Love me like you love your girl

I do my best, I try real hard

To reach that place you call a heart

I'm always waiting second best

Never in a thought that lasts


Always lonely on my own

Is this the night you won't come home?

Should I worry should I care

Of course I do love's so unfair


I made a meal but it's gone cold

It's 1am you're still not home

I wait and wait I watch the clock

I heard your car but you didn't stop


Another hour and then a key

You've finally come home to me

But not for love or to be fed

It's just somewhere to lay your head


I pray some day a time will come

When you might look at me with love

And for an hour exclude the world and

Love me like you love your girl
