I Saw Pity In The Face Of A Friend

Play

I saw pity in the face of a friend
And that's something I don't wanna see again
With sad eyes he gave me sympathy
'Cause he knew
Yes he knew
That you've been cheatin' on me

Oh I saw pity in the face of a friend
Even though he tried to hide it with a grin
Yes he put on a very good act
But I knew, yes I knew
You'd been runnin' around behind my back

So I'm taking that road away from you
Gonna find myself a place to hide
And when people remember they say
He was saving face and pride

Ohh ohh
I saw pity in the face of my friend
But for some reason I had to look again
And there in his eyes
The truth was plain to see
It was him, yes it was him
That you really loved and not me

Ohh I saw saw pity in the eyes of my friend
And it told me that you loved only him
And not me
Oh ohh I saw pity in the eyes of a friend
