somebody else

would have swam across the sea
would have crawled on hand and knee
you could be alone with me
but you loved somebody else

would have written you a book
in whatever life I took
never give a second look
to anybody else

over a million miles I’d run
under a thousand hours of sun
to have the kind of fun
I have when I’m with you

I had put my life on rest
for you, I’d want the best
what was it, some damn test
because you are not with me

worked so hard to try
even ripped my heart out dry
and never wondered why
you are with someone else

if I could open up that door
walk that purple shore
I never would want more
and die a happy soul

your every want and care
would float up in the air
why are you way over there
with somebody else

know this much as true
the pain that I’ve been through
I’d do it again – for you
though you loved somebody else
