What Was I To Do For A Friend

A table with books of poetry for sale.

The day that you wished me well,

Is the day that we said those vows do tell.

I thought it would be forever,

But something was splitting us together.

Was it another girl or a life you wanted,

Oh how I felt so rejected.

Some times I will turn hands of time,

And wish you were mine.

I thought once we raised that family,

All that past would be history.

But 2 daughters later and a life,

I became a mother and not so free wife.

You go out with your friends as no big deal,

But did you ever think of how I would feel?

I don't think this is going to work anymore,

Just pack your things and step out that door.

Was it another girl or a life you wanted,

Oh how I felt so rejected.

Some times I will turn hands of time,

And wish you were mine.

What started us to be going just so right,

Then it seems night after night we fight.

Why would I try so hard to make us stay in love,

I feel helpless because my tears fall from above.

Was it another girl or a life you wanted,

Oh how I felt so rejected.

Some times I will turn hands of time,

And wish you were mine.

So when will you come out and see this reality,

When will we be a family again oh when will you see?

When will be the day you will help me out again,

Can our children and I see a family with you as a long time friend.

Please let us see it through,

What oh what was I to do.

Sometimes I wish to turn the hands of time,

And wish we were fine.
