Throwing In The Towel

She was beautiful
She had a great job
Came from a wealthy family
To me she became
The formidable opponent
For your love and attention
I had nothing to offer
Except my time and devotion
And I dreamed that would be
Enough to hold your desires
But everytime we came close
She would be there
Drawing you away again
I learned you just loved the attention
While it was tearing me up inside
No more games for me
She can have the best of
What used to be mine
