Carpenters – The Uninvited Guest lyrics

Her ghost is there

I can see the outline of her shadow traced in the air

Sometimes I see her bended over your shoulder

I think what lies has she told you

And I see a smile light up your face

You like what she says

And I wanna cry, it's killin' me

But I play dumb instead

(*) She's the uninvited guest who lives in our house

She's the other woman who's on your mind

Who's in your life

I'd have to be blind not to see it, not to feel it

And I'm runnin' second best

To the uninvited guest and it's breaking my heart

You don't know how I know

If it all was in the open, you'd deny that it it's so

Just like the old song "Torn Between Two Lovers"

It's not happening to others

It's happening to you and me and the pain is intense

I should leave you but I love you though

It doesn't make sense

Repeat (*)

I should leave you but I love you though

It doesn't make sense

Repeat (*)

It's breaking my heart
