There are times when a woman has to say what's on her mind
Even though she knows how much it's gonna hurt
Before I say another word, let me tell you "I love you"
Let me hold you close, and say these words as gently as I can
"There's been another man that I've needed and I've loved,
But that doesn't mean I love you less,
And he knows he can't possess me, and he knows he never will,
There's just this empty place inside of me that only he can fill"

(chorus)
Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool
Loving both of you is breaking all the rules
Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool
Loving you both is breaking all the rules

You mustn't think you failed me just because there's someone else
You were the first real love I ever had,
And all the things I ever said
I swear they still are true
For no one else can have the part of me I gave to you

Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool
Loving both of you is breaking all the rules
Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool
Loving you both is breaking all the rules

Couldn't really blame you if you turned and walked away
But with everything I feel inside, I'm asking you to stay

Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool
Loving both of you is breaking all the rules
Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool
Loving you both is breaking all the rules

Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool
Loving both of you is breaking all the rules
Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool
Loving you both is breaking all the rules

    When I broke up with my girlfriend SG, all she wanted was for me to listen to this song so I'd understand why things gone wrong. I felt cheated back then and the title of this song even made it worst. Now, tears welled in my eyes while reading the lyrics as to what this song really means. She is now married to the 'another man' soon to have a baby, and I am here trying to beat the shit of turning away. MJC.

    Its real. When a woman cheats its bc theres something missing in her relationship~you can be married, have a home, love ur husband and have everthing materialistic that you've ever wanted, yet the passion may be missing and this other person (an adventure) fullfills you in way ur husband never did and never will. You find the perfect relationship in 2 people. Its easily interpretted as cheating but to the woman its fullfilment.

    Hearing this song and the emotions behind it is one of the reasons why I am all to glad stay out of relationships completely and keep busy with endeavors that give me satisfaction. A pretty song expressing an ugly situation is heartbreaking and being in a relationship only causes great sorrow.
