lyrics

We share the same love, but I’m not one to share
The way you’re competing makes cheating unfair
It’s clear I’ll be winning this prize we both cherish
Your jealousy turns you a shade most garish

You’re just a child, and I need a wife
You're making it hard for me to be polite
a man past his prime can waste his life
I'm Losing my sense of what is wrong and right

I’d like to stay friends, but you ‘re waging a war
sending me signals I can’t ignore
I try to resist, but the high road is at an end
You’d better be ready for the rules I’ll bend

You’re just a child, and I need a wife
You're making it hard for me to be polite
a man past his prime can waste his life
I'm Losing my sense of what is wrong and right

Maybe I can pay you off
allow your distractions to move you
teenagers are a fickle lot
always running off to something new

The battle is ended and no one has won
While we were distracted she simply moved on
When you're over protective love slips through your fingers
Losing the one that you wanted to linger

You’re just a child, and I need a wife
You're making it hard for me to be polite
a man past his prime can waste his life
I'm Losing my sense of what is wrong and right
