It was always you and me and him
A whiskey sour, beer and gin
We were having fun
When the night was over
Youd go off together leaving me alone,
All alone
I stayed up every night, I had to find a way
I had to get to you
So I told you he was stepping outside
I said when you broke down and cried
Why dont you come to me

* she said I love you like a brother
And thats how its got to stay
Because I dont need no reminder
Of the love that went away
And the more I desire,
The less it does inspire
Because she says I remind her
Of the love she left behind

I found myself in the same old place
In the bar, another lonely night to spend
But the first thing I saw when I walked in
Was my almost lover, and my ex best friend
She was drinking all alone
And he was on the telephone
They wouldnt look at me
I went outside, I wanted to cry
Its a lonely life, aint what it used to be

(* repeat 2 times and fade)
