Lyrics

[TWITTY]
Good morning, darling
You didn’t sleep well last night
I felt your tears on my arm as they dropped

[LYNN]
I was thinking what we were doing
Would always be wrong
Now it’s over, but really it’s not
We’ve made it legal but we can’t make it right

[LYNN]
You’re still her husband

[TWITTY]
And you’re still his wife

We’re together and the law says you’re mine
But we both know that God’s on their side
We thought we found a way we could win
But we both lost the day we hurt them
When passion took over we forgot everything
But what living together would bring
We made it legal but we can’t make it right

[LYNN]
You’re still her husband
