"Anyone Else" as written by and Radney M. Foster....
Baby I bought wine and roses
On my way home
Yeah, I know we can't afford it
But life doesn't last too long
This world has gone crazy
And knocked us both to our knees
I'm fumbling for the words to try
And tell you I love you
For hanging onto me
When anyone else

Would've been long gone
Packed it up and headed back home
And not a soul would blame you
After what I put you through
Yeah, anyone else
Would've gone insane
Called the game on account of rain
Anyone else, anyone else, anyone else,
Anyone but you

Mayday, baby, all the rivets
Popped loose it's a total tailspin
Too much grindstone
Too little time with you, girl
You know it's wearing thin
Baby let's trade in these teardrops
For warm kisses on skin
You got a drawer full of IOU's
And it's high time
You called those things in
When anyone else
Would've been long gone

You've passed up so many chances
To walk right out the door
Instead of dodging
A champagne cork
And watching the wet clothes
Fall to the floor
When anyone else
Would've been long gone
Packed it up and headed back home

And you can hide behind
A Cheshire cat grin
But you know it's true
Yeah, anyone else
Would've gone insane
Called the game on account of rain
Anyone else, anyone else,
Anyone but you
Anyone else, girl, anyone but you

    General Comment"Instead of dodging a champagne cork"

    It's actually "Instead I'm dodging a champagne cork"

    "you can hide behind a cheshire cat grin" I love that line.

    This is an all-around great song, and I'm surprised no one's really commented on it... I finally know how this feels...
