"Torn Between Two Lovers"
by: lynn anderson
songwriters: Peter Yarrow and Phil Jarrel

There are times when a woman has
to say what's on her mind
Even though she knows how
much it's gonna hurt
Before I say another word
let me tell you, I love you
Let me hold you close and
say these words as gently as I can

There's been another man
that I've needed and I've loved
But that doesn't mean I love you less
And he knows he can't possess me
and he knows he never will
There's just this empty place inside
of me that only he can fill

[Chorus:]
Torn between two lovers, feelin' like a fool
Lovin' both of you is breakin' all the rules
Torn between two lovers, feelin' like a fool
Lovin' you both is breakin' all the rules

You mustn't think you've failed me
Just because there's someone else
You were the first real love I ever had
And all the things I ever said
I swear they still are true
For no one else can have the
part of me I gave to you

[Repeat Chorus]

I couldn't really blame you
if you turned and walked away
But with everything I feel inside,
I'm asking you to stay

[Repeat Chorus]

Torn between two lovers

[Fade]

Feelin' like a fool
Lovin' both of you is breakin' all the rules
