Other Guy.

A little something inspired by all the men who've been in the "other guy" situation. Hope it all works out! Sucks to be you and in love... lol. Just kidding :)

Other Guy

I’ve given you my heart
But you’re tearing it in two
And I’m doing all I can
To understand what you’re going through
My pride is telling me to leave
But I know its too damn late
Girl, you’re the one I love
I know that’s no mistake.
You said it ain’t a thing
That this problem will go away
You said I’m the one you want
And you keep telling me to stay.

Then tell me why I feel this way
That I shouldn’t even try
Because no matter what I do or say
I’ll still just be the other guy.

My homies told me to keep my distance,
That you weren’t worth the risk
But my heart was already yours
From the moment we first kissed.
I can’t stop thinking about you
Even if it won’t do me any good
Because while you occupy my mind
Your heart still lingers with the other dude.
You said it ain’t a thing
That I’m the guy you want
You said he’s just a minor problem
That you just can’t confront.

Then tell me why I feel this way
That I shouldn’t even try
Because no matter what I do or say
I’ll still just be the other guy.

When I hold your hands or kiss your lips
Or look into your eyes
I’m hoping that there is some truth
Behind this curtain of lies.
Sometimes I wish I didn’t feel this way
That I could stop loving you so much
But I know that without you with me
I’d be a lame man without his crutch.
You said it ain’t a thing
That you need me more than ever
You said that you’ll get over him
And that we’ll always be together.

Then tell me why I feel this way
That I shouldn’t even try
Because no matter what I do or say
I’ll still just be the other guy.

I’m hoping one day you’ll realize
Just how much I’ve given up
For the love I have for you
I just can’t get enough.
But until the day comes
That you’ll be all mine
I’ll always be here for you
Waiting to be your only guy.
