Replaced (Christine Lavin)

I have been replaced in your life Why am I surprised I'm the one who walked away You're the one who cried Now I hear that you've recovered I should be relieved Instead I hide under the covers at night I dream in black and white Second guess my every move Try not to think of you, because I have been replaced in your life A blow to my pride It's been just a couple of months Since we were side by side Now I see that you go strolling by With someone else While I continue on alone Heading for parts unknown Making solitary plans Braving the storms the best I can If it's true that women mourn While men replace Who's the stronger Who's the weaker Why should it matter in any case I have been replaced in your life The turning of the tides Has washed away your heartache Opened mine up wide Now I feel an old familiar hurt From years ago And I know I've gone through this before A different battle, a distant war When the odd man out evens the score It leaves you craving just a little bit more I have been replaced I have been replaced I have been replaced In your life I have been replaced in your life
