Her ghost is there
I can see the outline of her shadow traced in the air
Sometimes I see her bended over your shoulder
I think what lies has she told you

And I see a smile light up your face
You like what she says
And I want to cry, it's killing me
But I play dumb instead

She's the uninvited guest
Who lives in our house
She's the other woman
Who's on your mind
Who's in your life
I'd have to be blind
Not to see it, not to feel it
And I'm running second best
To the uninvited guest
And it's breaking my heart

You don't know how I know
If it all was in the open you'd deny that it it's so
Just like the old song, "Torn Between Two Lovers"
It's not happening to others

It's happening to you and me
And the pain is intense
I should leave you but I love you
Though it doesn't make sense

She's the uninvited guest
Who lives in our house
She's the other woman
Who's on your mind
Who's in your life
I'd have to be blind
Not to see it, not to feel it
And I'm running second best
To the uninvited guest
And it's breaking my heart

I should leave you but I love you
Though it doesn't make sense

She's the uninvited guest
Who lives in our house
She's the other woman
Who's on your mind
Who's in your life
I'd have to be blind
Not to see it, not to feel it
And I'm running second best
To the uninvited guest
And it's breaking my heart
It's breaking my heart
