An urgent call in the dead of night
A voice that whispers "Now"
A voice that trembles like a winter leaf
Before it hits the ground
She leaves a crack in the bedroom door
To slip the wire through
Her husband sleeping in a empty bed
No witness to the truth

It's a oneway conversation
I try to tell her no
But it's a hopeless situation
I just can't let her go
And here she is another desperate night
In the arms of the other man
Another day in a double life
Every moment that she holds me tight
I know just where I stand
As I am the other man

She leaves my room like a criminal
To beat the morning light
Rehearsing ever little alibi
To get it water tight

There's a note on the dresser top
It's the same old classic line
She says she's leaving him
It's just a question of time
It's a no win situation

'Cause I just can't let her go
And here she is another desperate night
In the arms of the other man
Another day in a double life
Every moment that she holds me tight
I know just where I stand

As I am the other man [Repeat: x4]
