Lyrics to The Uninvited Guest
(Buddy Kaye/Jeffrey Tweel)

A ghost is there
I can see the outline of her shadow traced in the air.
Sometimes I see her bended over your shoulder
I think what lies has she told you
And I see a smile light up your face
You like what she says
And I wanna cry, it's killing me but I play dumb instead.

She's the uninvited guest who lives in our house.
She's the other woman whose on your mind
Who's in your life
And has to be blind, not to see it, not to feel it.
And I'm running second best
To the uninvited guest
And it's breaking my heart.

You don't know how I know
If it all was in the open you'd deny that is its so.
Just like the old song 'Torn Between Two Loves'
It's that happening to us
It's happening to you and me
And the pain is intense
I should leave you but I love you
Oh, it doesn't make sense.

(Repeat Chorus)

I should leave you but I love you
Oh, it doesn't make sense.
She's the uninvited guest who lives in our house.
She's the other woman whose on your mind
Who's in your life
And has to be blind, not to see it, not to feel it.
And I'm running second best
To the uninvited guest
And it's breaking my heart.
And it's breaking my heart.
