though she's an angel

he treats her like dirt

destroying her feelings

ignoring the hurt

she's the wife of my former friend.

.....................................................

he's in the pub boasting

she will do as she's told

she's the butt of jokes

his heart is stone cold

she's the wife of my former friend .

......................................................

she cries on my shoulder

trying to hide the bruise around her eye

still she defends him

though i know not why

she's the wife of my former friend

.......................................................

he's a coward and crumbles

when he faces a man

yet so quick with his fists

to this beautiful woman

she's the wife of my former friend .

......................................................

she knows of my feelings

but i could never condone

a life built upon cheating

i'd rather be alone

she's the wife of my former friend .

....................................................

once more she chooses

to live in her life of fear

whenever she's ready

then i will be here

until then she's the wife of my former friend .
