her, I'm tied to him
We don't wanna hurt either one of them
So what can you do, what can you do

When you're married but not to each other
You gotta be careful everywhere you go
Tryin' to avoid everyone you know
'Cause people talk, you know they talk

When you're married but not to each other
You've gotta make up alabies
Hopin' they don't sound like lies
'Cause if we get caught, and you might get caught

Hurry up and love him
Hurry up and please him
And when it gets right
You've got to leave him
You better leave him

'Cause you're tied to her, I'm tied to him
We don't wanna hurt either one of them
That's how it is, that's how it is

When you're married
But not to each other

Hurry up and love him
Hurry up and please him
And when it gets right
You've got to leave him
You better leave him
