It's the third hardest thing I'll ever do
Leavin' here without you
And the second hardest thing I'll ever do
Is tellin her about you
She's been good to me
When things were goin' rough
How can I tell her now, good ain't good enough
Oh, the hardest thing I've ever had to do
Is holding her, and loving you

If she'd give me one good reason I'd be gone
She ain't done, one thing wrong
So don't expect me to just walk out of the door
I still love her, but I love you more
She's been good to me

When things weren't goin' right
She made my days long before you made my nights
So, the hardest thing I've ever had to do
Is holding her, and loving you

Yeah, the hardest thing I'll ever have to do
Is holding her, and loving you
Girl, the hardest thing I'll ever have to do
Is holding her, and loving you

    I'm really going through this, and I am leaving in a couple of months with the one I fell in love with, my wife has never done me wrong in fact she has been a blessing to me and my son and we really have something special. But she irritates me durring the day and the other one makes my night. To be honest the second hardest thing iv had to do is telling her about my new fling, and it gets even more difficult when I'm holding my wife and loving my sweet Ness. stay faithful ladies and gentleme. the grass always seems greener but it's just weeds.

    Going thru that now and I'm the 'other' woman. Except he Isn't married to her he has two kids. He's not technically with her and he even had another kid with a new girl but this first girl threatens to kill herself if he leaves her. And I can't go on loving him if he doesn't let her go

    I really hate the meaing to this song. It is sooo sad. I cry every time I hear this song. Because I think it can almost happen in any marriage. But his voice and the tune is great. I just pray to God this isn't me one day!
