Before the tears I've cried
Have even dried
She'll be with him
They'll look in each other's eyes
And with her lips still warm with lies
She'll kiss him

And though she knows she's wrong
She just keeps on
Keepin' me hangin' on
Tell me:

Chorus:
What's a man to do
When the one he's promised to
Finds somebody new
Should I just stand by
Watch the love I've lived for die
Lord I wish I knew
Tell me what's a man to do

Maybe I'll make a stand
Or should I just wash my hands
Of her forever
But I've never been alone
Except for here at home
When they're together

And though I know it's wrong
I let her go on
Keepin' me hangin' on

Repeat chorus
