She likes adventure with security,
More than one man can provide;
She planned adventure feeling sure that he
Would not be home till after five.

He turned on the lights,
turned them off again,
He said the one thing he could say:

All these years, where have I been?
Well, I've been down the road
to work and home again;
And I'm still here till I'm gone,
Don't you rub it in too hard
that I've been wrong,
All these years.

She said, "You're not the man you used to be."
He said, "Neither is this guy."
She said, "There's some things you refuse to see,
But I guess sometimes so do I."

She made no excuse why she was lying there,
She said the one thing she could say:

All these years, what have I done?
I've made your supper and
your daughter and your son;
But I'm still here, still confused,
But I can finally see how much I stand to lose,
All these years.

I'm still here, so confused,
But I can finally see how much I stand to lose,
After all these years.

From Wikipedia:
Sawyer Brown - American country music band founded in 1981 in Apopka, Florida, by five members of country pop singer Don King's road band: Bobby Randall (guitar) and Jim Scholten (bass guitar), both from Midland, Michigan; Joe Smyth (drums), Gregg "Hobie" Hubbard (keyboards), and Mark Miller (lead vocals). After King retired in 1981, the five members decided to form a band, first choosing the name Savanna before switching to Sawyer Brown; also the name of a road near where they practiced.
