  • I love you from the bottom of my heart
    And that's not gonna change, but things are grim
    When I'm watching you watch him
    I give you the best to give
    But I'm not feeling brave
    Chances are slim
    When I'm watching you watch him

    Oh oh what is there to learn?
    When he will let you crash and burn
    He never gives attention
    But you're still...
    Where do I fit in
    When I'm watching you watch him?

    God only knows why I still wait around
    Except I hate to see you cry
    And I need you, but there are things I cannot do
    And I want you when he's playing all his games
    And it gets hard to tell who's the victim
    And I am watching you watch him

    Oh oh what is there to learn?
    When he will let you crash and burn
    He never gives attention
    But you're still...
    Where do I fit in
    When I'm watching you watch him?

    God only knows why I still wait around
    Except I hate to see you cry
    And I need you, but there are things I cannot do
    And I love you like a broken record plays
    But I'm a window payin' a phantom limb
    When I'm watching you watch him
    When I'm watching you watch him
    When I'm watching you watch him Writer/s: Eric Hutchinson
