"I Wasn't Even In The Running" lyrics

I Wasn't Even In The Running

I knew there were others after you
I knew I had competition
But I figured I was way out in the front
In the number one position

Then someone stole your love from me
Like a thief so sly and cunning
Then I realized that all along
I wasn't even in the running

I thought the odds were all with me
I had a winning combination
Then I received to my dismay
Your wedding invitation

We were sweethearts for so long
The sudden loss was stunning
But here's the catch
Coming down the stretch
I wasn't even in the running

I was the favorite for so long
That folks just took for granted
That you and I would tie the knot
And in a love nest we'd be planted

But there was a dark horse in the race
From nowhere he came gunning
And the way he won your love from me
I wasn't even in the running

I thought the odds were all with me
I had a winning combination
Then I received to my dismay
Your wedding invitation

We were sweethearts for so long
The sudden loss was stunning
But here's the catch
Coming down the stretch
I wasn't even in the running
I wasn't even in the running
