Most woman say they do not understand
How for three years, I've wanted you to be my man
As you've lived there with another woman
And your freedom is slow at coming

About five-ten I call you
The thoughts haunt me that you're untrue
In her bed at a nap sleeping
The knot in my stomach's seeping

Because your phone keeps on ringing
The doubt in me keeps on bringing
Thoughts that love is work sometimes a sacrifice
And to me you stay away---give her your nice

The thoughts in my soul take over
Physically I cannot be your lover
Feeling sick, jilted in my mind
Here with me alone in this time

"Give up on him" says the voice in me
Turn away your love and set him free
The thoughts of them drive on the blame
That I'm not good enough to have his last name

Just when I was feeling as though I was
Just when I start loving you with my heart because
She's gone away for 10 days on vacation
And when you go home my concentration

Is not on the thoughts that obsess my mind
That you're with her being so kind
To her living there talking to her with your voice
When she is gone, I know I am your choice

And I am good enough again
To go on being sweeter Candy to you boyfriend
You're alone too in your house like me
And apart our love continues to let it be

The kisses on my lips that I still taste
The work that I can do because replaced
Is the thoughts of fear that you'll be leaving
Back to her home where I'm not good enough and I'll be grieving

Because for many, although flawed, I'm good enough, I am
There's not the thoughts or words I slam
Behind the doors here in this dark hall
Of my soul when you don't answer because she's there with you, when I call.
