Jamie Lenman – A Quiet Understanding lyrics
You two were friends before we met
It's not my place to say it
And he seems like an honest guy
But he looks at you with hungry eyes
All of the time

The thought has never crossed your mind
You feel more like a sister
And he has lovers of his own
But they're more like pretty alibis
And he cannot disguise
The things I recognize in those eyes

Oh, baby, you know what I'm saying
You don't want it to be true
But you can never know a brother's heart like I do
'cause I have been where he is now
He's awful nice
But he looks at you with hungry eyes
Oh, yes...

I wouldn't wish to make it worse
By raising heck about it
There is a quiet understanding
That I simply beat him to the prize
But if you must get wise
The answer ever lies in those eyes
In those eyes...

It's that look in his eyes
