Lyrics Someone Else's Story

Long ago in someone else's lifetime
Someone with my name who looked a lot like me
Came to know a man and made a promise
He only had to say and that's where she would be
Lately although the feelings run just as deep
The promise she made has grown impossible to keep
And yet I wish it wasn't so will he miss me if I go
In a way it's someone else's story
I don't see myself as taking part at all
Yesterday a girl that I was fond of
Finally could see the writing on the wall
Sadly she realized she'd left him behind
And sadder than that she knew he wouldn't even mind
And though there's nothing left to say would he listen if I stay
It's all very well to say you fool it's now or never
I could be choosing no choices what so ever
I could be in someone else's story
In someone else's life and he could be in mine
I don't see a reason to be lonely
I could take my chances further down the line
And if that girl I knew should ask my advice
Oh I wouldn't hesitate she needn't ask me twice
Go now
I'd tell her that for free
Trouble is the girl is me the story is the girl is me
