Someone Else's Wife

This song is by The Go-Betweens and appears on the album Tallulah (1987).

Can't find my way down my own street,
Got to get my dream feet back on its feet.
I'm trapped in my house
On first name terms with its mouse.
Don't say this house is a shack.
We had it once, can I get it back?
It's a fine line between love and despair;
Do you know the times I've waited on your stair?
Don't say you've got a home and new life,
I won't stand in your way 'cause
You're someone else's wife.

I'm trying to set things straight
But I can't see straight.
I'm gonna drive if it takes me years,
Gotta learn to live with fear.
Don t say this house is a shack.
Lightning hit it so I struck back.
It's a fine line between love and despair;
Do you know the times I've waited on your stair?
Don't say you've got a home and new life,
I won't stand in your way 'cause
You're someone else's wife.

Don't say this house is a shack.
Thunder cracked so I cracked back.
It's a fine line between love and despair;
Do you know the times I've waited on your stair?
Don't say you've got a home and new life,
I won't stand in your way 'cause
You're someone else's wife.
