​Second Hand Emotion

This song is by Faron Young and appears on the album Chapter Two (1979).

If passion were a river you would surely overflow
With feelings that say you're only mine
And lying in the circle of my loving arms
Tonight you will surrender one more time
And your eyes reveal the way you feel
And anyone would swear that your love was real

Second hand emotion only hand me down devotion
And in his arms is where you'd rather be
You gave such a fine performance
That it never feels like second hand emotion to me

Once I know you left how you don't want to hurt me
Thank you for the kindness that you've shown
I guess I'll make it easy for someone else to have you
As long as I know you'll be coming home
So I'll pretend that he's not there
If you'll keep on pretending that you still care
