AFTER A WOMAN CHEATS

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.   after a woman cheats,
                  no matter how many times
                  you wash the sheets,
                  they'll never be clean.

            II.   the air contains his breath,
                  even the garden
                  smells of death
                  and will never be green.

           III.   the loving that we make,
                  it all feels like
                  a second take
                  in a second-rate show.

            IV.   and every word we say,
                  these walls have heard
                  on another day,
                  like an old radio.

      BRIDGE A:   I'll start a conversation
                  with pictures on the wall.
                  anything is better
                  than seeing what I saw.

             V.   I lie awake at night,
                  more alone
                  with you by my side
                  than when you're away.

      BRIDGE B:   three of us together
                  is one of us too many.
                  once I had a future,
                  but now I don't have any.

        ENDING:   after a woman,
                  after a woman,
                  after a woman cheats.
