Family Man

This song is by Karyn White and appears on the album Karyn White (1988).

Yesterday you told me that you love me and you love me for good
You said that we'll get married when the time was right and I understood

But how long
Were you planning to deceive me? Love me and then leave me
How long will
You pull the wool all over my eyes?

Wish you had told me you were a family man
'Cause if you had told me I would have made other plans

It wasn't very long ago you promised me that we'd go away
Told me to be patient, you say good things come to those who can wait

How long
Will you play with my emotions, treat me like a token?
How long
Must you play your silly games with my heart?

I wish you had told me you were a family man
'Cause if you had told me I would have made other plans

I wish you had told me you were a family man
I'm walking out that door
'Cause if you had told me I would have made other plans
You don't call around no more
I would have made other plans

Please, I've had enough of this mess
Baby, oh, how long?
How long?

How long
Will you play with my emotions, treat my like a token?
How long
Must you play your silly games with my heart?

I wish you had told me you were a family man
'Cause if you had told me I would have made other plans

I wish you had told me you were a family man
'Cause if you had told me I would have made other plans

I know it just ain't right to your children and your wife
And all your love's an alibi For mixing up my life
How do I love you like I do, I do have perfect faith in you
How could I be so blind and let you play me, play me for a fool

I wish you hadn told me you were a family man
'Cause if you would had told me I would have made other plans
