Ooh, lover don't you know
All that's left now is some hope?
Thread worn thin on all our clothes,
But where we've been is what we choose.

All you wanted was a wife,
a lover to lie down beside at night,
A patient heart easing your troubled mind,
A home to keep you from the outside.

Ooh, lover can't you tell
a broken love from chiming wedding bells?
Lover, help me to be
A woman with only the truest offering.

    Song MeaningI suppose for me, this song is about a man and woman in a relationship and the woman has cheated. But this isn't a big surprise, like he'd previously known she has cheated before. That's it's sort of who she is:
    "Thread worn thin on all our clothes,
    But where we've been is what we choose"

    But he's disillusioned by his love for her and is too forgiving, he still sees a future with her. This confuses her:
    "Ooh, lover can't you tell
    a broken love from chiming wedding bells?"

    And she wants to be that for him:
    "Lover, help me to be
    A woman with only the truest offering"
