    You've got another love
    and I know it
    Someone who adores you
    Just like me
    Hanging on you words
    like they were gold
    Thinking that she understands
    your soul
    Poor girl
    just like me

    You're breaking another heart
    and I know it
    and there's nothing
    I can do
    If I try to tell her
    She'll misunderstand
    and make me go
    poor girl
    just like me

    You're going to leave her too
    and i know it
    she'll never know
    what made you go
    she'll cry and wonder
    what went wrong
    then she'll begin
    to sing this song
    poor girl
    just like me




    P.S. I was ONCE that "Poor girl"
    on both ends!
