The sad lost look in his eyes tears my heart apart

He is wedged between love and duty

He cares, he is concerned, and attentive

But he is not in love anymore,

And it tears him apart to deny his heart

His children, they mean nothing to him now

He loved them once, a lot

But now they remind him of the love he has no more

He is duty bound, but hates to be duty bound

Because home aint where his heart is anymore

Our bedroom door is a prison to him

He would rather there was no bedroom

So his marital rights are not a necessity

To mate is a burden, because he is not in love anymore
