The stubborn love of a woman
Cost me the brother love of a man
What I got is a lover
And what I lost is a friend
Which of these would follow me
Until my dying day
I can't say
I can't say
No, I can't say

Well another time and another place
My hand would be across your face
But I can only bring myself to cry
So this is how our story ends
Betrayed by two of my best friends
Well I can think of kinder ways to die

Now I was standing on a pew
Just clapping for the bride and groom
And you had gone to meet him at a bar
When I heard your message on my phone
I ran outside into the snow
I wept for you, I leapt into my car

The stubborn love of a woman
Cost me the brother love of a man
What I got is a lover
And what I lost is a friend
Which of these would follow me
Until my dying day
I can't say
I can't say
No, I can't say

My hands tremble and shake
My head is swollen with ache
Let's see how much hurt my soul can take, yeah

Well I yelled at him and he yelled at me
And he said "Good luck" and I said "We'll see"
And I stormed off and there our friendship went
And I got her back but I could've cried
When I was laying by her side
Looking at the roses that he sent

The stubborn love of a woman
Cost me the brother love of a man
What I got is a lover
And what I lost is a friend
Which of these would follow me
Until my dying day
I can't say
I can't say
No, I can't say

I can't say
I can't say
No, I can't say

Well my story has a moral too:
"Damned if I don't, damned if I do"
Well stubborn love has bested me again
