If I could... could forget him
I would... please believe me
And I know that I should throw the towel in
But baby it's not... not that easy
You treat me so much better than him
And if I was sane there'd be no competition
But... but I'm in love with someone else
And I'm so sorry
I'm in love with another man
And I know it aint right

You should go and find someone else
Who can treat you right
Give you the world
Someone who understands the man you are
Cause baby you shine so bright
And I would just dim your star
A girl who'll treat you like you treat them
Boy I know there's plenty women
Who would love to have a man like you
But I'm in love with someone else...
I'm so sorry baby
I know I aint right... no no no no no no
For what I did to you baby

I can't explain why it's him and not you
But at the end of the day baby I just don't want to
Cause he aint no doctor
And we always seem to fight, he got the perfect body
And sometimes he don't even treat me right
Oh but when I'm with him, but when I'm with him
When I'm with him, aint nobody else like it
I'm so sorry baby that I have to do this to you
But I can't go on pretending...
Cause I love him, I love him
And I'm so sorry... do you hear me?
I'm so sorry but I love that man
I love that man...
He aint always right , but he's just right for me
I'm in love with another man... and I'm so sorry...
But I love someone else...

    Omg she is preaching on this song! Telling nothing but the truth! I have a man in my life who treats me so good and would never hurt me, but I don't love him. The man I do love sometimes hurts me, but like the other girl said, when we arent fighting and I'm laying in his arms, it's like all the hurt and pain is gone and nothing else in the world matters!

    It's time to be real. Be 4 real. Stop making that man think that you really want him. He busting his butt providing and doing what every woman wants. You than tripped up now and your heart belongs to another man. He got you totally sprung. This man not even treating you right. He not even smart---(no doctor lyric). But you not caught on his vocabulary or how he treating you. Truth be told you like him like that. He the best in the bedroom and that is where you see him. Now stop faking and set your man free. Cause you hurting him. He could really be treated better than that and have someone that will be faithful. Stop lying. To thine ownself be true. You know your in love with another man.

    This song is so true. The last guy I was with I loved him but he treated me so bad. And that caused me to look for something better. I am happy now but there is never a day that goes by that I don't think about him I miss him so much but I know he is not where he needs to be and that who I am with is my future and that I need to put him behind me.

    I'm going through this right now. I fell in love with my ex the day I met him and the feeling was mutual. Our relationship wasn't perfect and those flaws were the reason why we decided to end things. I moved on with someone else and he left town for awhile. But unfortunately the feelings we had for each other never changed. Just by coincidence, me and the new guy were having problems and I told him that we should go back to just being friends but he wants to work things out and my ex came back and so did all if my feelings. Now I have to tell the current guy that it's over and this song is perfect.

    She's trying to explain the best way she knows that even though she loves him, she's in love with someone else. Also that she loves him enough that she knows he'll be happier with someone else that will give their all as he does. She's sorry for the pain it may cause him, but she wants to be happy and wants his happiness as well even if it ain't her.
