Led Astray

We’re in something of a tangle
Circling ‘round in this triangle
She loves you, and you want me
And I’m here, caught in between

Do I give in to the passion?
Do I risk my reputation?
I’ve never known a man like you
And I know she thought the same thing too

Is this how we begin?
With me cutting in
I’ll gain a lover, but lose a friend
You’ll spin me around, draw me closer in
I’ll forget about how this dance with you will end

I should walk away from you
It’s what any decent girl would do
You play us just like your guitar
It’s a losing game, I won’t get far

But this is how we begin
With me cutting in
I’ll gain a lover and lose a friend
You”ll spin me around, draw me closer in
I’ll forget about how this dance with you will end

Now I’m standing right inside your door
Heartbreak scattered on the floor
Do the pieces feel good on your feet?
What you’ve done to her, you’ll do to me

But you spin me around, draw me closer in
I’ll forget her name and the mess we’re in
You take me by the hand and I’m led astray
Dancing with the devil when you hold me this way

And this is how we begin
With me cutting in
I gain a lover and lose a friend
You spin me around, draw me closer in
I’ll forget about how this dance with you will end

And that is how it will end
Another cutting in
I’ll lose you my lover like I lost that friend
And you’ll spin her around, draw her closer in
And the circle will start all over again

That’s how it ends
Just like it begins
Nobody wins

And that’s how it ends
