Reba:
I've known about you for awhile now
When he leaves me
He wears a smile now
As soon as he's away from me
In your arms is where he wants to be

Linda:
But you're the one he rushes home to
You're the one he gave his name to
I never see his face
In the early morning light
You have his mornings, his daytimes, and sometimes
I have his nights

But does he love you
(does he love you)
Like he loves me
(like he loves me)
Does he think of you when he's holding me
And does he whisper
(does he whisper)
All his fantasies
Does he love you
(does he love you)
Like he's been loving me

Linda:
But when he's with me
He says he needs me
And that he wants me
That he believes in me

Reba:
And when I'm in his arms
Oh, he swears there's no one else
Is he decieving me
Or am I decieiving myself
(am I decieiving myself)

But does he love you
(does he love you)
Like he loves me
(like he loves me)
Does he think of you when he's holding me
And does he whisper
(does he whisper)
All his fantasies
Does he love you
(does he love you)
Like he's been loving me

Reba:
Oh, I should not lose my temper
Linda:
Oh, I should not be ashamed
Reba:
Cause I have everything to lose
Linda:
And I, I have nothing to gain

But does he love you
(does he love you)
Like he loves me
(like he loves me)
Does he think of you when he's holding me
And does he whisper
(does he whisper)
All his fantasies
Does he love you
(does he love you)
Like he's been loving me

    General CommentThis guy is obviously cheating on his wife, but she seems cool with it. I guess he is a good guy other than that and they both just really love him.

    General CommentIf you thought this song is her being "cool with it", then you really need to listen again. It is most definitely about infidelity though. I'd be the first to agree that most songs are open to interpretation, but it's pretty clear that she is anything but "cool with it". Neither of them are.

    The lyrics are wrong too. The one part is actually:
    Reba: "Oh, and shouldn't I lose my temper"
    Linda: "Oh, and shouldn't I be ashamed"

    Listen to the song.. it's full of heartache.. anguish.. loving somone, knowing you're not the only one.. and wondering how they are when they are with that other person.

    General CommentOkay this is my interpretation:

    The wife is basically saying "I'm not stupid. I know what's going on. I know that when you're not with me you're with her. I'm just afraid of loosing you because you're everything that I have."

    The other woman is saying "I may be the other woman but you really have him and can have him. He rushes home to you and you can hold him at night. That rarely happens for me. I dont have anything to loose but its not like i'm getting all of his attention you know? He gave you his name, all he's given me is an unquenchable desire for his every moment."

    No doubt they both love him. But. They're both really hurting in this situation. They're left asking all these questions and worrying about whether or not he really loves them at all? They can just imagine him thinking of the other woman when he's with them. It's a song full of heartache and longing and desperation...

    General CommentThis song is pretty self-explanatory actually. About a married man with a girlfriend. His wife knows about the 'other woman' but is clinging to the fact that maybe things will get better. She doesn't want to leave him because she 'has everything to lose'. She can't imagine life without him so she reasons that sharing him is better than not having him at all. The other woman knows he's married but has slowly fallen deep in love with him. She wants him for herself also but knows it will never happen. He's too worried about losing his marriage. Both women long to believe that they are the special one. That they are the one he loves the most. But they both only have him some of the time. When he isn't with them, he's with the other one. So they're miserable. And when he is with them, they're miserable anyway because all they can think about is whether or not he'd rather be with the other one. Although the man is the one in the wrong, both women are suffering equally.
