From “Bob Malone” (1998)

by Bob Malone

I don’t know how I keep mistaking you
For someone I really need in my life
When there’s really no mistaking
That I’m someone just to get you through the night
You that there’s a man you are in love with
And it sure as hell ain’t me
You say he makes you feel so wonderful
And he’s all you’ll ever need

CHORUS I
You know I should be happy for you
You’ve got the man of your dreams
But there’s one thing I just don’t understand
What are you doing here with me?

You don’t come around too often
Just enough to keep me hanging on
And sometimes it feel so right to be beside you
That I forget that it’s so wrong

CHORUS II
But you know I should be happy for you
You’ve got the man of your dreams
But if he really gives you everything you need
What are you doing here with me?

BRIDGE:
And when he makes love to you
And you close your eyes
When you call his name
Do I ever cross your mind?

I can’t seem to walk away from you
Although I know that we’d be better off apart
‘Cause every time you kiss me baby
It just breaks my heart

CHORUS I
