Having An Affair With The World

by Angela West

Oh how you make me feel
Oh how I long to be with you
My nights so quiet and still
But I know now that we are through.

The endless days of passion were enabling and merry
The break up was not easy, a burden I no longer wish to carry.

The deceit, the lies, your unfaithfulness, how could I not see?
The one who came to die was truly in love with me.

I took all your beatings, oh how I bled
But someone did it better with a crown of thorns on His head.

You know of my shame, scorn and disgrace
Depression took over; I no longer recognized my own face.

Why do I hold onto something not true?
When Jesus came and had victory over you.

I won't miss you, not one bit
Sneaking around in defeat, I've had enough of it.

This time it's over, our love is unswirled,
No more days of having an affair with the world.
