Little girl, just keep on waiting
For that man to give you a life
You keep on hoping
So this prince can save you
Keep on dreaming his scandalous lie
For your love is he the hero
Does he know that your begging him please
Where angels dare, the devils fill that need
In your despair does he get up to leave

At the start of his goodbye
Do you ever realize
That you never get the chance
All you get is alibis
When smoke begins to fade
And you're standing face to face
Does he kiss you in the way to say
You're the other woman, the other woman

Wear that dress, the one you rely on (mmmmm)
Slit up high, that shows off your wares
And when he's arriving give him that invitation
Keep on wishing
On his dollars and cares
For your love he is your hero, yes
Even though you are begging him, please, please
Woman I'm scared you risks are never-ending
And don't you pretend
You don't live what you dream

At the start of his goodbyes
Do you ever realize
That you never get the chance
All you get is lullabies
When smoke begins to fade
And you standing face to face
Does he kiss you in the way to say
You're the other woman, the other woman
You always be the other woman
You always be the other woman

Baby
Trust me,
I've been there before
You don't
Know him
I know him more

At the start of his goodbye
Do you ever realize
That you never get the chance
All you get is lullabies
When smoke begins to fade
And you standing face to face
Does he kiss you in the way to say
You're the other woman, the other woman

    Even if the man isn't married, he doesn't plan to ever. He wants to lead a free life with no woman to chain him down. He loves to be adored and loved by women but in the morning, she'll have to go back to her life. She loves him but understands that there can't be any future between them but enjoys to spend time with him. Maybe he doesn't love her the way she does but wants to see her happy and she's dreaming that he's the one and they'll live happilly ever after though she'll have to live in the shadow of the other woman who he loves. There have been many before her and there will be many after. He won't stop.
