You Took A Lover

from by Gregory Hoskins



You took a lover
That was not me
With the desert heat done
You lay down with the snake charmer's son
You took a lover
That was not me.

I took a lover
That was not you
But don't feel bad
You're the best that I've ever had
I took a lover
That much is true

Oh, I know, I know
I am supposed to be so cool
But if truth be told
The cool become cold, cold, cold
And alone.

So, I took a lover
She took one, too.
The years have been kind,
I am hers and she is mine
Two spoken-for lovers,
Steadfast and true.
