Lyrics

You know he's not the one for you, but that's no fault of mine
He knows that I'm a friend of yours but doesn't know I've crossed the line
I know you've got a man in the picture, but it hasn't stopped me yet
We've all been in one situation or another we regret

Now I'm the other man, no one's rooting for me
If I'm the other man, nature will abhor me

You know I want to keep my distance, does it happen anyway?
He knows you're gonna drift apart, and there's nothing he can say
I know that he's a stand-up guy, but that's none of my concern
We've all been in one situation or another, it's my turn

To be the other man, no one sympathizes
When you're the other man that everyone despises

He's gonna find out that the rumors are true
The ones that are still unbeknownst to you
He'll find out, so I'll tell you because
You gotta find out before he does

I know you've got a man in the picture, but it hasn't stopped me yet
We've all been in one situation or another we regret

Now I'm the other man, no one's rooting for me
If I'm the other man, nature will abhor me
Yeah, no one sympathizes
When you're the other man that everyone despises

Yeah
(Yeah) We've all been in one situation or another
(Yeah) We've all been in one situation or another
(Yeah) We've all been in one situation or another
