Maybe you knew somebody who was in love with an abusive, mean and plain old bad person . Maybe you were the shoulder they cried on and you were hopelessly attracted to them... Well then, your song might go like this one.

lyrics

“Instead of Him”- by Robert Louis Crane 6-11-13

1st Verse
When I saw her last night she'd was crying,
over some thoughtless hurtful thing he'd just done
and as she laid her head upon my shoulder sobbing
She told me he' d been drinking again

2nd Verse
I could see her faded black & blue old bruises
and the dark glasses to cover up his sins
she was telling me the lies he told her
that he would never hurt her again

Chorus
Oh I wish that she loved me instead of him
I can't stand to see her suffering again
why she can't see that I'm more than just a friend
I wish that she loved me instead of him

Bridge
She swears this time she won't take him back again
deaf, dumb and blindness are a tragic lovers friends
She's scared to leave but more afraid to stay
it's a vicious cycle that just rewinds and replays

Chorus
Oh I wish that she loved me instead of him
I can't stand to see her suffering again
why she can't that I'm more than just a friend
I wish that she loved me instead of him

tells me that she's grateful I'm her friend

Oh How I wish that she loved me instead of him
