it ain’t fair to kiss you with the footprints of that man still on my mind

and if you look into my eyes the pain of leaving him ain’t hard to find

you hold me close and i recall painting his kitchen yellow as i cried

and i couldn’t love you the way that you deserve right now no matter how i tried



you might say that i am nobody’s wife, but i was somebody’s wife one time

i can say with certainty i didn’t like it much but the memories of those days flow like wine



there’s a sailing ship that’s waiting and she takes my broken heart out to see

i keep his face so far away from my mind but still it comes to me

early in the morning i awake and wonder where that life has gone

and the only time i let myself feel pain is when i’m singin some song



you might say that i am nobody’s wife, but i was somebody’s wife one time

i can say with certainty i didn’t like it much, but i miss him like a child



i might say that i am nobody’s wife, but i was somebody’s wife one time

i wouldn’t trade my new life for anything, but i miss him like child
