what were you thinking
when you kissed me at the cob and pen
almost as if you knew right then
i could be yours completely?

and what were you feeling
when you took me to your bed so soon
and with your children sleeping in the next room
made love to me so sweetly?

and i whispered into the dark
that you'd already stolen my heart
but you were already sleeping...

and what was i thinking
when i let you in so easily
you climbed right up my family tree
without even trying

and that night i told you i loved you
you just shook your head in disbelief
yeah and then you cried yourself to sleep
man those red flags sure were flying

and we could have lived that dream
if you'd only had some self esteem
but you were always hiding

how? you only asked me "how?"
you only asked me "how?"
when i told you i loved you...

and what were we thinking
when we jumped headfirst into the pool
without reading all the rules
"please no running and no diving"

and what were you thinking
when you kissed me at the cob and pen
even though your heart belonged to him
and i'd just be left there, crying...
