I loved you before you met him
And I loved you even after you were wed
I told you I'd never forget you
That I'd be here when his love was dead.
Now you're back in my arms and I'm happy
And I guess he knows just where he stands
'Cause when he lied and cheated on you
That's when he dropped the world in my hands.
--- Instrumental ---
Didn't he realize what he was losing
To give you up he must have been insane
And to him it just didn't seem to matter
That his love was another man's game.
It's his right if he wants to be a fool
But I wonder if he really understands
That when he gave your love back to me
That's when he dropped the world in my hands...
