about

My very different reprise to Carrie Underwoods "Before He Cheats" that could instead be called after he cheats.

lyrics

Certainly I've never felt so uncertain
I'm used to playing my role behind the scenes
in love I wait patiently behind the curtains
for a cue to enter stage left
but like others, you haven't called for me

Baby am I just playing along
lost inside a song I don't understand
wanting something you'll never give to me,
Foolishly seeking out a hand
that won't reach out and be
all that I can see.

honestly I've never been so impatient
working for intangible touch
a feeling that burns hotter than resentment
is that worry here again
that I'm just not enough

Baby why am I playing along;
lost inside a verse I don't understand
wanting something you'll never give to me,
Foolishly seeking out a hand
that won't reach out and be
more than you ever thought you would,
if you only could
be all that I can see.

Are we wasting precious time,
staring at a word we just can't understand
wanting something I'll never be for you,
foolishly looking into my hands
like I could pull you through
in ways I feel I'll never be that man
and even if I could
would I be good enough
good enough for you?
