"Torn Between Two Lovers" as written by Phillip Jarrell and Peter Yarrow....
There are times when a woman has to say what's on her mind
Even though she knows how much it's gonna hurt
Before I say another word let me tell you I love you
Let me hold you close and say these words as gently as I can

There's been another man that I've needed and I've loved
But that doesn't mean I love you less
And he knows you can't possess me and he knows he never will
There's just this empty place inside of me that only he can fill

[Chorus]

Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool
Loving both of you is breaking all the rules
Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool
Loving you both is breaking all the rules

You mustn't think you've failed me just because there's someone else
You were the first real love I ever had
And all the things I ever said, I swear they still are true
For no one else can have the part of me I gave to you

I couldn't really blame you if you turned and walked away
But with everything I feel inside, I'm asking you to stay

Torn between two lovers
Feeling like a fool
Loving both of you is breaking all the rules

    General CommentAn incrediby powerful song. One of those 70s one hit wonders.
    This song sums up well the feeling of being in love with two people and loving them both equally, the despair and unhappiness it brings.
